  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1-½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • ¼ cup light olive oil, or canola oil
  •  cup cranberry-strawberry juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1-½ cups hulled and coarsely chopped fresh strawberries


  • Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Coat a 9×5 loaf pan (affiliate link) with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. In a small bowl (affiliate link) whisk together the egg, egg white, oil, juice and lemon zest.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and stir until blended. (The batter will be thick.) Stir in the strawberries.
  • Scrape the batter into the prepared loaf pan (affiliate link) and spread it out evenly.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. (Mine took 55 minutes. If the bread is browning too quickly, cover it loosely with foil.)
  • Remove from the pan from the oven and set on a wire rack to cool for about 10 minutes. Then carefully remove the loaf from the pan and set it on the wire rack to cool completely.
  • Cut into 12 slices.

Fresh Strawberry Bread


I’ve decided to experiment with using olive oil when baking so substituted ¼ cup light olive oil for the ⅓ cup melted butter called for in this fresh strawberry bread.

The recipe suggests cranberry-strawberry juice but any red fruit juice would work. (I used a berry blend from Hansen’s.)

To boost it’s nutritional profile use a combination of whole wheat pastry flour and all-purpose flour.

If you are sugar-free, adjust the sugar content with your sweetener of choice.

And of course you could always use butter instead of olive oil if you prefer.

Be sure to to fluff your flour well before measuring it to prevent your bread from being dry, tough and/or heavy.


According to my calculations each slice of this yummy fresh strawberry bread has 188 calories
