Fresh Strawberry Bread
I found myself the other day wondering what I should do with some strawberries that needed to get eaten. I must find something to make with them. So, this is it. Now, it doesn’t look a lot like strawberry bread, but it sure does taste like it. Yum! Moist and delicious. This freezes well and makes delicious toast.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (or almond, if you like)
- 2 eggs, separated
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup crushed or chopped fresh strawberries
Cream together butter, sugar and vanilla extract. Beat in egg yolks, one at a time. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add flour mixture alternately with strawberries to creamed mixture.
Beat egg whites until stiff. Fold into strawberry mixture. Line a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with greased wax paper. Turn batter into pan. Bake at 350 degrees 50 to 60 minutes or until bread tests done. Cool 15 minutes on rack. Remove from pan and cool.
Makes 1 loaf.
