Ingredients

  • 3 cups Strawberries coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup chopped almonds
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 cups buttermilk

Method

In bowl, gently toss together strawberries, almonds and 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the flour; set aside. In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until light and fluffy; beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in almond extract.

In separate bowl, whisk together remaining flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg; stir into butter mixture alternately with buttermilk, making 3 additions of flour mixture and 2 of buttermilk. Fold in strawberry mixture. Divide between 2 greased and floured 8- x 4-inch (1.5 L) loaf pans.

Bake in centre of 350°F (180°C) oven for about 1 hour or until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes; turn out onto rack and let cool completely. (Make-ahead: Store at room temperature for up to 2 days or overwrap with heavy-duty foil and freeze for up to 2 weeks.)
