This was good but we didn't find it great, like the other reviewers. I did not use the glaze per everyone's suggestion, and did find the strawberry extract. We started out baking 4 loaves and had a real problem. We took them out of the oven after 45 minutes, and the toothpick came out clean. However, within 5 minutes all 4 loaves had fallen. They weren't done. The toothpick came out clean because there was a space under the crust. I talked with my father-in-law who was a baker for 60 years and he told me to bake it for 55 minutes at 375 degrees. We made two more loaves and this was much closer to the cook time. He said it was because the strawberries while thawed were still cold and made the batter cold, increasing the bake time.
After all the work the bread was good but just 3 stars in our book.
