That’s a mouthful! One of my favorite fruits has always been the strawberry. And here in Ireland, we are spoiled when it comes to strawberry season, as it really is like candy! I like to experiment with fruits and veg when they’re in season. Even though still on crutches, I’m not letting that hold me back, but have been sticking with easy baking. So down below is a super yummy, really easy loaf cake. It’s packed with one of my favorite spices, cinnamon, and shows off those gorgeous strawberries! Pairs really well with your morning coffee/tea or as an after dinner dessert.
Strawberry cinnamon swirl loaf cake:
Grease and flour a loaf tin. Preheat oven to 165C.
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons butter softened
3/4 greek yogurt cup greek yogurt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
approximately 1 cup of strawberries(about half a cup whole, but you’ll slice the strawberries)
In a mixing bowl, soften the butter with your mixer until pale. Add the sugar and beat until combined. Then add the eggs
ONE AT A TIME. Then add the vanilla extract and Greek yogurt. Now you’ll sift in the flour and baking powder. Add in the
cinnamon. Then fold in the strawberries. Pour batter into tin, and with a knife, trace the figure ‘8’ back and forth(this creates
the swirl!) Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Yumo!
