Prevent your screen from going dark
2cupsall-purpose flourwith 1 teaspoon from the 2 cups set aside for strawberries
1 ½teaspoonsbaking powder
1-2whole strawberrieshulled and sliced for top
¼cupsemi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F., and prepare a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan by greasing it with butter.
Toss the diced strawberries with the 1 teaspoon of flour from the 2 cups you had set aside. Coat the strawberries completely. This will help to prevent them from sinking in the batter as the bread bakes.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar, milk, and melted butter together. Add to the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. It's ok if there are a few lumps.
With a rubber spatula, gently fold in the diced strawberries.
Pour half of the batter into the loaf pan.
In a small microwavable bowl, melt the chocolate chips for 30 seconds. Stir and if needed, melt for another 10 seconds. Stir until completely smooth. Drizzle half of the chocolate over the batter and swirl throughout with a knife.
Pour the remaining batter into the pan and top again with a drizzle of the remaining chocolate. Swirl again with a knife. Place the slices of strawberries on top.
Bake for 50-60 minutes until a tooth pick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
Allow to on a wire rack for at least 15 minutes before removing from pan.
