How To Make Fresh And Delicious Summer Strawberry Bread
Baking fresh summer treats is one of my favorite things to do, and this recipe is so easy and delicious it has already become a regular in my household. You can enjoy it with a hot cup of coffee for breakfast, or plop a dollop of whipped cream on top for a delicious dessert. With ingredients you likely have around the house, just a bit of whisking and stirring, and VOILA! You have a fresh treat that looks like a million bucks and only took a few minutes to whip up.
The recipe calls for:
- two cups of fresh (or thawed frozen) strawberries
- three and one eighth cups of all purpose flour
- two cups of white sugar
- one tablespoon of ground cinnamon
- one teaspoon of salt
- one tea, spoon of baking soda
- one and a quarter cups of vegetable oil
- four beaten eggs
- one and a quarter cups of chopped pecans
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease two 9×5 loaf pans. While the oven is warming, slice the berries and put them in a bowl stirring in the sugar. Put those aside for now while you prepare the batter. Combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and baking soda in a large mixing bowl and mix well. Blend the oil and eggs with the strawberries then incorporate the two bowls of wet and dry ingredients together. Stir in pecans, and divide the batter into the two loaf pans. Add a few sliced berries on top to make it pretty and bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean. Make sure to test the two separately. Let cool for 10 minutes then remove from pans and slice.
