Strawberry Apple Bread {leftovers club}

Jul 10

Leftover Club Logo

This is a week of reveals! First, Secret Recipe Club and now the Leftovers Club. And JULY is the one year anniversary of my involvement with the Leftovers Club. It’s been a great year of getting to know AMAZING bloggers all over the country and to receive delicious baked goods each month– what could be better?!?

This month, I was paired with Johanna from Notes from a Messy Kitchen. I was ahead of the game and baked and shipped my goodies weeks before the post day. That never happens (normally, I am quite the procrastinator!), but I think I like shipping early. Johanna already sent me a note, saying she received my package and was able to enjoy it for breakfast this past week!


I sent her Strawberry Apple bread. My mom made this bread (with just strawberries) growing up, and I was obsessed. I was needed some memories of home this past week, so it was perfect thing to make :)

  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 well-beaten egs
  • 1 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup mashed strawberries (or frozen strawberries that are sliced and drained)
  • 2 cups apple (peeled and chopped)
  • Servings: 2 loaves
  • Difficulty: easy


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare bread loaf pans (you will need two-- I only had one, so I also used two mini cake pans) by spraying with cooking spray and set aside.

In a mixer, combine all the dry ingredients. Create a wall in the center of the mixture. Add the strawberries, eggs, apples, and oil. Mix until well combined.

Pour into pans about halfway full or less. Bake for 50-60 minutes until a knife comes out clean. Let loaves cool in the pan and then transfer to wire racks.

    Tell your mom thank you for inspiring this recipe… I loved it! And thank you for sending me not one but TWO loaves! I immediately stuck one in the freezer for a rainy day!

    mmm what a good combination! I actually never have thought to put together strawberries and apples, but this bread sounds fantastic

      I ran out of pans :) so it had to be different shapes…lol

  5. Perfect timing! I have some frozen strawberries on hand and I love cake. So I’m all set. :-)

    That bread sounds like a delicious breakfast. I know what you mean about making recipes from your mom. Always gives me a good feeling when I make something my mom used to make. Thanks so much for letting me be a part of The Leftovers Club. 😉

      Love having you in the Leftovers Club!

    I don’t think I have ever sent one of my leftovers club treats early! And there’s no real explanation why. It would take off so much stress if I would just get it done as soon as the matches are sent!

    This quickbread sounds amazing! I would have loved a slice for breakfast this AM.

      Thanks Joanne- I am normally doing it at the last minute :)

    This sounds so good and a great idea for shipping!! I have a bunch of blueberries I wonder if I could swap them for the strawberries? Great recipe just like it is and I am crazy about strawberries too. Mine I think are finally all gone. I hope you sent me an email about the InLinkz. I am about to go crazy trying to figure it out. I think last months are coming up?? I hope I learn all the dates and codes before long. I try to keep it on my calendar. Love your recipe!!

      You could definitely swap in the blueberries!

  9. I’m so disorganized that I don’t think I’ll be able to send my treats that far ahead! Love this strawberry + apple idea!
