Love story ft. strawberries and oranges

image image

It’s been a while since I’ve baked, which is no wonder I’ve been feeling as though my creative spirits have experienced a dry spell. So, to get my creative juices flowing again, tonight I baked strawberry orange bread. I must say, it’s one citrus romance. I presume it would be scrumptious with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. Miam!

Strawberry orange bread


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • dash of vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • zest and juice of 1 medium orange
  • 1 cup strawberries, diced
  • 1 cup strawberries, puréed


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In another small bowl, mix the diced strawberries with approx. 1/4 cup of the flour mixture. Purée the remaining strawberries.
  4. In a large bowl, cream the oil, sugar, and eggs. Add the orange zest and juice as well as the strawberry purée. Add a dash of vanilla. Whisk to combine.
  5. Add in the flour mixture and use a spatula to mix just enough to incorporate everything. Don’t over mix. Fold in the strawberries.
  6. Bake for about 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
