Strawberry Quick Bread

Hello, all...
  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.
So many times when we have strawberries,
STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOREVER
comes into my mind.
That's a great song written by JOHN LENNON.

Paul McCartney....O MY.

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.


xoxo, bj

  1. Looks good. For me though, I won't use the sprinkle stuff, but overall, this looks delish.

  2. BJ, I could just hug you...you make me smile. You said you are still here after eating batter with raw egg. I never think of that with brownie batter licking. Who thinks past that chocolaty flavor? That bread was beautiful. I can see why you want to save it for a special day. I'll always love those Beatles tunes. Was that a lifetime ago...when we yelled and screamed for them. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  17. bj, you certainly have more self-control that I do! That luscious looking bread would never have made it into the freezer, unless I were lucky enough to have baked 2 loaves!
