I created this recipe to celebrate the diamond jubilee using red, white and blue ingredients.
Strawberries & Cream Bread
Beat butter until soft and then add the white sugar, mixing until fluffy.
Add the muscavado sugar and the eggs and beat together.
Add the cream and vanilla essence and mix in.
In a separate bowl mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt
Combine the flour mixture with the egg mixture and then fold in the strawberries.
Pour the mixture into a well greased loaf tin and bake in the oven for 60 - 70 mins at 350°F or gas mark 4.
Turn out of the tin and leave to cool on a rack.
Hot Blueberry Sauce
Put the blueberries, water, orange juice and sugar into a saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring gently.
Mix the cornflour and cold water and stir into the blueberries.
Simmer until the sauce thickens and remove from the heat.
Add the almond extract and cinnamon. If the sauce is too thick for your liking you can add either some more orange juice or water to thin it.
Serve hot with the Strawberries and Cream Bread for a totally yummy experience!
Eat as soon as the sauce is ready, it is so much nicer when it is piping hot.
