In the spirit of the Strawberry Moon this evening, my cousin Jody's delicious Homemade Strawberry Bread is in order. The recipe is from her mother Gloria. It's a year-round winner but especially good with garden-picked strawberries during the season. It doesn't last long at the party!
3 Cups of Fresh or Frozen Organic Strawberries
3 Cups of King Arthur Flour
1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon of Sea Salt
3 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
1 tablespoon of Vanilla Extract
2 Cups of Sugar (I use 1 Cane and 1 Brown Sugar)
2 Stick of Butter or 1 and 1/8 cups of safflower oil (I LOVE BUTTER)
1 Cup of Nuts (optional)
Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
Mix everything but strawberries in the food processor. Add strawberries and pulse, but do not blend so that some chunks of strawberry remain.
Bake for 1 hour.
Makes 2 -9x13 pan loafs.
