Such an outstanding recipe. I have made it 4 times each time tweaking the recipe a little more. It's equally delicious with whole wheat flour and I add a tablespoon of vanilla. I use brown sugar instead of white and 3/4 cup is enough (for 10 servings). I always use fresh fruit instead of frozen. In my oven it always takes at least an hour and a half to cook and it's a very moist bread. So far I've made strawberry raspberry strawberry cranberry and strawberry kiwi versions of the recipe and they have all turned out very well. Read More

My husband and I both loved this bread! It is moist and fruity and a good change of pace from the run of the mill banana bread. I smushed the strawberries up with my hands before adding them as someone suggested and I think that definitely helped disperse them. Read More

Absolutely Wonderful!!!! Everytime I make it someone asks for the recipe. I recommend cutting up the strawberries so the loaf will hold together better! Best strawberry bread I have ever tasted Read More

I halved this recipe and made it healtier. I used 3/4 cup sugar (instead of 1 cup) half whole wheat and half all-purpose flour (instead of all all-purpose) 1/4 cup applesauce and 1/4 oil (instead of all oil). Not overly sweet. Read More

I cut this in half. I had three different kinds of berries (blueberries strawberries and cranberries) in little amounts so I combined them all to make 10 oz. together. I had to add about 1/4 c. of milk to get it to come together. EDITED: This does not half well. At least for me it didn't. I will try this again when I can make the whole batch. Halving it was just a waste for me. Read More

I love this bread. I always have strawberrys around the house for the kids and this is a great breakfast bread!! I coat my pans with a little sugar before pouring the mixture in the prepared pan and when it comes out in makes a little crust on top of the bread. Read More

I made this recipe for a few friends and I loved it. Some of them didn't like it... probably because they couldn't figure out what fruit it was. I personally loved it and will definitely make it again! It has a nice subtle flavor and it was nice and moist. Read More
