I recently was preparing for a food spread and needed one more recipe to add to my recipes from my recipe blog. I found this recipe for Strawberry Bread in a recipe book that I had bought from my niece, Katie. She was involved in a fund raiser for a group that she was a part of - Godby High School Cougarette Dance Team - Tallahassee, FL. I had never heard of Strawberry Bread, so this recipe intrigued me. I liked it and I think you will, too.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. almond extract
2 eggs (separate whites)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 pkg. frozen strawberries, thawed & drained, or 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries
Cream sugar, butter, and almond extract. Add egg yolks. Add dry ingredients alternately with strawberries. Beat egg whites until stiff; fold in mixture. Pour into greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top of bread.
*I found a recipe later for Strawberry Butter and I think it would be good spread on a slice of Strawberry Bread, so I thought I would share it, too.
10 oz. frozen strawberries, thawed & drained well
1 cup soft oleo
1 cup powdered sugar
Combine strawberries, oleo, and powdered sugar. Beat until creamy. Spread on slices of Strawberry Bread.
