DIRECTIONS

  • Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; set aside.
  • In small bowl, beat butter until creamy; Gradually add sugar, beat 1 minute or until light and airy; Add brown sugar; Beat in eggs, one at a time; Beat in sour cream and vanilla.
  • Stir into flour mixture only until dry ingredients are moistened.
  • Fold in chopped strawberries and nuts.
  • Pour into a greased and floured baking pan. Just about any pan could probably be used (a loaf pan, springform pan, etc.), just keep in mind that the bread will rise, so you want to make sure your pan is deep enough to avoid overflowing. I used roughly a 10.5 inch, round pan, about 2 inches deep.
  • Place sliced strawberries, evenly, over the top of batter.
  • To make the topping: Combine the flour and sugar in a bowl.
  • With a fork or a mixer, cut in and mix butter until consistency of cookie dough (the best way I can think to describe it).
  • Tear topping into little chunks and spread evenly over top of sliced strawberries. I had just enough to cover them completely, however, as stated above, the amount you need will vary depending on the size of your pan. If you use a bigger pan, you will need to make about a batch and a half of what is stated above for the topping. If you use a considerably smaller pan, like a loaf pan, you might want to cut the topping recipe in half. It's hard to mess it up, so do what you think will work. :).
  • Bake at 350°F for 60 to 65 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean (cooking time may vary; it took about 90 minutes in my oven).
  • Remove from oven and let cool for about 10 to 15 minutes.
