Strawberry Bread

I recently posted on my Facebook, that my dad gave me my Great Great Aunt Linnie’s recipe collection.  These recipes dated back to the early 1900′s.  I was so appreciative of this collection and could not wait to start trying some of the recipes.

September 16th, 1949 with her oven and stove set.

The majority of them are desserts and breads as she was very involved her local church group and brought treats to each meeting with the woman of the group.  Every recipe has the source written on it or a name of who it came from.  This particular recipe came from Nova.  I believe that is likely a woman she was in church group with.  The first one I tried was Strawberry Bread.  It was just as delicious as I thought it would be.

I used a bundt cake pan for my bread.  This tasted fabulous.  It made me remember all the times that I shared with my Aunt Linnie eating her fabulous sweet treats!

I hope you enjoy this recipe.  I am looking forward to trying another one soon!

      Yes, I think they would be fine as long as they are thawed enough to crush.

      Thank you! I think I got the cross at our church, not sure where it came from though originally.

    Is this recipe from the Magic Cookbook? My mom has made the same one (with strawberries or blueberries) for years – we used to give it to the neighbors as Christmas gifts! – and I ran across yours while trying to find ways to make it healthier because it is my favorite. Any thoughts?

      I’m honestly not sure, I have it just on that sheet of paper in the pictures above but there is no source on it other than my aunt’s friend writing it on the piece of paper.
