I recently purchased a cookbook from a church in my hometown of Man, West Virginia. The cookbook was compiled by the ladies of Bruce McDonald Memorial United Methodist Church in the heart of South Man, West Virginia (the suburb of Man lol). Keep in mind that the entire population in the city limits of Man is about 800 people. The surrounding area has approximatley 10,000 people.
I ordered the cookbook from my first grade teacher who is a member of the church. I still don't have the heart to call her by her first name and to me, she will always be Mrs. Wolfe. So many of the recipes belong to ladies I know or their mothers, sisters, grandmothers and aunts. The first recipe that I decided to try is Strawberry Bread by Pam Robison. I'm so glad that I did! This recipe did not disappoint.
Pam Robison (Bea Donahue)
2- 10 ounce packs of fronzen strawberries (thawed)
1 1/2 cup of oil
2 cups of sugar
3 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
3 cups of all-purpose flour
Spray two bread pans with Pam (I used Bakers Joy). Stir strawberries, oil and eggs in a large bowl. Mix well. Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, soda and salt. Add to strawberry mixture. Bake one hour at 350 degrees. Cool in pans for 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with cool whip or vanilla ice cream (if desired).
