Large Loaves - You can also make this in 2 – 1 pound loaf pans or cut the recipe in half for just 1 loaf pan and bake 50-60 minutes.
Make Muffins – If you prefer to make them into Strawberry muffins, just grease miniature muffin tins and fill each to 2/3 full. Bake 12 minutes.
Make it Ornate – Alternatively, you can also bake it in an ornate loaf pan with the same minimal effort!
Don’t overfill your loaf pan. Allow room to compensate for rise.
Use the toothpick test to ensure it’s ready. Bake time varies based on your loaf pan size and material, altitude and even oven temperatures can vary. Insert a toothpick into the center. When it comes out clean it is done.
Room Temperature – Store no yeast bread in a sealed plastic bag or covered in saran wrap at room temperature for up to 5 days.
Refrigerate – Up to 1 week in an airtight container.
Freeze – Wrap them tightly in heavy foil, saran wrap or place them in freezer bags (I like to do at least 2 to prevent freezer odors from seeping in), and freeze for up to 3 months. Bring to room temperature to serve.
