Strawberry Bread

4 cups strawberries, cut up into small chunks
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup oil
3/4 cup applesauce (I had some homemade applesauce)
3 1/8 cups flour
4 eggs (I used 3 because my duck eggs are so big), beaten
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
chopped nuts (optional, I did not add any to mine)

I'm not really one for "mix this and then mix that". Just put it all in a large bowl and mix it up good. The batter will be thick and sticky. Spoon out into two buttered and floured loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes  or until knife comes out clean.
It's wonderful!


  1. We almost never cook with strawberries - somehow they are one fruit that seems better raw (but then I have never tried one of your Strawberry cakes!). Have you tried strawberries with balsamic vinegar? Sounds a wierd combination, but it works well.

  2. I have not tried that but I can see how that might work. I know what you mean about not cooking with strawberries though as it seems like almost a waste but this bread really kept the strawberry flavor since the strawberries are cut in chunks.

  3. Now that looks really tasty, I think I will try it out. MMMMmmmmmmm!

  4. I think it looks absolutely delicious! Good job!

  5. I will definately try this one. I love making quick breads and strawberries....yum, what could be better! Thanks for sharing.

  6. My friend flewinto Anchorage yesterday and picked up his wife and some applesauce, I will let you know how it turns out.

  7. This recipe reads so good Becky.
    Made with ducks eggs would make it so rich too!
    I miss the "farm days", but getting too old to get back at it.......lolol.
    Have printed the recipe and maybe will pick up some strawberries when we shop this afternoon.
    Thank you.

  8. I am not sure the duck eggs make it any richer. Duck eggs are just a bit stiffer than regular eggs, taste is the same.
    Old has nothing to do with it, there are plenty of older people on here living the farm/self sufficient life. You are never too old to learn new things, just have to make yourself try them.
