Ingredients Needed:

  • Flour + Salt + Baking Powder
  • Sugar
  • Butter
  • Vanilla
  • Lemon juice
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Strawberry jam

Lemon Juice? Yes. It doesn’t add any lemon flavor to the bread. It does, however, help the jam from getting brown.

Butter: Be sure it’s softened!

Strawberry Jam: If desired, you can go with another variety of jam ( mixed berry, blueberry, raspberry, etc) Go with your favorite brand or make it homemade.

Recipe Notes:

  • Do not over mix your batter. Simple mix it until there are no dry spots left in the batter. Over mixing can give you a dense loaf of quick bread.
  • Store any leftover quick bread in a covered container. You don’t need to refrigerate it unless the weather is hot/humid in your area.

Can I Freeze It? Yes. Store the cooled quick bread in a freezer safe covered container/storage bag. It will stay good for a couple of months.

    Great recipe. I used 4T olive oil and 4T applesauce. Added 2ounces chopped almonds and 1ounce chopped candied ginger. Baked in an 8 slot mini bread pan about 20 minutes. Used Smucker’s. Great texture.
