Strawberry-Nut Quick Bread

Makes one 9 X 5 Loaf

I found some very sweet and tasty California strawberries at the Ketchum Atkinsons’ store at a nice price- under $2 for a 1 lb. Clamshell.  So, I of course ate some fresh but the thought of making this very tasty quick moist bread came to mind, so I did create a half a loaf, just for me.  With some whipped cream cheese as a topping, it was delicious.  Of course, I wanted to share this easy recipe so here it is.


  1. 2 eggs
  2. 1 C. sugar
  3. 1/2 C. oil
  4. 1 ½ C. all-purpose flour
  5. 1 Tsp. baking soda
  6. 2 Tsp. cinnamon
  7. 1/2 Tsp. salt
  8. 1 ½ C. of your favorite chopped nuts
  9. 10 Oz. sliced strawberries –fresh preferably but they can be frozen


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 and oil well a 9 X 5 X 3 loaf pan.  I also sprinkled some sugar on the bottom.
  2. Beat eggs, sugar and oil until well combined.
  3. Mix together well the flour, soda, cinnamon and salt.  I use my whip for this.
  4. Beat or mix all until well blended.  Batter will be thick.
  5. Add the berries and chopped nuts.
  6. Spread the batter in the pan and bake on the middle rack for 55 to 65 minutes.  For half a loaf, I used the same sized pan so the break turned out a bit less thick and it baked in about 40-45 minutes.
  7. Let cool in pan for about 10 minutes and remove to a wire rack.
