How to make Strawberry Bread
15 minutes
10 minutes
I feel like this was strawberry week at Lilyshop. I bought so many strawberries at the Farmers Market and I wanted to use them before they went bad so Sheena and I were thinking of recipes left and right. We sat at the kitchen counter staring at the box of fresh strawberries when it came to us. Strawberry bread! We both looked at each other and laughed because neither of us had actually made strawberry bread before. Actually, I don't think we've even eaten strawberry bread before. This super soft, sweet strawberry bread is incredible. If you like strawberries you'll love it!

Strawberry Bread
3 cups fresh strawberries, chopped 
3 1/8 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups white sugar
3/4 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt 
1 1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup applesauce
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray 2 whoopie pie baking sheets with non-stick spray. (You can also use regular muffin tins - We just like how thin the whoopie pie sheets make the muffins.)
2. Place your chopped strawberries in a medium sized bowl, coat lightly with sugar and set aside.
3. In a large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, sugar, and salt, mix well.
4. Add oil, applesauce, and beaten eggs to strawberries, stir until thoroughly combined.
5. Combine your strawberry mixture with your flour mixture, stir until dry ingredients are just moistened.
6. Spoon batter into pan to the top of each slot. Bake for 10 minutes. Let sit for 2 minutes and then remove from pan and let cool on wire rack.

Recipe makes approximately 30-32 muffins.
