Sweet Strawberry Bread good!
This recipe is adapted from
I love Christy and I love her blog - she is even sweeter than this bread!
If you have not already discovered Christy's world I encourage you to 
visit her site - it is like visiting with a treasured friend!

Pour a cup of tea and enjoy
a big slice of this heavenly treat! 

Sweet Strawberry Bread

*1 c fresh strawberries, wash & slice
* 1-1/2 c self rising flour
* 1 c white sugar, plus two tablespoons
* 1-1/2 t ground cinnamon
* 1/2 c vegetable oil
* 2 eggs, beaten
* 1/2 t almond extract (not in original recipe)
* 1 c chopped pecans ( I did not add pecans because my children do not like nuts)

Place strawberries in a small bowl and pour two tablespoons of sugar over them. Stir and set aside. In mixing bowl, place flour, remaining sugar, oil, eggs, almond extract and cinnamon. Mix until well combined. Add pecans and strawberries and mix again until well combined and a pretty shade of pink. Pour into greased and floured loaf pan.

Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes,or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Allow to cool in pan ten minutes before turning out of pan to cool completely.

  1. This looks delicious and moist!! I wonder if I could omit the cinnamon and just use the almond oil? My husband loves cinnamon in everything, so maybe I'll just leave it in.

  2. Oh my...this looks so moist & full of flavor. I love that you added Almond extract. and I am with your kids...NO nuts for me!

    I just know you will get some bids on this sweet loaf of goodness @ the Bake Sale! :)

  3. Yum, I just made a strawberry bread too and put some chocolate chips in it. Yours must have been sooo good to eat.

The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
