My team member, Jenna, gave this recipe a test for me (as pictured above) and here’s what she had to say:
“This dessert has such great flavor, and the diced strawberries mixed throughout the bread was the best part! The sauce for the top is amazing too, and of course, gives this a true, classic strawberry shortcake flavor! The only issue I ran into was that the bread got stuck in my loaf pan. I greased it with butter and it still stuck (which seems to be typical of low-carb breads). I wonder if it would have come out easier by using cooking spray instead? I ended up just cutting it right in the pan and that worked.” – Jenna
