Strawberry Quick Bread (Lactose-Free)

I continue my quest for dairy-free quick breads! I found this recipe on allrecipes. It’s delicious! I tweaked it just a bit. I cut the recipe in half and added some almonds in. Here is the way I made it:

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cup + 1/16 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 T ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 + 1/8 cups vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds

Directions:

Spray a loaf pan with cooking oil and preheat the oven to 350F.

Toss the sliced strawberries with sugar and let rest about 5 minutes.

In a blender, combine the strawberries, vegetable oil, and eggs. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking soda. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the sugar mixture, beating on low until combined. Add the nuts. Stir well.

Pour into the loaf pan.

Bake at 350F for 70 minutes.

Note: The original recipe suggested I bake for 45-50 minutes, but ovens vary, and when I inserted a toothpick into the center of the loaf after 50 minutes the center was still runny. So I let it bake for 15-20 more minutes. The edges came out crusty but the loaf was cooked and very tasty. You may want to pair this with butter or jam if it’s too dry.
