I love this! I followed the recommendation of other reviewers and chopped up my strawberries, leaving a few sliced for a few bigger chunks. I added some wheat germ and replaced half the butter with unsweetened apple sauce. It came out delicious and moist. A new favorite... thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease and flour a standard glass (8x5") loaf pan.
  2. Rinse, core and slice the strawberries; place in a small bowl and sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, blend together the remaining sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  4. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs until foamy, then add the vanilla and melted butter. Make sure the melted butter isn't too hot-just barely melted.
  5. Stir in the strawberries. Combine the two mixtures, blending until the dry ingredients are moistened.
  6. Scrape the batter into the pan and bake for 60-70 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Remove the pan from the oven and cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes before removing the bread from the pan.
