"Awesome flavors!!! If you are a strawberry lover, this one is for you! A rich creamy texture to enjoy. The nuts are optional, but does add to flavor combination. If used, chopped pecans are recommended."

Questions & Replies

  1. Can you just use 2% milk..
  2. how long do you bake it in a bundt pan
  3. Would I be able to use frozen strawberries in this recipe.....I have an abundance of strawberries in my garden....but I don't have the time right now to make the bread...thanks,????
  4. I would like to double this recipe...I don't know if this would work w/this recipe
  5. Does this freeze well?


  1. This recipe is wonderful! I've made the batter into a bundt cake (as pictured), muffins, and as a loaf, it really doesn't matter which way you bake it, it's amazing! I let the cake sit for 24 hours, and it really gives a chance for the strawberries to meld in with the baked ingredients, so that it's moist and perfect. This is the greatest strawberry bread/cake I have ever prepared, and it will definitely be a staple in my kitchen. Thank you so much for sharing it!
  2. Time to bake this again. Great bread, sliced, and toasted for breakfast.....yummm
  3. Great quick bread recipe! This is probably the best strawberry bread recipe I have ever made ~ the whole family loves it. I used Splenda blend for the sugar and it worked great. I also sprinkled some turbinado sugar over the top before baking. My loaf was baked in a convection oven and it was done at exactly 50 minutes. If you love strawberries, try this recipe ~ you won't be disappointed! Thank you for posting a keeper.
  4. Very clear directions and easy to follow! My only issue was I followed the recipe exactly and I after I took it out and checked with a tooth pick that came out clean, I took the cake out and all the insides weren't cooked! It made a huge mess. I'll try again though!
  5. Absolutely delicious and super easy. The only reason I give this 4 stars is because it will never fit in a regular loaf pan!! I thought it looked too full, but figured the recipe must be right... nope... about 1/4 of the cake came dropping out the side of the pan and all over my oven! Still, I'll do this one again and again, just not in a single loaf pan!


  1. Added butter-milk instead of half-half.
  2. Instead of putting 2 cups of flour, put 1 1/3 cups of flour and 2/3 cup of almond flour to give the bread a subtle almond flavor.
  3. In addition to the pecans I also added a half cup of white chocolate chips. Love this recipe!
  4. Baked in 2 loaf pans and cut time back by about 10 min.
