Fresh Strawberry Bread

8 Comments

With the harvest season in full swing, and summer winding down, the strawberries are abundant. I wanted to preserve this last taste of summer in a breakfast bread, but the only recipes I could find used frozen strawberries. I wanted to use the fresh ones, so I had to develop my own recipe. This one came out right the first time, not something that happens often!

As usual, the amount of cinnamon is geared to DH’s preference, but you could reduce it to one teaspoon for just a hint of cinnamon flavor if that is more to your taste. Don’t be afraid of the amount of oil, it isn’t any different than using a cup of shortening or butter.

Bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes, or until done.  Don’t rely on a toothpick test, you’ll overbake them.  Just bake until the centers are firm.

Let the loaves cool in their baking dishes for 10-15 minutes, then remove and set on a rack to cool.   Yum! Serve with a little butter, or just slice and serve warm with nothing else on it.

Want to do a great dessert with this bread? Layer thin slices with whipped cream and more fresh strawberries for a twist on the usual strawberry shortcake!
