Strawberry Bread Recipe

Posted by on March 10, 2016 in Bread/Muffins, Recipes | 25 comments

This Strawberry Bread Recipe comes from the Rose Mountain Manor Tea Room in California. I’ve change it just a bit so it has enhanced strawberry flavor using a bit of strawberry jello. The recipe makes one 5 x 9 loaf. It may not be strawberry season, but don’t worry as this recipe uses frozen strawberries which are easily available at your grocery store.

Strawberry Bread Recipe


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar less 2 Tbsp.
  • 2 Tbsp. strawberry jello (my addition)
  • 1 tsp. almond extract or imitation strawberry extract (my addition)
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen strawberries, thawed


  1. In a large bowl, cream together butter, sugar, jello and extract. Add egg yolks to butter mixture, one at a time, until light and fluffy. Sift in flour, baking powder and baking soda and mix well.
  2. Drain juice from strawberries saving 1/4 cup juice. Add the juice to mixture and fold in drained strawberries. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites to stiff peaks. Fold egg whites into mixture and spoon mixture into a greased 5 x 9 loaf pan. Lightly drop pan to release any air bubbles.
  3. Bake 50-60 minutes at 350 degrees. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove bread from pan after 20 minutes.
  4. Let bread cool completely before slicing.

  4. Oh Phyllis. I’m so envious of you. Strawberry season always reminds me of Spring, which I know you guys are just coming into. We’re now in Autumn and then winter so no seasonal strawberries for us for a while but I’m going to be trying this come Spring time. Thanks so much for sharing at Thriving on Thursdays. I’m featuring this one at tomorrow’s party.
