This is SPECTACULAR !!!!!!!! I measured out 1 Cup of whole strawberries and then mashed them--the bread doesn't really taste of strawberries, so maybe next time, I'll mash the strawberries and then measure out a matter what, this is delicious..moist and packed full of flavor...I can't wait to make it again--Chris took one bite and had an ear to ear grin--he said "Oh, MAN !!"..which translates to a gazillion stars--I wish I could give more than five!! Thank you for this unbelievably delicious recipe!!!~~TERESA

This was a nice loaf but as Tgirl mentioned, you could not taste the strawberries. I took her advice and measured 1 cup mashed not whole strawberries. Perhaps, frozen stawberries would be more flavorful. But it was a nice loaf whose background taste was comparable to Banana Bread.

I used 1 cup mashed fresh strawberries but the bread still did not taste like strawberries. I will make it again and use some strawberry extract. It smelled great while baking.
