Strawberry bread is made with frozen strawberries, and served with a cream cheese infused the sweet strawberry liqueur from the frozen berries. Not intentionally, but this bread is vegatarian, this bread is made with vegetable oil, and not butter. The texture is slightly crumbly, but it is a dense rich bread.
This came from a lady who I used to work with many years ago. In college one of my jobs was working the video department in a grocery store. Carole was the grocery manager, she was full of wit, and could really cook. Here is her strawberry bread, it was always gobbled up at get togethers with other co-workers. While Carole may not be around anymore, her fabulous strawberry bread can be made anytime.
