Strawberry Bread

In a jam for an easy and great-tasting homemade bread? Our Southern-style Strawberry Bread comes to the rescue...and with frozen strawberries baked right in, you can make it any time of year!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (20-ounce) package frozen strawberries, thawed and mashed
  • 2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cup self-rising flour, divided
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat two 9- x 5-inch loaf pans with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large bowl, with an electric beater on low speed, beat strawberries, sugar, oil, and eggs until well mixed. Add 2-1/2 cups flour and continue beating until well combined.
     
  3. In a small bowl, toss pecans with remaining 1/2 cup flour then stir into strawberry mixture (see Note). Pour into prepared loaf pans.
     
  4. Bake 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool slightly then remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Notes

  • Mixing the pecans with the flour helps to keep the pecans floating in the batter so they don't fall to the bottom of the bread when baking.
     
  • This bread is wonderful topped with a smear of cream cheese. Strawberry cream cheese is especially good!
