Enjoy a delicious loaf of Strawberry Pecan Bread! Ten minutes prep time and into the oven it goes. This easy to make bread yields 8 slices!

Recently I made a loaf of this delicious bread and photographed the “process” so I could share it here on the ol’ blog. Strawberry Pecan Bread is absolutely scrumptious, and I’m pretty confident you’ll enjoy it, too! The recipe is super easy to prepare, and before you know it, it will be baking away in your oven.

This bread loaf also freezes well, so if you want to double the written recipe, you can wrap the extra loaf very well in freezer bags or foil. It will store well in the freezer until you’re ready for another loaf to enjoy with family or friends! Here are the instructions for how to make this yummy strawberry pecan bread.

Making The Bread Batter

To make the batter for the bread, place flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda and salt into a large bowl. Stir well, to combine. Add 2 eggs, ONE AT A TIME, beating well after each one, using an electric mixer. The dough will be very crumbly, even after mixing.

Dry ingredients are combined, then eggs are added and beaten in, one at a time.Dough for the bread is crumbly after the eggs are beaten in.

Add The Remaining Ingredients

Stir oil into the mixture until incorporated into the “batter”. Once combined, add sliced strawberries and chopped pecans (or walnuts, if using), and stir gently until they’re mixed in. At this point, the dough will not be too fluid, but will be quite thick.

Oil is added, and stirred into the dough until incorporated.Sliced strawberries and chopped pecans (or walnuts) are stirred into the batter.The dough for the strawberry pecan bread is ready to add to a loaf pan for baking.

Time To Bake The Bread

Spoon the strawberry pecan bread batter into a generously greased and floured 9″x5″ loaf pan until evenly distributed. Pat the dough down with the back of a spoon until solidly combined.

Bake the bread in a preheated 350°F oven (on the middle rack) for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted deep into the top of the loaf comes out clean. When done, transfer the pan to a wire rack, and let the strawberry pecan bread cool 10-12 minutes before removing it from the pan. Run a butter knife around the edges of the bread to loosen, then invert the pan to remove the loaf.
