Homemade Strawberry Bread by The Amish Cook


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped strawberries (fresh or lightly drained frozen)
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts of your choice (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs until foamy.
  3. Add the oil, sugar, vanilla and almond extract tot he eggs and mix well.
  4. In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  5. Add to the oil mixture and stir until just barely moistened.
  6. Add the strawberries and nuts and lightly mix, being careful not to overmix.
  7. Pour into a prepared pan and bake until nicely browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 50 minutes to an hour.


Steve: ***DON’T BE A FOOL, LET IT COOL!!!*** I also substituted vanilla extract for the almond extract because I don’t like the taste of almond extract.

Sally: Refrigerate immediately after cooling!

Michelle: I used coconut oil, cut the sugar to 2/3 cup (combo of coconut sugar and regular), added a little applesauce, and put a little extra almond extract. Nice flavor combination. With as good as it turned out with my changes, I am sure the original recipe would be great too!

  1. Hope mine turns out okay. The batter was extremely thick, and I didn’t see any mention of that. I followed the exact recipe == fingers crossed
