Strawberry Apple Breakfast Loaf

If you think strawberries and apples do not seem a likely pair -- think of strawberry applesauce. It's pretty tasty. This is even better. We added raisins to our because my youngest was baking with me. He has to add raisins to everything. If you wish to leave the raisins off your list of ingredients feel free to do so, but they were wonderful!

I am baking up a breakfast storm. Cooking up (and freezing) pancakes, muffins, breads, French Toast, etc so that starting next week I can pull something out of the freezer and heat it quickly. Mornings are crazy as it is and my daughter won't eat eggs or cereal. Toast is boring. So I am baking up batches of breakfast goodies now so that I can use them later.

One of the items I baked today was this breakfast loaf. We all had a small sample and it was deelish!
2 Cups unbleached flour
3 large eggs
1 1/2 Cups of sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 Cup of canola
1/2 pt strawberries, cleaned, hulled and diced
1 Cup spiced apple chunks or chunky applesauce
1 Cup raisins, optional
Preheat oven 350
Mix eggs and sugar
Add vanilla, baking powder, mix well
Add flour and oil, mix well
Fold in fruit and pour in to loaf pan
Bake 1 hr, 15 minutes until nicely brown
Remove from oven and let cool in pan for 15 minutes or so before removing from pan -- Let cool further once removed from pan as it will be easier to slice when cool to the touch.

Yum! Do you just freeze them in freezer bags and then heat them in the microwave? What a good idea, my son won't eat cereal either so I'm always trying to make a hot breakfast in the morning and sometimes it just doesn't work out. I didn't ever think to freeze breakfast food. Good idea!

Katie, I am always flattered when you think something looks good!

Lynn, I actually wrap each slice individually in saran wrap and then place all the wrapped pieces in a big ziplock... I can either toast or nuke them. Often I take them out the night before and then they can eat them at room temp. Does your son like pumkin? I have a great recipe for pumpkin pankakes on here someplace. You could try those. I freeze those too. I freeze everything. TOmorrow I am making French TOast to freeze!
