  • 100g diced strawberries 


  • Preheat oven to 160 fan/ gas mark 4, grease your loaf tin 
  • Tip all your dry ingredients into a large bowl, and mix together 
  • Create a little well in the middle, and crack your eggs in and give them a quick whisk

  • Now you can start to incorporate your dry ingredients into the wet mix 
  • Lastly, add you strawberries by gently folding them in 
  • Now pour your batter into the loaf tin, and bake for 50-55 minutes, or until golden.
