a sweet recipe...

posted on: 8.02.2012


For these last days of summer.


Isn't the abundance of fruits and berries just the most beautiful sign that summer is upon us?  And I do so think it sad when it becomes clear, by the downsizing of the berry section at the supermarket, that the season is ending.

Here's a sweet little recipe for strawberry bread that may be just enough to hold onto the last berries of the season a bit longer.  And, also this recipe works great with frozen strawberries so if you are hunkering for a bit of summer even in the months ahead, well, this may be just the thing to whisk you back to these long days in the sun.


Strawberry Bread

3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups sugar
4 cups strawberries 
cut into small pieces and gently mashed
or
2 10 ounce packages of frozen strawberries
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 teaspoons cinnamon
3 eggs
1 1/4 cup oil
1/4cup nuts

Preheat oven to 350

Prepare to 9x5 inch loaf pans by spraying with non stick spray and lightly coating with flour.

Sift together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and sugar in a large bowl.  Make a well in the center.
Mix wet ingredients together.
Pour into well and stir together to dampen all ingredients.
Fold in the chopped nuts.  

Bake at 350 for one hour

I sure do hope you are enjoying these last days of summer.  I think I might have had just enough of this sweet season, perhaps, and will look forward to those fall days filled to bursting with holiday hustle and bustle... maybe, just perhaps...


live sweet,

  2. You're right, fruits and berries are signs of summer. I'm going to miss strawberry shortcake when fall rolls around! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  5. Oh sweet strawberries! We missed a big-picking at the local patch this summer, but got just enough from our own plants for strawberry shortcake...that is the ones the chipmunks didn't gobble. Thanks for the recipe- I will certainly try this soon or maybe in the depths of winter when I need a taste of sunshine.
    Cheers!
