Strawberry Chocolate Chip Bread

I must say I am thrilled that Spring is finally in the air! Yesterday was an absolutely beautiful day in the city, so beautiful I got to go on a long, refreshing fun outside! And I had this delicious strawberry chocolate chip bread to come home to.

The recipe I am about to share with you is deceiving: it is rich in strawberry and chocolate flavor but light in texture. So delicious, it tastes like chocolate-covered strawberries! I made 2 mini loaves. The first was devoured at work before noon, and the second was enjoyed by Nick and I over the weekend. This recipe is perfect for trying something unique and different with quick bread, and I definitely recommend it!
