Ingredients

  • Self-rising flour – If you don’t have any self-rising flour available, substitute with a combination of 2 cups all-purpose flour and 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Granulated sugar – The granulated sugar can be substituted for 1 cup brown sugar, or a combination of 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar.
  • Plain yogurt – Use unsweetened plain or Greek-style natural yogurt.  If preferred the yogurt can be omitted and the milk increased to 1 cup.
  • Milk – Full-fat milk was used in this recipe, but lower-fat varieties of milk can also be used.
  • Canola oil – Canola oil can be substituted for any mild flavored oil.  The oil can also be substituted with 1/2 cup melted butter.
  • Eggs – 2 large eggs were used in this recipe.
  • Vanilla extract – The vanilla extract can be substituted for vanilla essence.
  • Strawberries – Fresh strawberries will taste best in this recipe, but frozen sliced strawberries can be used if fresh are not available.  Do not defrost the strawberries before making the bread batter.

Baking

Pour the batter into the prepared baking tin.  Evenly place the remaining sliced strawberries on top of the batter. Bake for 50 minutes, or until golden and cooked through. Using a toothpick helps to determine if the center is baked through.

Strawberry Bread

Allow the bread to cool in the bread tin for 10 minutes, before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely. This can be eaten with a tablespoon or two of whipped cream, cream cheese, or even ice cream! It’s also pretty sprinkled with powdered sugar. Of course, the slices are delicious on their own.

The extra sliced strawberries on top of the strawberry bread are optional, but look great once the bread is baked. This bread could be drizzled with a glaze once cooled if desired.
