I've really enjoyed the juicy, large and sweet strawberries this summer.
Only problem is....we eat them as fast as we get them....
and then, when I find a great recipe using them,
I am OUT....
I found this recipe on line
When I realized I had only a couple tablespoons of fresh strawberries
and this recipe called for 1 1/2 cups,
I searched for more fruit and came up with a lone apple...a little bitty apple at that.
I chopped up that little apple and came up with one cup of fruit so....
I just went for it.
I always sprinkle a little
FRUIT FRESH on fresh fruit, especially apples...it keeps the fruit from turning brown.
....this is a crazy photo...there's black and white canisters behind
the clear glass mixing bowl and it all looks wonky in the photo....
...this batter is sooo good..
I know you aren't supposed to eat anything with raw eggs in it but
I've done it all my life and I'm still here.... :)
...just a taste or two is not gonna hurt ya.
and, MERCY ME...with all this goodness thrown into the mix...
strawberries, apples, pecans....
I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that THIS BREAD
was gonna be goood.
It came out of the oven looking like a rock star..!!
I'm going to put it in the freezer, wrapped with press and seal and wrapped with this
cutie pie baker's twine...
which is only for the cuteness. :>)
Then slipped into a zip lock freezer bag.
Then, when I have a special occasion,
I can pull it out, make a strawberry sauce to go over it and top it with
sweet whipped cream.
STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOREVER
comes into my mind.
That's a great song written by JOHN LENNON.
His concert was, by far, the best concert I've ever been to...
and I've been to a LOT.
Mr. McCartney paid honor to ALL of the Beatles and it was so awesome.
He even played a bit of STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOREVER while
a video of the BEATLES played in the background...*gulp
One of our grandsons, DREW, went to see the memorial,
Strawberry Fields in NYC a few years ago...and I have a
photo of him there...SOMEWHERE.
OOO....just found it.
