Strawberry Bread

This is a great change from traditional banana nut bread.

3 c. flour
2 c. sugar
1 t. baking soda
4 eggs, well-beaten
1 t. salt
2 (10 oz) packages strawberries
1 1/2 t. ground cinnamon
1 c. chopped pecans (or any other nuts)
1 1/4 c. vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together baking soda, flour, salt, cinnamon and sugar. Place into a large bowl and make a well in the center. Place strawberries with juice, eggs, oil and pecans in the well. Stir until all ingredients are moistened. Pour into 2 loaf pans sprayed with cooking spray. Bake in 350 degree oven for 60-70 minutes, testing after 60 minutes. Cool in pans 30 minutes before turning onto cooling rack. Bread freezes well.

TIP OF THE DAY: When you make breads like this one that are pretty hearty, double the batch and freeze them for another day.
