Here’s a recipe for Delectable Strawberry Bread:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup buttermilk
- 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan and set it aside.
- In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon. Set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. You can use an electric mixer or do it by hand with a wooden spoon.
- Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated. Stir in the vanilla extract.
- Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined, being careful not to overmix.
- Gently fold in the chopped strawberries and walnuts (if using), ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the batter.
- Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
- Bake for approximately 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.
- Remove the bread from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Once the bread has cooled, slice and serve. It can be enjoyed as is or spread with butter or cream cheese.
This Delectable Strawberry Bread is a perfect treat for breakfast, brunch, or as a delightful dessert.
