Fresh basil perfectly complements strawberries in this sweet beer bread. It’s delicious served alongside a pork or chicken dinner or toasted as a breakfast bread. I think it’s best with a fruity beer, such as one with citrus or apple flavors, but you may use any favorite beer. You may also substitute lemon-lime soda for beer.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
Stir flour and white sugar together in a large mixing bowl. Pour in beer and stir. Add strawberries and basil and stir until well combined; batter will be stiff and sticky. Scoop batter into the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle the top generously with coarse sugar.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes.

To make this in a dough , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
A bread first rising can be make in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can work it night before , then finish it off the next day.
