Strawberries 'n' Cream Bread Recipe

Meet the Cook: Once strawberry-picking time arrives here each summer, my husband and I look forward to this bread. Since only fresh strawberries will do, I have been thinking of trying a different kind of we can enjoy it more often. Baking is great fun for me. I have to admit, though, sweets are my weakness. On occasion, a bag of chocolate chips never makes it to the batter! -Suzanne Randall, Dexter, Maine

"Baked this yesterday with strawberries that were in the fridge for a few days. It turned out great!! Didn't add nuts and I did use one cup of strawberries. I baked it in three mini loaf pans so it was done in about 40 minutes. Delicious!! Would definitely be baking this again!"

"This bread is sooo good! It is so moist, with a great flavor. I love the cinnamon in it. I don't put the nuts in. I make it for my family and friends and they all love it! I also make a sugarless version, replacing the sugar with agave sweetener and increasing the flour to 2 cups, and it is still really yummy! I definitely agree with reducing the cooking time, as mentioned in other reviews. I also bake mine in smaller loaf pans, to help it bake more evenly."

"I made this delicious bread today. This is a keeper. I made a few adjustments after reading the reviews. I used 1 1/4 cups finely diced strawberries and I set my timer for 47 minutes. It was done. I'm glad I didn't overcook it. It is always easier to add time, if needed. I used pecans instead of walnuts. Don't leave the nuts off the top. It makes this bread delicious.

I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home."

"I gave it 4 stars as the recipe is written. It needed more strawberries. I put in 1 cup, but I think it needs at least a cup and a half to 2 cups of berries."

"I read the reviews before making this recipe, and I took everyone's advice on using 1 cup of berries. I also mashed up about a quarter cup of berries and threw that into the mix, and I omitted the nuts. I made the recipe as muffins instead of bread, with a streusel topping. They turned out so good! I am definitely making them again. Thanks for the recipe!"

"Overall taste of the bread was good, but it definitely needs more berries. I also thought the recommended bake time was too long. I baked mine for 60 minutes and it was a tad over done, but not burnt."

"Suzanne, I think you will find that using frozen whole strawberries, thawed and chopped, will make an acceptable substitution when fresh berries aren't available. I have a recipe that uses frozen berries in syrup, but that makes a very sweet loaf. I'm gonna try yours with the frozen whole berries!"

"YUMMY! I wasn't sure how I'd like strawberries in a bread but this sure tastes GREAT! It's great for a snack anytime of the day or, just eat it for breakfast.

I like pecans and used those instead. I also put in 1 cup instead of 3/4 c. of strawberries. I made 2 batches in 1 week. I made 1 with real butter and one with margarine. The real butter one was sweeter and tasted better. I made the first one in the 8" x 4" loaf pan but made the other batch in 3 mini loaves. The mini loaves would make great gifts."
