Twenty-two years ago I typed out a recipe for strawberry bread that I never used. Today I had 16 ounces of fresh strawberries I feared wouldn't last much longer. I decided it was finally time to give the recipe a whirl. (What can I say? I'm not the fastest draw in the land.) When I mixed it up it looked too heavy to me AND my twenty-two-year-old recipe mentioned mixing in cinnamon, which was not listed in the ingredients. Fortunately, I came across this recipe. It's exactly the same, except the recipe I was using called for 3 eggs, versus 4 here. Since I had already mixed my bread, I thought it too late to add another egg, so left that alone. Not only did this recipe tell me how much cinnamon to use and that the consistency of what I had mixed was right, but from the comments I was able to deduce that I needed to add a bit (1/3 C) of applesauce to make up for the fact that my fresh berries weren't as juicy as thawed frozen would be, and that 1 teaspoon of vanilla was also in order. By the end of my venture 22 years in the making, I turned out 4 beautiful mini-loaves (45 minute bake time) that my teens were just loving when they came home from school! Thank you so much!
