Somebody gave me this recipe many years ago, but I've forgotten who.
anyway it is delicious!
you need -
1/2 cup oil
1 cup sugar
10 oz (280 gr) frozen strawberries, thawed and drained or 2 punnets of fresh strawberries
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup ground almonds or 1 tsp almond flavouring
Beat eggs until fluffy.
Add oil and sugar.
Sift flour, cinnamon and baking soda into the mixture.
Stir in the strawberries and the ground almonds or flavouring.
Grease and flour one large or two smaller loaf tins.
Put mixture in the tin/s.
Bake at 180 degrees C (350 F) for 45 mins for smaller cakes or 70 mins for the large one.
Test with a toothpick.
cool slightly in the pan then remove and cool on a cake rack.
