Strawberry Bread

I posted an Apple Cranberry Bread recipe during the Christmas season, and it's fantastic. You would never know it's low in fat. So when I decided to make some Strawberry Bread, I figured I would use that Taste of Home recipe but adapt it to strawberry. So this is what I came up with.

You could actually use several fruit combinations in this bread: strawberry-rhubarb, mixed berries, apple, peach, mango! Go crazy! Be creative! Clean out your fridge!

Strawberry Bread

2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp. canola oil
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cup strawberries, cleaned, hulled and diced

In a bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and oil. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to egg mixture just until combined (batter will be very thick). Stir in the strawberries.

Transfer to an 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

This recipe was so easy and absolutely delicious. I used 1 ripe banana instead of the 2T canola oil and added 1 granny smith apple sliced and diced. It came out so moist and perfect. I will be making this again and again. Thanks!

Has anyone ever used frozen strawberries since fresh aren't in season?

Andrea said...

I haven't used frozen before, but it's definitely worth a shot. Just try to avoid allowing the strawberries to thaw too much before adding them to the batter. Otherwise, the bread will probably turn pink!
