Was invited to a BBQ and decided to bake something sweet for our hostess. As the strawberry season is in full swing, decided to have some fun with strawberries again!!
When I saw this recipe - strawberry-bread - decided this was so easy I had to try it!! What I did though, is baked mini-breads (as I think they are way cuter in small versions!)!!
Strawberry Bread (my changes in red)
2 cups fresh strawberries
3 1/8 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups white sugar (1 1/2 cups)
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
4 eggs, beaten
1 1/4 cups chopped pecans (didn't add)
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter and flour two 9 x 5 inch loaf pans. (used 5 mini-loaves pans and didn't flour)
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 and eggs into strawberries. Add strawberry mixture to flour mixture, blending until dry ingredients are just moistened. Stir in pecans. Divide batter into pans.
4.Bake for 45 to 50 minutes (Baked for about 35 minutes), or until tester inserted comes out clean. Let cool in pans on wire rack for 10 minutes. Turn loaves out, and cool completely.
