White Chocolate Strawberry Loaf

“This is a wonderful way to take advantage of summer's best strawberries. I hope that you will all enjoy it. The strawberries need to sit in the sugar for hours to develop the juice so do plan ahead just a bit. I started the berries in the morning and made the loaf in the afternoon.”

Directions

  1. Sprinkle the sliced berries with the 2 tablespoons of sugar and put them in the refrigerator in a covered bowl for several hours or overnight to make them release their juice.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  3. Mix the flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking soda, and salt and 1 ounce of the chopped white chocolate in a large mixing bowl.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the oil, vanilla, strawberry extract (if using) eggs, strawberry slices and the juice.
  5. Pour the strawberry mixture into the flour mixture, and mix just until blended.
  6. Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan (8 inches x 5 inches) and bake for approximately 40 minutes.
  7. FINISH: When the loaf has cooled melt the remaining 1/2 ounce of white chocolate in a small plastic bag in the microwave (should take 15-20 secs). Cut a small hole in the corner on the bag and squeeze the chocolate onto the loaf in any pattern you like.
