Same Picture Different Recipe "Aunt Karen's Strawberry Bread w/Strawberry Butter

Same picture different recipe.

Still sticking with the strawberry and the family theme though even sticking with aunts and their recipes.

This one is Mark's sister Karen's, our children's Aunt Karen.

I call her Aunt Karen all the time because the kids do.

I loved this the first time she brought it to us and I still do, the Strawberry Butter that goes with it is just "icing on the cake" so to speak, or I guess in this case, "butter on the bread."

You've got to try it, you're gonna love it.

3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 10 oz. pkgs. frozen strawberries, thawed and drained (save the juice)
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. salt
4 eggs, beaten

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 2  9x5 or 5 mini pans. Combine dry ingredients in large bowl. Make a well in center. Stir in eggs, oil and strawberries, mix well. Pour into prepared loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. (small pans, 20-25 minutes)

1/2 cup butter (room temp)
1/2 cup of the berry juice you saved
1 cup powdered sugar
Beat until creamy and refrigerate

To serve slice the bread and spread some of the strawberry butter all over it. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!

I add different fruits to butter a lot times and it is great for adding a little something extra to toast, or waffles, pancakes, french toast, or just life in general.
