Hello all– Love a little loaf of quick bread. It takes about 15 minutes to get it into the oven. It smells sweet and fruity while it’s cooking. And it’s great to share with a friend and a mug of tea. Simple pleasures.
ORANGE STRAWBERRY BREAD
1 orange, peel grated, juiced
1 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
2 tab. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups strawberries, cut to bits
Grate the peel off of the orange. Then cut it in half and juice it. Set the peel and juice aside.
In a mixing bowl beat the two eggs and sugar until blended. Then stir in the sour cream, oil and vanilla. Next mix in the flour, baking powder and salt. And finally stir in the strawberries, orange peel and juice.
Spoon the mixture into a standard loaf pan (9″ x 4″) that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake the bread at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes, until it’s well browned and a sharp knife inserted in the top comes out clean. Delicious warm with a slather of butter and a mug of tea!

Hey Lisa, thanks! Loved the photo of the snow reflected in your lake!! So Lacey and beautiful!! thank you. xox
Oh my goodness Rhonda, that loaf looks delicious!! So moist and what a perfect way to use seasonal strawberries. I think that orange and strawberries are a great combination.
Hi Suzanne!! Is your farmers market up and going for the summer?? Any strawberries?? I always love when you show what you picked up at the market! hugs!
I haven’t gone but hope to this weekend. Generally we don’t get any spring/summer produce until May so this weekend I’m going to check it out. Sometimes it is end of May or June. Hugs Rhonda hope you are well!!
Will be waiting for that farmers market produce post Suzanne! xo
Oh I can’t wait to make this during strawberry season! Rhonda, how is the weekend going? Are you doing anything fun? It’s supposed to snow here and it’s a little chilly…too much for walking. So I”m catching up on housework and blogging. Hugs to you friend.xoxo
He Mary!! Weekend was great– finishing up our Seattle trip. Went to a wonderful church– just 5 years old, but filled with young families and had a wonderful worshipful morning. And took the ferry out to Bainbridge Island– explored a bit and had lunch. Hoping it warms up there so you can get out back to your walks!! xox
Rhonda, your church visit sounds great and peaceful! What a wonderful trip to take a ferry to the island and exploring too! I hope it warms up too….we are still getting chilly temps and snow! I am trying to be patient and heard this weekend and next week will be much warmer! So I’ll start walking with my neighbor friend Anita. xoxo
Hope you and Anita got out this weekend!! I love to have a walking buddy— makes the time go so fast! Here’s to warmer weather! xo
We didn’t get to walk this weekend as she had plans, hopefully during the week when she gets out of work. I have this coming week off for spring vacation and am spending a night over in Ogunquit, Maine with my future daughter in law. I”m really looking forward to a girls night. xoxo
That sounds so fun Mary! Hope you have a great time together! xo
Hi Rhonda, we had a wonderful time in Maine. It was very cold at the ocean but we did stay a few minutes and then went back to the resort to relax and do the hot tub. I’m very blessed to get along with my future daughter in law, she’s a peach. Safe travels, friend.
Sweet and healthy cake… i will try to make this soon.. 🙂

Hi Rhonda – I have never had the pleasure of eating strawberry bread. Apparently there is a place in Charleston, Illinois that makes a killer strawberry bread, I might have to include it in StateEats if I can find a recipe for it. – Kat

This sounds so tasty!!
Yummy x 10!
