Strawberry Tea Bread with Whipped Strawberry Butter

It is time to make some strawberry recipes.  Today I made a strawberry tea bread recipe that I found on Pinterest.  I make a strawberry bread that is similar but, it didn't include oats and it had more oil in it. 

So for the taste test...Son #1 comes in and this is the serving he took out of the first loaf right out of the oven.  I look at him and he says, "What?" ..."I want a piece in the middle."  Then Son #3 comes in from school and he drops everything goes right to the bread and grabs the small end of this loaf and starts shoving it in his mouth at the counter....  The other end of the loaf is still there, Son # 2 was too worried about his car bumper to fool with eating at the moment!  So, I guess they liked it...no complaints. 


Strawberry Tea Bread 
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon aluminum free baking powder
3 eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup cannola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups of crushed strawberries ( crush, then measure)

Whipped Strawberry Butter
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
2 tablespoons confectioners sugar
1/4 cup crushed strawberries, room temperature


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Prepare two 9x4 loaf pans with baking spray.  
Combine flour, oats, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in a large bowl, set aside.
In a second bowl, beat eggs, sugar, oil, and vanilla.  
Pour egg mixture into dry mixture and stir until almost combined.  Add strawberries and stir until just combined.  Do not overmix.
Pour batter into prepared pans and bake 40-45 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool 5-10 minutes in pan.  Turn out onto cooling rack and let cool completely.  

To make butter:
Whip butter at medium speed with a mixer until fluffy.  Whip in strawberries and confectioners sugar.   
Yields: 2 loaves

We're planning a tea, also, and I will be sure to include this recipe. "Testing" it out tomorrow.

wow I had never thought of putting strawberries into a cake, or make a strawberry cream to spread with. Sounds delicious - and so summery! I will have to put aside this recipe for summer.

Have a wonderful start to spring, and thank you for stopping by my blog today.

Hi Sherry,

I'm certain your strawberry tea bread did not last a whole day, it was so good! Did you manage to steal a piece for your afternoon tea? I hope so, that whipped strawberry butter is, indeed, the icing on the cake!

Happy Easter!

That sounds wonderful! Thanks for sharing it at Tasty Tuesday!

I have never made strawberry bread, I don't know why not really. We love strawberries and I can make banana bread with my eyes closed I do it so often! I think that strawberry butter would be good on anything!

As for the son's opinions...they are all alike I have decided. Mine would have done the same thing, only he would have probably picked up the entire loaf and left a trail of crumbs. He is 31...it doesn't get better!

Good Morning Sherry, I had a recipe for Strawberry Bread years ago, but it was not really good. But I have a feeling this is going to be a really good one! Sounds like the boys gave it an A+!!
I am getting ready to bake some cookies, then off to town to buy some fresh strawberries. I did Pin this one...
Blessings to YOU
Hugs, Roxy

Looks yummy, Sherry. When strawberry season arrives here, I'll have to make some. A nice departure from strawberry shortcake, and it would be so good with coffee (or tea). :) Thanks for sharing. ~ Nancy
