Simple Strawberry (or Any Berry, Really) Bread {recipe}

And not immediately after a public declaration that I never bake, with a Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe to prove it, I post a recipe for Strawberry Bread.

Simple Strawberry Bread {recipe}

make one 9×5-inch loaf

Strawberry Bread INGREDIENTS

unsalted butter, for greasing pans
1½ cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup canola oil
2 eggs
2 cups chopped strawberries (or any berries, really)
optional: 4 tablespoons strawberry jam

Strawberry Bread DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch x 5-inch loaf pan with butter and dust with flour. (Alternatively, you can spray the loaf pan with baking spray.)

Whisk flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk sugar, oil, and eggs. Pour sugar/oil/egg mixture over flour mixture (dry ingredients) and whisk until just combined. Fold in strawberries and pour batter into prepared pan.

If using strawberry jam, spoon it over the loaf, then using a small spoon or the tip of a butter knife, swirl jam into the top part of the batter.

Bake strawberry bread in the center of preheated oven until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean, about 1 hour. Remove pan from oven and allow the bread to rest in the pan for about 15 minutes. Turn the bread out of the pan and let cool on a cooling rack until completely cool to the touch (about 30 minutes).

Slice bread gently and serve. Bread can be wrapped tightly in plastic wrap, put into re-sealable plastic bag, and stored in refrigerator for a few days.

Serving suggestion: The bread tastes great toasted, with or without a little goat butter (pictured above) or whipped cream cheese.
