Strawberry Bread

A friend gave me this recipe a couple of years ago. I’ve made it with frozen strawberries a few times but nothing beats fresh berries. You can pretty much make it in one bowl with a wooden spoon which makes it super easy and yummy to boot. The baking time can vary a little bit depending on how juicy the berries are. It’s supposedly from the Portland Palate, 1992.

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1 ½ tsps ground cinnamon
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
2 eggs, beaten
½ cup vegetable oil
1 ½ cup fresh strawberries chopped
½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans (I recently used macadamia nuts and it was awesome!)

Preheat oven to 350°.

Grease and flour a 9×5 loaf pan.

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and soda. In a separate bowl, combine eggs, oil, strawberries and nuts. Add to flour mixture.

Pour into prepared pan and bake in 350° oven for 50 to 60 minutes.
