      This is pretty good! I used the full amount of shortening and omitted the raisins as well. The bread is definitely quite moist and has a great texture, however, I was a little disappointed by the faint strawberry flavor. But even considering that, I'll likely be making it again, perhaps with a 1/4 cup more strawberries. Thanks!

      Wow this is almost better than banana bread; sooo moist and delicious! I used butter flavored shortening and omitted the raisins. I lightly mash the strawberries so there where some yummy strawberry chunks to bite into. 10 thumbs up!

      What a great recipe!! The flavor and texture of this strawberry bread is wonderful, especially considering that it's lower in sugar and fat than most others of it's kind! I only made two changes: I used whole wheat pastry flour for the flour, and a butter/light olive oil combination for the melted shortening, and both changes worked out fine. Lori91761--it's easy to see why your mother brought this recipe with her, and why it won 3 blue ribbons!! I'll definitely make this again! Thanks so much for sharing it!!
