This is a delicious sweet bread recipe that I received from a friend years ago. It's a wonderful breakfast option or you can make little loaves to give as gifts. This bread can also be frozen easily and saved for a later date.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9x5-inch loaf pans.

  • Combine flour, salt, cream of tartar, and baking soda in a bowl; set aside.

  • Stir strawberry jam and buttermilk together; set aside.

  • Combine sugar, butter, vanilla extract, and lemon juice in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add dry ingredients alternately with strawberry jam mixture, mixing just until blended. Fold in walnuts.

  • Divide batter evenly between the prepared pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 55 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes. Remove from pans onto cooling racks.
