Notes

** Applesauce – I have used store bought applesauce. But you make at home. Let’s quickly go through how to make applesauce at home: peel, core and cut 3 medium apples. Cook them with 6 tablespoons of water on low heat till cooked (about 20 minutes). Mash it with potato masher until you get desired consistency (chunky or smooth). You can use chunky or smooth applesauce in this bread recipe. I have used smooth and store bought one.

Here I have used applesauce as an egg replacer. This provides the moistness and also gives the lift to the bread while baking. You will not taste the applesauce at all in the recipe.

Traditionally it says that strawberry season is from June to August and it’s about to end. So I thought of making this delicious bread.

I had tried so many other strawberry bread recipes and all of them required chopped berries. Recently I came through this recipe. In this pureed strawberries are added. So the difference is with chopped one you get strawberry flavor here and there, but with pureed one you will get berry flavor in each and every bite.

Addition of nuts is optional. I like crunch in my baked goodies, so I prefer adding some nuts.

Alternately you can add chocolate chips too.
