This turned out great. I made several changes to make it more healthy: -half white and half brown sugar -added 1/2c ground flax seed -added 1c walnuts -used half white and half wheat flour -used 1c applesauce plus 1/2c oil instead of 1 1/2c oil Also, I had no fresh strawberries so I mashed with a potato masher 16 oz of frozen strawberries partial strained

I did not care for this recipe.

Looking over the recipe, I was sure that 1-1/2 cups of oil would be too much. I also thought 1 T. of cinnamon and 1-1/4 pounds of strawberries would be too much. Indeed, when I mixed up the batter I was sure my suspicions were true. The batter is very thick, and almost looks oily. I suspect it is the juices from the strawberries that provide the extra moisture the batter seemed to need. It all came together to produce a moist, beautiful bread, full of strawberry flavor, and just the right hint of cinnamon. What did NOT work was the size of the pans called for. When I looked at the batter in the bowl I just knew I would need bigger pans, and as it turned out the 8x4" pans I used were just right. I prepared this exactly as written and believe it needs no changes or tinkering. And the sprinkle of oatmeal on the top is a great finish!

This was very tasty! Next time I think I would use half brown sugar/half white. Also...I added walnuts...and it as spectacular!

I tried this recipe with the same motivation its creator had: aging strawberries! And I'm really pleased with the results! No major changes, but here they are: Cut the sugar to 1 c. white, 1/2 c. brown. Added the walnuts per the other suggestions. I used 1 c. oil and 1/2 c. plain yogurt. Oh, and I didn't have 7X3 loaf pans. But, nevertheless, it worked nicely with an 8X4 and 12 regular sized muffins.

I halved this recipe as I only wanted to make one loaf. I'm glad I did--not bc this bread is bad but bc it is awesome and I don't need to eat it! It's only downfall is that it's crumbly where the strawberries are, but I can so deal with that bc the taste is wonderful. You can definitely taste the strawberries and the bread is slightly sweet--not too sweet at all. It lets the oatmeal and strawberries shine. I was a bit worried about the batter as it was so thick. The strawberries were a bit difficult to fold in but once I did it was fine. I did have to bake about 25 min longer, but I had overripe strawberries and I tossed in a few more than called for, so that would easily account for that. Thank you for the recipe!
