In a food processor or blender process the strawberries until smooth. If needed, add a little soy milk to be sure they are blended and not chopped finely.
To the strawberry goo add the rest of the wet ingredients.
Add the wet to the dry.
Add the chopped fruit.
Bake for around 20-30 minutes until fully cooked.
I made this bread in order to use up some fruit which was going bad. All were very very ripe which I am sure added to the sweetness. It’s hearty and delicious, especially with a little vegan cream cheese on it for breakfast!
