Strawberry Walnut Bread

Strawberry Walnut Bread | On Sutton PlaceBefore I start chatting about this Strawberry Walnut Bread, I want to humbly thank everyone for your lovely comments about my new shop. It never, ever fails to warm my heart when you are all so kind and supportive. Honestly, I feel so blessed.

So…let’s talk about this bread. I received an email from one of my most loyal readers, Jeanette. She asked me if I wanted to share her Strawberry Bread recipe. She said it was a family favorite and when I saw the ingredients I knew why. Any quick bread recipe that calls for oil as the fat is always moist and full of texture. Jeanette’s bread was no different. 

Strawberry Walnut Bread | On Sutton PlaceIt’s an older recipe so it had me make a well in my dry ingredients for the wet ingredients. I love doing that! Jeanette’s recipe called for pecans but I used walnuts because I have a gigantic bag in my freezer. I roasted them first and they added a perfect, nutty flavor.

These loaves were a tiny bit crunchy on the outside but moist and dense on the inside. The original recipe said to let the loaves sit overnight before slicing. Of course, I couldn’t do that. I tasted it warm from the oven and it was amazing. However, on the second day it was even better. I’m not sure why but it really was.

Strawberry Walnut Bread | On Sutton PlaceI used frozen strawberries from the grocery store but I sorely wished I had frozen some of my own last summer. I am definitely doing it this year. At least a few bags so I have them on hand to make this bread. Thank you Jeanette!

I am working on my 500th post giveaway. I’ll be back with more on that in a day or so. Enjoy!

Thoughts from my friends...

    Hi Ann,

    Was just wondering if there is any milk or water in the above recipe that was left out?
    The batter was extremely thick and quite difficult to mix in the strawberries and nuts.
    Hope not because I just put it in the oven!!

      The bread came out wonderful! Doesn’t need any milk or water added. I reduced the sugar down to 1 1/2 cups and it was definitely sweet enough and quite delicious ! Thanks for sharing this recipe! :)

    This sounds amazing! I can use frozen strawberries, but it’s strawberry season here in south Florida. Can I use fresh? Thanks for the recipe!

    Hi Ann! I made this Strawberry bread today, and we LOVE it! My kids couldn’t even wait for it to cool. Thanks for all of your great recipes :)

    I sure wish I wasn’t trying to lose 5 pounds right now, or I’d make this tomorrow! So I’ll pin, and try it when I’m done dieting :) Or, when I lose my willpower…

    Hello Ann, another bread recipe for me try. I’m sure this one will be just as tasty as the others that you have posted.
    I love it when you share photos of your home and yard. We are so much alike in our taste-it’s not funny!!
    When I find something I like, someone will say …..and where are you going to put that! Well I might not know at that particular moment-but like you-if I like it I will find a place for it.. eventually .

    Seems these days, I am hearing a lot of 10 day detoxing your body…. Well I thought it would be a good idea to do this but in a little different way. To do a 10 day detox on my home!
    I am clearing out items that are no longer needed or used anymore and passing them to family and friends who can bring new life to them. It’s a good feeling. :)
    I never get tired of friends and family who enter my home and say ” your home is sooo homey”.
    That is such a warm feeling.

    So, as I tour your home… gives me that feeling–very homey!

    Till next blog

    Thanks for everything.

    This bread looks scrumptious, Ann. I love quick breads like this. They are, well, quick! And so satisfying. I guess we are all so tired of winter and looking for Spring recipes, and strawberries are on our minds: I wrote about my strawberry muffins today:) Baking is THE best way to de-stress for me.

    Thank you and Jeanette for sharing this recipe!
