The strawberries are starting to look amazing in grocery stores and I buy them in bulk.  We love strawberries at our house including the baby.  They have been perfectly sweet and juicy lately and we have been loving it!

Since I had about 3 pounds of strawberries in my fridge, I decided to bake something delicious.  Have you ever baked bread with strawberries inside?!  It is the BEST thing ever.  It is like tiny pockets of jam that burst inside your mouth with every bite.  It is one of the most delicious things ever.

strawberry_cinnamon_swirl_breadThis bread was thee most amazing bread that I have ever had.  It instantly became a favorite with my first bite.  But how can you go wrong with cinnamon swirled throughout and fresh strawberries inside?  Then top it off with a cinnamon sugar crust and a glaze drizzled on top.

THIS BREAD IS AMAZING!!

This is a recipe that I really hope that you try!  It is one that you won’t forget.  It is like a cinnamon roll bread combined with fresh strawberries.  And it is quick and easy to mix together and throw into the oven.   I promise this will be one of the best breads that you ever eat!
