Teacher Appreciation Day

Trevor's preschool is celebrating Teacher Appreciation Day today. We were encouraged to bring something homemade or homegrown for the teacher. Trevor and I made Strawberries 'n' Cream Bread for Miss Rachel.  



Recognize the strawberry? It's left over from the strawberry basket project I did. 

Of course, we couldn't bake for Miss Rachel without making some for ourselves too! The bread is so good. The recipe is from Country Woman May/June 1998. It originally had nuts, but the preschool is nut-free, so I left them out. 


Strawberries 'n' Cream Bread

                              1/2 c. butter, softened               1/2 tsp. baking powder
                              3/4 c. sugar                               2 eggs
                              1/2 c. sour cream                      1 tsp. vanilla extract
                              1-3/4 c. flour                             1/2 tsp. baking soda
                              1/2 tsp. salt                               1/4 tsp. cinnamon
                              3/4 c. chopped strawberries 

Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add sour cream and vanilla; mix well. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; stir into creamed mixture just until moistened. Fold in strawberries. Pour into a greased 8x4x2 loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 65-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
