Springing Forward with Strawberries and Cream Bread and a Giveaway #ExtraSweetCreamyCGC

Strawberries and Cream Bread | Cooking In Stilettos

It’s Daylight Savings Time and we’re springing forward.  Instead of dwelling on losing that hour’s sleep, I decided to play with some springtime ingredients and bring a bit of brighness to the brunch table.

Growing up, my Aunt Maddie and my Great Grandmother loved going to dinner at a local spot in Western Mass – the Log Cabin.  One of my favorite desserts was their berries ‘n cream – something so sweet but so simple.  For weekend brunch, I love whipping up a quick bread and I decided instead of my staple pumpkin/harvest bread, I decided to channel a childhood favorite and go with that flavor memory and made a Strawberries and Cream Bread.

There were some gorgeous strawberries at the market this weekend – plus, the Junior SousPug will do anything he can to get his paws on a fresh juicy strawberry.  I also decided to add a touch of extra creaminess to the batter with a combo of Greek yogurt and some Extra Sweet and Creamy Coffee-mate Creamer which has been a staple in my iced coffee lately.  The combo was perfect.  I glazed the bread with a super simple glaze with an additional touch of Extra Sweet and Creamy creamer and it was out of this world delicious.

If you want to bring a bit of spring to your brunch table, whip up a loaf of this divine Strawberries and Cream Bread.  I won’t judge if you grab a couple extra berries and dip them in the glaze – pinky swear!
