I wish I could tell you that this bread was planned, but it was just an accident. It had been a while since I had baked Strawberry Bread (my recipe is posted on ReciBase). My daughter strongly encouraged me to make it soon. I thought I had a bag of frozen strawberries in the freezer, so last night I got out all the ingredients. However when I went to the freezer, there were no strawberries, just raspberries.
Ok, I thought, they will just have Raspberry Bread. With one exception I used the same recipe. The original Strawberry Bread had called for 2 cups of sugar. That was too sweet for me, so I have always used 1 cup. Because raspberries are not as sweet as strawberries, I increased the sugar to 1Â½ cups.
While it was in the oven, my daughter walked through the kitchen and said, "What are you baking it smells amazing." This morning when she took her first bite she sighed and said, "This really is amazing."
If you are B or AB, try adding 4 oz. of cream cheese to the batter. That's the way I made this bread in my pre-BTD days. It is delicious, but I no longer include this A and O avoid.
