    Strawberry Bread

    Source of Recipe

    From "The Old Farmer's Almanac Readers' Best Recipes"

    Recipe Introduction

    "A delicious tea bread that is extremely moist and full of flavor. I brought one to a family gathering, gifted another to a friend, and enjoyed the third smeared with strawberry cream cheese."

    List of Ingredients

    ◦ 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
    ◦ 1 cups sugar
    ◦ 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    ◦ teaspoon lemon extract
    ◦ 4 eggs
    ◦ 3 cups all-purpose flour
    ◦ 1 teaspoon salt
    ◦ 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
    ◦ teaspoon baking soda
    ◦ 1 cup strawberry preserves
    ◦ 1 cup chopped walnuts
    ◦ cup sour cream


    Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease three 8 x 4-inch loaf pans.

    In a bowl, cream butter, sugar, vanilla, and lemon extract until soft. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. In another bowl, sift together flour, salt, cream of tartar, and baking soda. In a separate bowl, combine preserves, nuts, and sour cream. Add preserves mixture and dry ingredients alternately to butter mixture. Pour into prepared pans.

    Bake for 50 minutes, or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool on racks for 10 minutes before removing from pans to cool completely.

    Makes 3 loaves
