Fresh Strawberry Bread

The Fresh Strawberries are in full harvest right now and very plentiful so when I found this recipe it was a perfect choice for this post. I participate in The Secret Recipe Club and every month we are given a secret blog to visit and find a recipe that we would like to present from their blog, my Blog assignment for this month is Secrets from the Cookie Princess .  I really thought that I would find a cookie recipe and I did find some awesome cookie recipes, but the recipe I really wanted to present is today's recipe Strawberry Bread.  Colleen loves to bake and started her blog in 2010 out of that love. She and her husband Dave, "Chief Tasting Office",
make their home in Massachusetts.  Colleen has a great blog and I sure hope that you will visit her and tell her Hi from Miz Helen!

Fresh Strawberry Bread

Fresh Strawberry Bread
Secrets From The Cookie Princess
Prepared in Miz Helen's Kitchen 
1 1/2 cups Fresh Strawberries
1 cup sugar, divided
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter, melted but cooled
Wash , hull and slice strawberries.  Place in a non-metallic bowl and add up to 1/2 cup sugar. (The sugar will help pull the juice from the berries.)
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together remaining 1/2 cup sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
In another bowl, beat the eggs until foamy then add vanilla extract.  Add cooled and melted butter, whisking constantly to temper eggs (this prevents the heat from the melted butter from turning your eggs into scrambled).
Stir in the Strawberries
Combine the two mixtures, blending until dry ingredients are combined and moistened
Scrape batter into a lightly greased loaf pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 60 to 70 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 
Remove from pan and cool on wire rack for 20 minutes
Recipe Tips From Miz Helen
I added a little of the juice from the Strawberries to the batter, to make it a little looser
I am serving it with Whipped Cream and garnish of a Strawberry
It is delicious!

 Mix The Wet With The Dry Ingredients

Pour The Batter Into A Loaf Pan And Bake
