Strawberry Bread

I also have lots of strawberries, this is a recipe I found on a nestie blog a while back and have been eying it since. I finally got to try it!

Strawberry Bread (From: Mrs.A's Blog, original recipe from recipezaar)

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups mashed strawberries
  • 1 1/4 cups oil (I used 1/4 cup oil and 1 cup apple sauce)
  • 4 eggs, well beaten
  • 1/2 cup strawberry juice, drained from mashed strawberries (I blended some more)
  • 8 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Mix first five ingredients together.

Make a well in centre of mixture.

Stir strawberries, oil and eggs in by hand.

Pour into two greased 9x5" loaf pans.

Bake at given temperature for 50 to 60 minutes.

Cool on wire rack.

For topping, blend reserved strawberry juice with cream cheese. Drizzle over cooled loaves. This made WAY too much, next time I would cut it down.
