How to make strawberry pound cake

Begin with preheating the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease and line a 9×5 inch (23×13 cm) loaf pan with parchment paper to ensure easy removal of the bread after baking.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Set this dry mixture aside.

In another large bowl, combine the sugar, butter, and vegetable oil. Mix until the mixture becomes creamy. Incorporate the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the flour mixture alternating with buttermilk, until everything is well incorporated

In a medium bowl, add the strawberry cut in smaller pieces and a tablespoon of flour. Toss to coat the strawberries evenly with flour, which helps to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the loaf during baking.

Gently fold the coated strawberries into the cake batter until they are evenly distributed.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula.

Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Allow the bread to cool slightly in the pan before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Before serving, dust the top of the bread with powdered sugar. Slice and enjoy this delicious, fruity bread with your favorite cup of tea or coffee!
