    This bread was fantastic!! Moist and flavorful. I used the brown sugar but did not find it to be too sweet, just perfect!! I brought a loaf to our morning playgroup and there was nothing left! I did have to bake about 15 minutes longer than suggested to prevent the center from being soggy but other than that I followed the recipe to a tee. Thanks so much for posting:)

    Delicious! I made a few changes according to my tastes/diet. I used 1/3 c. coconut oil instead of butter and 1/3 c. agave instead of the sugar. I also made muffins instead of bread for convience sake. I freeze them so I can have one a day for breakfast. Just microwave for 1 min. and it's like having fresh baked muffins each morning! Next time I think I'll use whole wheat flour. Thanks for the delish recipe!

    Wonderful!!! It was very dense, but soft and moist, which is exactly what I was looking for. Very pleasant, smooth flavor. I used half whole wheat flour, frozen blueberries, and no nuts (hubby hates nuts in bread/muffins etc). I used both the brown sugar and the white sugar called for, but for the white sugar I used a half sugar/half splenda blend. I sprinkled some of that blend w/ some cinnamon on top. Hubby absolutely loves this! (Me too, but I made it for him!) I made it in a loaf pan, and it took maybe 20 min longer than the recipe says, but totally worth it! Might try it as muffins next time, or even in a cake pan and drizzle a little glaze over it after. Wonderful recipe! Thank you so much!

    Well, it's great as Peaches & Cream Bread too! I had peaches on hand so gave that a try instead of strawberries or blueberries. I just had my first piece still warm from the oven - SO GOOD! I'm going to tell my friends about this one!

    This is an okay recipe eaten warm or a couple hours later, but if you wait until the next day, you will be rewarded! I used half vanilla/half almond extract, increased the strawberries to 2c, and used finely chopped (almost ground) almonds. Since I made two batches, I made muffins and an 8x8 pan. I think the muffins are a bit tastier, but maybe it's because they were scooped first and got more strawberries, not sure. This is great plain, with butter, or with more strawberries on top for a decadent strawberry shortcake! I was also making a double batch of banana bread (muffins & an 8x8 pan), so combined what was left of both batters and baked a loaf of strawberry-banana bread!

    Very tasty! Instead of 1 stick of butter (or the 1/2 cup), I only used 1/4 of a stick and I also used low fat sour cream. It tastes exactly the same and its A LOT better for you! =]

    I made this with blueberries and it was moist and delicious. I used all applesauce in place of the butter to save calories and fat, but other than that made as directed. It was wonderful and I cannot wait to make it again. Thanks for sharing.

    My husband loved it. It was delicious! My son and I are not big fan of strawberries so we were not as excited as my husband but I have to admit it tasted good and was easy to make. The only change I made was to use strawberry yogurt in place of sour cream. It brings out the flavor better.

    Yummy!! I made this with blueberries and pecans instead of walnuts. I also took another reviewers advice and upped the cinnamon to 1 tsp. It is so hard to stop eating! LOL I made a loaf bread and baked it for 60 min and the middle wasn't quite done so I just turned off the heat and left the bread in the oven for a bit. It came out perfect. Thanks for posting!
