We were to be home for about 5 days this trip, and I went to the farmer’s market and bought a whole flat of strawberries. I did not need them all, but hey, I have a freezer :) I sliced several cups and placed them in sugar. While I contemplated between angel food cake and pound cake, I decided to make strawberry bread. And, Wow! You HAVE to try it. It takes about 10 mins to prepare and 55 ish mins to bake.
Here is the recipe:
2 cups fresh strawberries
3 1/8 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cups melted butter
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup chopped pecans
* Preheat the oven to 350
* Slice strawberries and coat in a little sugar
* Mix flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and soda in a large bowl
* Mix butter and eggs with strawberries and then add this to the dry ingredients. Mix until moistened. (does not resemble a typical batter bread)
* Add chopped pecans
* Bake in TWO 9×5 in pans for 50-60 mins.
*********Try not to eat all the batter*********
I could eat this every morning, and every tea time and never tire of it!
