Although it doesn't look like much, since the strawberry loses its bright red colour during baking, it does taste excellent. I opted for dried strawberries because fresh strawberries will collapse when baked this long and the whole thing might get very soggy. Adding a few slices might be considerable though.
I used freeze dried strawberry slices, but any version should do. Could even dry your own!
Halve the sugar content if using sweetened or sugar-coated strawberry pieces.
Strawberry and pistachio loaf
1/2 tsp baking powder
100g dried strawberry pieces (no added sugar)
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one by one. Combine flour with baking powder and sift into the batter. Finally add the strawberry bits and pistachios. Make sure everything is evenly mixed through. Scoop into a small loaf tin (about 15cm x 9cm) and bake in a 180C degree oven for 20 minutes, then turn the heat down to 160C and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
