Sourdough Strawberry Loaves


On Friday I picked up a flat of freshly picked, organic strawberries from one of my favorite farmers. Thanks, Jamie! I made a bunch of jam, then decided to try a strawberry loaf...in the vein of a banana bread. Easy peasy.


Ingredients makes four mini loaves or one regular loaf and two minis
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 cup organic dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup yogurt (I used plain, but you could use whatever you have)
  • 1 cup sourdough starter
  • 1 cup organic strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 8 organic strawberries, hulled and halved for topping the loaves
  • organic granulated sugar, as needed for topping the loaves
  • Also needed: loaf pans, butter for greasing pans

Procedure
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare loaf pans with a light rubbing of butter. Set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl combine olive oil, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, yogurt, and sourdough starter. Sift in flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir until just moistened. Fold in the quartered strawberries.

Divide batter between prepared pan. Press halved strawberries into the top of the loaves; I used two strawberries per loaf. Sprinkle with granulated sugar, approximately 1 generous teaspoon per mini loaf.

Place pan in the oven and bake for 55-65 minutes, depending on the size of your pans. Mini loaf pans take around 55 minutes; large loaf pans can take up to 65 minutes. An inserted toothpick should come out clean. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before slicing.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
