I know we have all heard of banana bread, but strawberry bread?  Sounds delicious!  Next time I go to the grocery store I am buying a bunch of fresh strawberries!

  • 3 cups fresh strawberries
  • 3 1/8 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs, beaten

* nuts are an available option, I have found many differing recipes for this that included walnuts or pecans.  I  am choosing to leave the nuts out of this bread.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).    Butter and flour two 9 x 5 inch loaf pans. Or just use the Pam spray for baking.  It works great!
  2. Slice strawberries, and place in medium-sized bowl. Sprinkle lightly with sugar, and set aside while preparing bread mixture.
  3. Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and baking soda in large bowl: mix well. Blend oil and eggs into strawberries. Add strawberry mixture to flour mixture, blending until dry ingredients are just moistened.  Divide batter into pans.
  4. Bake for  50 minutes, or until tester inserted comes out clean. Let cool in pans on wire rack for 10 minutes. Turn loaves out, and cool completely.
