We picked a bunch of very ripe and juicy strawberries from our backyard this weekend. After gorging ourselves on them, we decided that we'd better do something with the rest. Enter my online recipe search which resulted in this glorious bread! It's so moist and yummy - we're in heaven! I found this recipe on allrecipes.com, posted by Ellen Rainey. However, I used some of the comments made by others to create the recipe you see below. Enjoy! It's amazing!
1 1/2 c. fresh strawberries
1 1/2 c. and 1 Tb. flour
1 c. white sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. vegetable oil
2 eggs, beaten
1 Tb. vanilla
What to Do:
1. Preheat oven to 350*F. Butter and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
2. Slice strawberries and place in medium-sized bowl. Sprinkle lightly with sugar, and set aside while preparing bread mixture.
3. Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda in large bowl; mix well. Blend oil, eggs, and vanilla into strawberries. Add strawberry mixture to flour mixture, blending until dry ingredients are just moistened.
4. Bake for 45-50 minutes (or until knife inserted comes out clean). Let cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Turn loaf out and cool completely.
