My husband and I are strawberry lovers, so each spring we pick about 30 quarts. This recipe makes two delicious loaves. One we eat right away; the other we freeze and pull out when family comes to visit.

"This bread had a strange texture when I was mixing it - and it broke apart after cutting it, but it tasted really good!"

"I cut the recipe in half to only make one loaf and used 1 egg and two egg whites. After reading the reviews, I watched the bread closely while it baked and I'm glad I did. It was completely done after a little over 50 min. I really don't know if I will make this again. This bread is good, but not superb."

"This was moist and delicious! Instead of vegetable oil, I used plain lowfat yogurt, which worked very well. And instead of strawberries and walnuts, I used fresh peaches and pecans. It was so good!"

"After looking at the receipe and reading the comments, i made a few changes. I used frozen strawberries that I thawed and drained juice from. I also added about a teaspoon for red food coloring. The bread came out really good."

"I had problems with it, too. Thought it was my fault so I made it twice. Still didn't rise, and was baked fine but just fell apart. It did taste good though."

"The bread was very dense and didn't rise at all, but it still tasted good. Also, it was cooked through and burned on the top in only 35 minutes... my oven is pretty small, which might have caused it, but I recommend checking well before 70 minutes anyways."
