  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease 2 9x5 inch loaf pans.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, ground cinnamon and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center. Beat together the eggs and oil and pour them into the well. Stir just enough to moisten the ingredients. Fold in the strawberries and nuts. Pour mixture into prepared pans; fill containers no more than half full.
  3. Bake in a preheated oven about 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 20 to 30 minutes before removing from pans. Move to a rack to cool completely before slicing.

This was excellent. This bread comes out so perfect and flavorful. The key is to use really fresh strawberries and add more than it calls for. I have made 10 loaves of this. I have even added banana's to most batches. I found the way to get this bread to come out perfectly was to bake it in the oven at the required temp. but when the top starts to brown and split, shut the oven off and leave it sit in there for a good half-hour to finish. Otherwise, since the bread is so dense it will help with the bottom not over baking. THis is a excellent recipe if you have a bake sale as it makes two loaves.

I thought something was missing from this bread while preparing it. Besides noticing that there are not ingredients listed for the "Nuts" I omitted them from my recipe. The strawberries turned an awful color of pink and were very soggy and unappetizing in a tasty cinnamon flavored bread. I suspect that this bread would not keep well after baking. It also does not state what type of pan to use. So I used one large and one small loaf pan and had to bake substantially longer than the 60 minutes baking time in the recipe. All in all I would never, ever make this recipe again!! What a waste of fresh strawberries.

Mmm. I have been making this for years. This is one of those recipes you can make if you want to impress someone, and they will have no idea how easy it actually is. It is also great for bake sales! You can also substitute just about anything for the strawberries--this makes great banana bread, strawberry-banana bread, and perfect pumpkin bread. I've also used apples. Makes good muffins, too--just don't cook them as long. The recipe is fine the way it is but after years of making it I've found if you use a little less sugar and 1/4 cup less oil, it's perfect.

Nice recipe--moist, with perfectly balanced flavors of strawberries, cinnamon and nuts (I used pecans) It's a perfect, basic breakfast bread--not too sweet, with no distractions from toppings, fillings or streusel. I made half the recipe to make one loaf, but it didn't bake as tall as I would have liked--were I to make this again I'd use an 8x4" pan for one loaf.

I had really excellent results with this recipe. After reading the reviews for this one and also for the strawberry bread on the site, I made a few adjustments. I used only one cup of sugar and cut the oil to 1/2 cup. I also used 1/2 cup of strawberry flavored applesauce (the kind I send in my kids lunch boxes) I finely chopped 1/2 of the strawberries in the food processor and the rest were hand chopped in larger pieces. I cut the cinnamon to 2 teaspoons. One large loaf and 3 small ones were done in about 50 minutes. The finely chopped strawberries will bake into the bread while the large chunks will be visible. My bread had a nice cinnamon flavor with a little strawberry kick throughout. I think some of the reviewers who have been disappointed were looking for more of a strawberry cake like flavor. If you like quick breads like banana, pumpkin, etc, you will probably like this recipe. Thanks for posting it!

OH - MY - GOODNESS! One of my new favorite bread recipes - and I have a few. This bread is the BEST! During strawberry season here, I made more than a dozen mini loaves, and everyone loved it. I got five mini loaves from one recipe, which bake perfectly at 50 minutes. Instead of the entire amount of oil I subbed 3/4 c. applesauce, which gave it a really good flavor and cut the fat. I also reduced the sugar to 1-1/2 cup, and it didn't affect the yummy factor at all. I might try adding blueberries to the strawberries during blueberry season - LOVE IT!!!! Thank you Eleanor!

MMM Good!!! I made this without the nuts and it turned out delicious! Thank you Eleanor!

My husband said this is the best bread he has ever had. I have to agree with him. Even the kids liked it.
