Strawberry Bread

Honestly, I’d never seen strawberry bread until my sister in-law shared this recipe.  It sounded so good, I had to try it that day!  I replaced one cup of the oil with applesauce, and it still turned out moist and delicious.  It’s a great way to use up older strawberries . . . you know, the ones you hate to throw out, but don’t really want to eat. I’m sure it would make great muffins too.

  1. I will be trying this. Maybe today:)

  2. This looks delicious, wish I had seen this before throwing away my almost bad strawberries this morning! (I was heading home for a few days and didn’t want to leave them in my apt. to rot)…next time I’ll definitely just use them to whip up a loaf of this bread!

  3. Just took this to playgroup and it was a hit. I only used 1.5 cups sugar, substituted 1 cup applesauce for oil(like you) and next time I will mash the strawberries really well so I don’t have any chunks of strawberry. Oh, and I LOVE the cinnamon in it. YUM!

  4. I have this in the oven right now. I used the 1.5 cups of sugar and the 1 cup of applesauce. It is starting to smell really yummy. 🙂

  5. I really like this bread and so did the rest of the family!! Which is a major plus

    I would add more strawberries next time.

    I also added in a bit of vanilla to the mix and added more cinnamon as well.

  6. Alterations:
    3 cups of Strawberries, blended in our Ninja.
    1/2 c of Apple sauce
    1 c of Oil
    Extra cinnamon
    1 & 1/2 c of sugar

    Should have:
    Added extra baking soda – the muffins and bread loaf were a little dense and needed to rise a little further. Taste is amazing!
