Ingredients

STRAWBERRY BREAD

  • 1 cup mascarpone
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 eggs (remove from fridge 30 minutes before using)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (I use corn or sunflower)
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/4 cups chopped strawberries

STRAWBERRY FROSTING

  • 1/3 cup pureed strawberries (approximately 3 large strawberries)
  • 1/3 cup cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Instructions

STRAWBERRY BREAD

  • Grease and flour an 8-8 1/2 inch (20-22 centimeter) loaf pan. Pre heat oven to 350F (180C).
  • In a large bowl beat mascarpone and sugar until creamy, then add the eggs one at a time and beat, add oil and beat to combine.  Add flour, beat then add baking powder and beat until smooth (1 minute), fold in chopped strawberries.
  • Spoon into loaf pan and bake for approximately 45-55 minutes, test for doneness with a toothpick.  Let cool completely before frosting or dusting with powdered sugar. 

STRAWBERRY FROSTING

  • In a blender puree the strawberries and sugar then whisk in the cream cheese, combine until creamy, if you want a thinner frosting then add a little more strawberry puree or a little cream or milk.  Frost cooled Strawberry Bread.  Enjoy.
