Strawberry Bread

Summer always has such a huge array of delicious fruits and berries. I love them all, and just can’t help myself. I have to buy them. Unfortunately, I don’t get any help at home eating them, and sadly if I do not cook with them a lot of them will go bad. Larry really is not much of a fruit eater, and especially NOT berries, other than strawberries, which means either I have to eat them all by myself or I have to share them with friends. Lucky for me, and all the berries in our house, I have been baking a few berried goodies and have been sharing them with with friends and friends at church for our coffee cart.

Today I am sharing my moist and delicious strawberry bread. It is a simple recipe, with just a few basic ingredients. I always say, simple is often the best. This recipe is definite proof of that too.

Strawberry Bread

Preheat oven to 350* F or 190* C.

Spray cooking oil into a loaf pan and then dust with flour.

1 1/2 sticks or 12 TBSP softened butter

1 cup sugar

1 TBSP vanilla

4 large eggs

1/4 cup milk

2 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/4-1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries

Beat the butter and sugar together until soft and creamy, then add the eggs one at a time, mixing in between each egg. Add the vanilla and mix again.

Combine all the dry ingredients together then add to the egg mixture, 1/2 at a time, mixing in between. Alternate between adding the flour mixture and the milk. Do not over mix.

Once the batter is made, gently fold in the strawberry slices and spoon into the prepared loaf pan.

Bake for for about an hour or until it is lightly golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle.

I like glazes on my loaf cakes, so after it was cooled completely, I made a simple glaze with powdered sugar and a little lemon juice, then added some colored sprinkles on top.

This time, I had a very special sous chef helping me too. Mommy’s little helper. Juneau wasn’t sure if she liked strawberries or not, but she kept asking for more. She ended up eating a few of the slices.

Needless to say, this cake was berrilicious! It’s a great way to enjoy the beautiful strawberries of summer.

Stay cool, stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
