One of my dear friends would always make homemade strawberry bread around Christmas time. She would have a day of baking and then wrap them in beautiful paper and deliver them to all of her friends and family. She was kind enough to share the recipe with me so that I could start making this delicious holiday treat for my friends and family!

 Strawberry Bread Ingredients:

  • 3  Cups Flour
  • 2  Cups Sugar
  • 1  tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1  tsp. Salt
  • 3  tsp. Cinnamon
  • 2  10 oz. Packages of thawed Strawberries

Heat the oven to 325° F.

Mix the dry ingredients together and make a hole in the center.

Strawberry Bread Ingredients

Add eggs and oil to a separate bowl. Beat well. Add the strawberries. You can use fresh strawberries, but frozen strawberries work well too and they are usually less expensive! I like to purchase the frozen bags of whole strawberries. This is really helpful especially if you are making multiple batches. I just thaw the strawberries in a glass bowl in the microwave and throw them in my Ninja Chop! It is so much cheaper than purchasing the sliced strawberries!

Pour the liquid ingredients into the mixture and mix with a spoon.

If I’m taking this to a party or serving it for breakfast, I like to slice it and store it in a fun Christmas tin! If I’m giving the bread as a gift, I like to wrap it in plastic wrap and decorative cellophane. I hope you enjoy!
