Here is a QUICK, easy, summer-y bread recipe for you. I used ONE bowl and mixed by hand…I love the kind of recipes that require only one bowl, a few measuring utensils and a spatula because we don’t have a dishwasher! Hope you are enjoying the sunny weather!
2 c strawberries
1/2 c sugar
1 1/2 c flour
3/4 t cinnamon
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 c vegetable or canola oil
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 t vanilla
1/2 c chocolate chips
Raw sugar for sprinkling (optional)
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a loaf pan, mini loaf pans or muffin tins.
Puree 1 cup of the strawberries in a blender. Slice remaining cup of strawberries and place in a bowl with the puree. Sprinkle with the sugar and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Add the oil, eggs, vanilla and strawberry mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour into your loaf pan and sprinkle with some raw sugar.
Bake at 350 until the top is golden and a toothpick comes out clean. 45-50 minutes for a loaf and about 20 minutes for muffins. I made mini-loaves and it took about 30 – 35 minutes.
