The votes are in, and Jules wins! I'll be casting on for Jules in the next couple of days. Thanks everyone for helping me decide!
I've been wanting to bake this recipe ever since I saw it a week ago. Today was that day... I made Strawberry Bread.
Look at how pink the batter gets: And here's a shot of it just before it's baked: and then here's a shot of it after it comes out of the oven:The strawberry bread is basically like a banana bread, in terms of general baking time and recipe structure. It turned out perfectly, but I kept thinking that it would be even better as muffins instead of a loaf. And it would really shorten the baking time (one solid hour in the oven). That, and muffins mean maximum slivered almond consumption. Mmmmm. I will make this again, but in muffin form, and then tell myself it's a very nutritious snack while I devour several of them.
Let's get a close-up, shall we? Oh yeah, that's what I'm talking about.
And since it's Self Portrait Sunday, Here is a shot I took (thank you timer function!) while I was licking the bowl and talking to my mom on the phone.... I haven't quite got the apprehension out of my face about having my photo taken, and that's something I really need to work on. But hey, it's still an accurate shot. Messy kitchen and all!
