This strawberry bread is different than any I have ever eaten. It's layered with a delicious strawberry cream cheese filling. It was given to me by a very dear friend.

  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. Add oil, beaten eggs, food coloring; mix well. Drain the strawberries and reserve 1/2 cup of the juice for the filling. Fold in the drained strawberries. Pour batter evenly into the prepared pans.

  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the cream cheese with 1/2 cup of the reserved strawberry juice. Slice the loaf twice horizontally to make three layers. Spread the cream cheese mixture between the layers and reassemble the loaf. Wrap loaves in plastic and chill in the refrigerator to set the filling. Slice and serve chilled.

I also did not split the bread but used the filling as a frosting on top. There was some left that I too used as a spread. It was pretty thin and I thought it would make the bread too soggy if I layered it. Read More

After making this recipe once(trying to cut the loaf into layers and the filling way too thin) I threw the recipe away. I only let my family taste the messy result and they kept saying how much they enjoyed it. I printed the recipe again and made a few changes and it is a big hit with everyone. I only slice the loaf in half and in the filling I only add 1/2 the juice to the creme cheese with some powdered sugar and vanilla instant pudding to help thicken it. Read More

I just adore this bread! I could eat the entire recipe by myself. I didnt find my filling runny at all and did put it between layers. I shared loaves with friends and they all found it wonderful as did my husband. Read More

This was just so-so. The bread was kind of dense I was hoping it would be a little lighter fluffier more cake-like I suppose. My cream cheese also got too runny and I just tossed it and used another cream cheese frosting recipe entirely. I probably won't make this again. Read More

this was a wonderful tasting bread. i made it for bread day at my daughters school as well as a christmas party and everyone asked for the recipe. I have made this bread several times the only time the filling came out runny was when I used low or no fat cream cheese if you use Philidelphia original cream cheese it is perfect. Also I use two brick of cream cheese but the same amount of juice Read More
