Strawberry Bread

  • 1 cup chopped strawberries (washed and hulled)
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 5/8 cup sugar
  • 2 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In one mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix well.
  3. In another mixing bowl, combine the wet ingredients: eggs, canola oil, vanilla and lemon zest. Whisk together. Gently add strawberries.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix.
  5. Place batter into a 4x8 loaf pan (I would suggest lining pan with non-stick aluminum foil for easy extraction from pan). 
  6. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until done. 
  7. Cool on wire rack and slice. Enjoy!!
