At Breadmaker Reviews we aim to provide you with not only great, in-depth reviews on breadmakers, but valuable information that will help you know exactly what to look for and where to get it.
but most importantly, here's the recipe. You're welcome.
Strawberry & Cinnamon Bread using a Breadmaker
- 1 packet frozen, sweetened strawberries (About 300g), thawed
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Drain the juice from the strawberries, setting aside about 1/2 of it.
- In a large mixing bowl mix together the flour, sugar, eggs, oil, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. (You can use the kneading function on your breadmaker to do this part but ensure you do the next step by hand.)
- Very lightly fold in the strawberries and the juice set aside earlier. Don't overdo this part as you want the strawberry flavour to streak through, rather than be dissolved in the bread.
- Add the ingredients into your bread pan, place it into the breadmaker and select the quick bake cycle (medium crust texture if available).
- Remove pan from breadmaker immediately after baking and allow to cool before removing bread.
