"I'm always looking for a snack that doesn't make me feel so bad after having eaten it! I used frozen, unsweetened strawberries. I let them thaw and also used the juice. My substitutes were as follows: 1 egg and 3/4 c. egg substitute, 1/4 c. oil and 1 c. unsweetened applesauce, 1.5 c. white flour and 1.5 c. whole wheat flour, 1 c. sugar and 1 c. Splenda, added 1 tsp. vanilla extract and 7 tsp. ground flax seed meal. My husband and I just gave it a taste test and it's wonderful-even with the modifications! Moist, yummy and good strawberry flavor. Will definitely make this again!"
"I made this exactly as written & it is wonderful!! I made two loaves last night - one as a gift, the other for my hubby & I. It is SO good!! I've got two more in the oven right now, to give as last minute gifts. I made strawberry butter to go with it (below) & it made it just that much better!!
1 10-ounce package frozen sweetened strawberries, thawed
1 cup (2 sticks) unsweetened butter, room temperature
3/4 cup powdered sugar
Combine all ingredients in mixer. Blend until smooth, scraping bowl occasionally, about 5 minutes (this is VERY important, in order to blend well). Transfer strawberry butter to medium bowl. Cover and chill. (Can be made 5 days ahead. Keep chilled. Bring to room temperature before serving.)"
"This is an awesome strawberry bread! Very very tasty! Thanks for posting! It went very well at my house and everyone said it was really cinnamon-ey and very good!:)"
"This bread is awesome!!!! Turned out JUST like the recipe says AND its so fast and easy to throw together! Can't get any more simple or tasty than this! My husband won't stop eating it! Thanks!"
"This was my first time making strawberry bread and I thought it was pretty good.It does have a nice strawberry flavor and it turned out real moist.I added 1 tsp of vanilla and I used rasberry applesauce in place of half the oil.I used a 16 oz package of frozen strawberries that I just partially thawed and chopped up.I wasn't sure if I would like this bread with nuts so I only put walnuts in one of the loaves.It turns out I do prefer it with nuts so next time I'll know.I made my bread in 3 mini loaf pans and 1 8x4 pan.If I make this again I may add some mashed banana...I bet that would be good!"
"I was a little concerned with the consistency of the batter when I was mixing the ingredients, so I added a couple tablespoons of milk to thin it out to fold in fresh berries. I made a few changes to the recipe. I switched out the cinnamon for 2 teaspoons of nutmeg, I used fresh strawberries and blueberries, and thought a little bit of lemon zest would add some nice flavor. I also added 2 teaspoons of vanilla and took out 1/2 cup of the sugar. The bread came out a nice caramel brown color with a thin crunchy crust. The inside is slightly crumbly, but not so much that it falls apart. It's not the consistency I'm use to, but it is very yummy."
"This strawberry bread recipe is absolutely fantastic! I halved the recipe to make only one loaf. Folded both walnuts and pecans into the mixture before baking. It's freaking delicious! Will definitely make it again! Thank you for posting!"
"My grandmother made a recipe VERY similar to this if not the same. I lost the one she gave me and now she has passed on so I tried to find one as close as I can remember and I think this is it. This is a great recipe! The only thing I changed is the oil. I used 3/4 c melted organic coconut oil and 1/2 c regular vegetable oil. It gives it a nice flavor. Also I did as my grandma did and I add red food coloring to the batter. It makes it not only tasty but also pretty and great for Christmas. (which is when she made it)"
"Awesome very good strawberry flavor"
"AWESOME!! This bread is just awesome. I made 1-8x4 and 2 mini loaves. Didn't change a thing except no nuts :)"
"Just as delicious as it smelled! I chose this recipe because it called for simple ingrediants that I always have on hand. I used fresh instead of frozen strawberries, and almonds because I was out of walnuts. I would make it again with almonds - it's perfect! Thank you."
"Made this cake with my 5yr old daughter. Will definately make it again. Thank you"
"I wanted to post this recipe for safekeeping and found it was here. I have made this for years and it always turns out great. I use 3 loaf pans 9x5x3. It is especially good when toasted and spread with cream cheese. It also makes a great gift."
"I had a bag of frozen strawberries that I wanted to use up, and found this recipe. I found this easy to make, and the batter was delicious (I had to taste it :) ). I will say that I found the bread to be a bit heavy. It was very tasty, but a bit too dense for my taste. Made a loaf for my house, and 3 mini-loaves to share with my co-workers too. Thanks for sharing!"
"This was a great way to use up frozen strawberries.I omitted the salt and nuts.I added 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp strawberry extract."
"An easy recipe that halves easily, looks good and tastes great. Thanks, MaeEast."
"I pureed the strawberries instead and made muffins from this for my toddler. I also cut the sugar by 2/3 cups and used 1/2 appplesauce for some of the oil (used 3/4 c oil). I also omitted the nuts. I can't get her to even try them, but my friends toddlers loved them. My husband and I loved them too. Great recipe!"
"I followed the directions, but somehow this just didn't turn out for me. By the time the toothpick came out clean, the loaf was very hard and dense. I may try again though since there are a lot of rave reviews."
"I made this and took it to work - they devoured it! So moist and not too sweet - just perfect!"
"Too good! Literally, I have almost eaten all of it myself. I used sweetened strawberries, so I cut the sugar to 1-1/3 cup. It came out perfect. Beats banana bread hands down. Thanks for sharing."
