Cinnamon Strawberry Bread

On my last bread post, Life of a Doctor's Wife mentioned that I maybe should start a site called Everyday Breading (clever, no?). And I'm realizing that I do make quite a lot of bread. Oh, delicious carbs. Also, bread is so gratifying to make.

This is a recipe of my mom's that I remember her making quite a bit when I was young, but when I mentioned to her a few months ago that I was making it, she said she hadn't made it in about a decade. Who knew? It's a staple in our house - Bart LOVES this bread and we alternate between serving it as a dessert (with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream) and just eating it for breakfast.

Cinnamon Strawberry Bread

Makes 1 loaf or 3 mini-loaves or 1 dozen muffins

1½ cups flour (all-purpose or white wheat or a combo of the two)
1 cup sugar
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp cinnamon
2 eggs
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1/3 cup oil
1 cup chopped and mashed strawberries (I usually chop fresh strawberries up quite small and then pulse them a few times in the food processor. If I'm using frozen, I just microwave them and then mash them with a fork).
2/3 cup chopped pecans (optional; I almost never add these)

Preheat oven to 350. Whisk together dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and stir until just combined.

Pour into greased pan (fill each pan or muffin tin about 2/3 full). Bake for 1 hour if doing a full loaf, 40 minutes for mini-loaves, and 30 minutes for muffins (or until a toothpick comes out cleanly).


  1. oh yum! I've been jonesing to make something like this! Looks delish, can't wait to try!

  2. This looks delicious--will make it soon for sure!

  3. I never heard of strawberry bread but it sounds delicious! I love having homemade bread in the house.

  4. Besides how delicious this recipe looks, I love that I have every single ingredient already.

  5. This sounds great! I have never made bread before, but this sounds like one I might be able to manage. I notice there is no cinnamon listed in the ingredients; is that correct? Just curious! : )

    1. Ack, you are so right. Fixed and everything else double checked :)

  6. Mmmmmmmmmm. My kids will eat ANY quickbreads, so I love making healthy ones for them, since they think they are treats!

  7. I was just,lamenting that the strawberries in our fridge were on there way out and read this not ten minutes later. I just took the loaves out of the oven and it is awesome! Thank you so much!

    Also, I got The Happiness Project because of your recommendation and I am loving it!

  8. Oh this is great--I'm going to have to try it.

  9. Oh man! This sounds soooo good! Why'd you have to go and tempt me? ;)

  10. Made them as muffins this morning for breakfast. They are gone. So good!

  11. So excited that I have all the ingredients on hand for this! I'll be baking up a loaf this afternoon.
