Strawberry Bread

Hubby really enjoyed this bread... kids not so much, however Isabelle is the only one of my kids who likes berries. 

1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
1 cup granulated sugar, divided
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease and flour a standard glass (8x5") loaf pan. 

Rinse, core and slice the strawberries; place in a small bowl and sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar. 

In a large mixing bowl, blend together the remaining sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. 

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs until foamy, then add the vanilla and melted butter.

Make sure the melted butter isn't too hot-just barely melted. 

Stir in the strawberries.

Combine the two mixtures, blending until the dry ingredients are moistened. 

Scrape the batter into the pan and bake for 60-70 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 

Remove the pan from the oven and cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes before removing the bread from the pan.
