Here’s a new and different idea for using strawberries. If you have a pint of strawberries in your fridge that are looking a little sad because you never devoured them, this is a great way to use them up.

Doesn’t that look delicious? The bread can be spread with a nice dollop of cream cheese or butter.
Or you could use strawberry jam! Would that be too decadent? Too much strawberry? Is there such a thing?

You can start with just one halleck of these:

Ok, has this been enough temptation? Are you ready to make this bread? Here’s the tutorial:

The ingredients you will need are:
1 pint strawberries, rinsed and hulled
1/4 teaspoon salt

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

5 tablespoons, plus more for greasing pan
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla

1/3 cup water

First, grease an 8×4 loaf pan. Preheat the oven to 350°.

Next, quarter the strawberries and mash them in a small bowl. Sprinkle the salt over them. Mix it up and set aside.

After 45 minutes, if the bread looks like it’s browning too fast, then wrap tin foil over the top for the last 15 minutes.

The bread is finished when a knife stuck in the center comes out clean. Let it sit in its pan until mostly cool and then remove. If necessary, a knife ran around between the bread and the pan will help it come out. Like most quick breads, this bread will taste best the next day!

And there you go!
