Ingredients

Dry ingredients

Wet ingredients

  • 2 cups strawberries (hulled and quartered)
  • 1 very ripe banana
  • cup applesauce
  • cup vegetable oil
  • ½ to ¾ cup sugar (use more for a sweeter bread, although ½ cup is perfect, I believe. If adding less sugar, cut down baking time and start checking the bread for doneness five minutes earlier.)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon flax meal (not flax eggs-- don't add any water)

Instructions

  • In a small saucepan, place the strawberries.and turn to medium heat. When the juices bubble from the strawberries, turn off the heat.
  • In a bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients until mixed.
  • In a larger bowl, place all the wet ingredients. Whisk by hand or in a stand mixer, or with a hand mixer, until the mixture is all frothy and well-mixed.
  • Add the dry ingredients in two batches, mixing thoroughly after each addition. The batter will be rather thick, which is fine because the strawberries will release more moisture while cooking.
  • Add the cooked strawberries, swirling them through the batter to spread them evenly without mashing them into the batter.
  • Scrape the batter into a 9-inch loaf pan or a small baking pan. Smooth out the top. If you wish, you can layer on some sliced strawberries on top for a prettier look.
  • Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for one hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool on a rack before slicing.
