  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and diced
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (such as walnuts or pecans), optional
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)


1. Preparing for the Sweetness: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a loaf pan.

2. Strawberry Bliss: In a mixing bowl, combine the diced fresh strawberries with 1/4 cup of granulated sugar. This will macerate the strawberries and create a juicy, flavorful mixture. Set aside for about 15-20 minutes.

3. Batter Creation: In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining 3/4 cup of granulated sugar and vegetable oil until well combined. Add in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.

4. Flour Fusion: In another bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour

, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and salt.

5. Sweet Strawberry Union: Gradually add the dry flour mixture to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Gently fold in the macerated strawberries and chopped nuts, if using.

6. Baking Magic: Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread it evenly.

7. Oven’s Embrace: Bake in the preheated oven for about 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.

8. Cooling Tranquility: Once baked, remove the strawberry bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.

9. Finishing Flourish: If desired, dust the cooled Homemade Strawberry Bread with powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness and visual appeal.
