This was absolutely fantastic! My husband ended up with a whole flat of strawberries from a local farm, so I was really looking for something different to use them in. This was the perfect use for them. Like some of the other reviewers, I added more strawberries (4 cups: 2-pureed and 2 sliced), cut the oil down to 3/4 cup, and only used 1.5 cups sugar since my berries were fairly ripe. I also added 1 tsp vanilla. This had a wonderful texture and flavour. I will definitely make it again!

Where did my strawberries go?...I followed the recipe exactly. I used 2 aluminum bread pans. It took about 1&1/2 hours to finish baking in the center. The strawberries vanished after it baked and I wish I had doubled them. I could barely taste them The bread was also overpowered by the cinnamon. Next time I will double the strawberries and cut the cinnamon down to 1/2 teaspoon.

Thanks SO much to all the previous reviewers who provided such great tips. This turned out wonderfully! I halved the recipe to make one loaf - used 1/4 c olive oil, 1 1/2 c strawberries (I sprinkled them with sugar, then smooshed them up with my fingers), 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 1 tbsp vanilla extract. It was perfectly cooked after 45 mins. The consistency was light, the sweetness spot-on, and the strawberry flavor was just right also. I served this warm with a little fat-free Cool Whip and a sliced strawberry garnish. Thank you, Ellen, for boosting my baking confidence!!

I needed to use up some strawberries and decided to give this recipe a try. It was easy to make and it turned out great! After reading the reviews, I was concerned that I didn't have enough strawberries so I added some frozen blueberries. I also cut back on the cinnamon and added a little vanilla. My family was pleased with the results. I would definitely make this again. I was feeling lazy about washing two loaf pans so I baked it in a bundt pan. It filled the pan perfectly and would look nice for company or to take to a brunch or office party.

Very good, although with the recipe as is you can't taste the strawberries. Next time I will double the strawberries, blend in half with juice, and fold in the other half right before the batter goes in the pans. I used 1/2 c. less sugar and it was very good, I also used the sugar from the 1 1/2 cups to sprinkle over the strawberries, otherwise the bread may be too sweet. I baked mine for 1 hour and it was perfect.

I had some strawberries that most would have thrown out. They were past ripe for eating. I threw them into the food processor(there was 12 oz. berries) and put the 2 cups of sugar in and let it spin and set for a while. I also threw a half of a tangerine rind into the processor as well. I decreased the oil as suggested to 3/4 cup and decreased the cinnamon to 1/2 tbsp. Added 1 tsp. vanilla extract. This bread was perfect! The flavor of the strawberry, spice, and tangerine essence gave it such a nice spark. Took this to a meeting at work and everyone raved. I also made some cream cheese spread w/ 8 oz. cream cheese, 10x sugar to sweeten, and grated lemon rind. It complimented this very nicely.

Makes a sweet, moist, dense bread. I used fresh strawberries at the peak of ripeness, and was disappointed that the bread didn't have a stronger strawberry taste. The predominant flavor was that of cinnamon. If I were to make this recipe again, I would increase the strawberries - perhaps to 3C - and I would decrease the cinnamon. Additionally, I would consider dicing the strawberries instead of slicing them (or slicing them thicker) so that chunks of fruit would be visible when slicing the bread - like one would see in a blueberry or cranberry bread.

Great recipe, especially if you have a lot of fresh stawberries to use up. I doubled the strawberries to four cups and cooked in it one bundt pan instead of two loaves. I cooked it about an extra twenty minutes on top of the fifty, checking until knife inserted comes out clean. Everyone loved it!!
