Hello all– Love a little loaf of quick bread. It takes about 15 minutes to get it into the oven. It smells sweet and fruity while it’s cooking. And it’s great to share with a friend and a mug of tea. Simple pleasures.
ORANGE STRAWBERRY BREAD
1 orange, peel grated, juiced
1 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
2 tab. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups strawberries, cut to bits
Grate the peel off of the orange. Then cut it in half and juice it. Set the peel and juice aside.
In a mixing bowl beat the two eggs and sugar until blended. Then stir in the sour cream, oil and vanilla. Next mix in the flour, baking powder and salt. And finally stir in the strawberries, orange peel and juice.
Spoon the mixture into a standard loaf pan (9″ x 4″) that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake the bread at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes, until it’s well browned and a sharp knife inserted in the top comes out clean. Delicious warm with a slather of butter and a mug of tea!
