Now here’s an easy everyday breakfast idea: bake this pineapple and strawberry breakfast loaf for the toaster. You can freeze this recipe in slices, taking a slice out and popping it straight into the toaster in the morning. Remember to hit the little ‘freezer’ button on the toaster to get a nice, crunchy toasted slice.

A breakfast loaf like this one is simply a lovely way to start the day. Spread it with butter, top it with ricotta and fresh strawberry slices, or use it as the basis for a yoghurt and berry ‘pudding’. Yum!

This recipe makes two good-sized loaves – one for you and one to gift to a friend. It’s nice taking a breakfast loaf over to a friend’s, don’t you think? They will love you for introducing them to this delicious, easy recipe. Mornings have never tasted so good (or been so darn easy!).
