Strawberry Bread

Makes 2 loaves

3 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cup vegetable oil
10 oz. frozen sweetened strawberries -thawed (do not drain!)
3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans if desired

Beat eggs in large bowl. Add sugar and oil. Mix well. Stir in strawberries and dry ingredients. Add nuts if using. Grease 2 large loaf pans well. Pour half of the batter into each pan. Bake at 350* for 1 hour.

Cool in pans on wire rack for 10 minutes and then loosen bread from sides of pan with a table knife. Turn out onto wire racks and let cool completely.

My thoughts: This is an amazing flavor and textured quick bread. I like to serve it for breakfast, brunch, and snacks. This is one of my daughter's favorite quick breads.

Serve it with: Make a cream cheese spread with cream cheese and powdered sugar. Add just a touch of vanilla.
