Bake Some Sunshine

The ultimate summer fruit, strawberries are best eaten when freshly picked. However, if you find yourself with a punnet that is beginning to get soggy, try baking the fruit into a bread.

Bananas are the usual suspects for a very ripe, tasty fruit bread, and strawberries work just as nicely.

You can make it too!
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 punnet mashed strawberries
  • 75g sunflower oil

How To

  1. Pre heat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. Line a 2lb loaf tin with foil.
  3. Chop the leaves away from the strawberries and mash the berries in a bowl. This can be achieved by roughly chopping the strawberries, then using a masher, or the end of a rolling pin, to crush the fruit. The berries transform into a slightly lumpy thick liquid.
  4. In another bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients together. Try to make sure that there are no lumps.
  5. Add the strawberries to the rest of the ingredients, and mix together well. The mixture will start to swell as the baking powder becomes activated by the strawberry juice.
  6. Pour the mixture into your prepared loaf tin. Bake the loaf for 20 minutes.
  7. After 20 minutes, remove the loaf and cover it with foil. This will prevent further browning.
  8. Put the covered loaf back into the oven for 15 minutes. By now, your loaf should be cooked. This can be texted by inserting a knife - if it comes out clean, the loaf is ready. if not, pop it back into the oven for five minutes.
  9. Leave your loaf to cool for 20 minutes, then slice and enjoy! You can eat this on its own, with vegan spread, vegan cream, vegan custard, or fresh fruit.
