Yesterday I announced that I was making this week Mother’s Week, in honor of moms everywhere. I’m continuing to honor you by showering you with a week’s worth of recipes that you can use for honoring all the moms in your life, this week and every week.
Yesterday I began with a recipe from my mom. Today I’m honoring Don’s mom, my mother-in-law, Mary Lou, with one of my favorite recipes from her: Strawberry Bread. It’s great for an afternoon cup of coffee and a snack, or to bring with you to a brunch or luncheon. I added the chocolate chips to the recipe, but it’s delicious without them too!
Thanks Mom and Happy Mother’s Week!
Mary Lou’s Strawberry Bread
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 beaten eggs
1/2 cup oil
1 cup strawberries (Fresh sliced or frozen-thawed and drained.)
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
approx. 1 cup chocolate chips (or however many you like!)
Mix together flour, sugar, cinnamon and baking soda.
Combine eggs, oil, and berries.
Add berries to dry ingredients.
Pour into greased and floured 9×5 loaf pan.
Bake 50-60 minutes at 350 degrees.
*She wrote on the recipe that she keeps hers refrigerated but it’s not necessary, and that it freezes very well.
