Easy Breads: Best Fresh Strawberry Bread Ever!

Updated on June 26, 2011

Take Advantage of End of Season Strawberries!

Fresh strawberries are still out there at budget friendly prices. Making strawberry bread and freezing it will make winter a little warmer. This is such a good bread! I don't eat too much of it because I am a diabetic, but it is the best! The recipe is easy and well worth the 50 minute cooking time and it will freeze well.

One of my daughters gave me this recipe. She makes it all the time since it is one of her children's favorites. From the time she brought me a loaf, the recipe became a keeper.

Two Loaves Are Better Than One!

Strawberry Bread: Recipe Makes 2 Loaves

  1. 3 eggs
  2. 2 cups of thinly sliced fresh strawberries
  3. 3 cups of flour
  4. 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  5. 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  6. 2 cups of sugar
  7. 1 1/2 cups of canola oil (you could probably substitute some applesauce for some of the oil, but I haven't tried that yet as the original recipe is just so good)
  8. 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon
  9. 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

Beat the eggs and add the sugar and oil. Mash the strawberries. You do not want a puree, just smaller pieces. Add the strawberries to the eggs, oil and sugar. Mix well. In a separate bowl, sift together all of the dry ingredients. Make sure they are well mixed. Combine the wet with the dry. Do not overmix. Pour mixture evenly in to 2 greased or sprayed loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees on the middle rack of your oven for 50 minutes.

The bread is done if a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. My oven takes exactly 50 minutes. Let the bread sit for 5 minutes and then remove from the pans. Place each loaf on a plate or cooling rack, top side up. With a pencil or a skewer, poke holes across the top. Your bread is now ready for the glaze.

  1. 1 cup of powdered sugar
  2. 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  3. 1 Tablespoon of milk

Mix together until smooth. If this is too thick (not a glaze consistency), then add a little more milk, maybe a teaspoon at a time. Gently spread this over the top of the bread and let the bread sit overnight. If your family is like mine, the bread will not sit overnight. Don't worry about that. Let them enjoy it!
