Strawberry-Nut Bread

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1¼ cups vegetable oil
  • 2 cups strawberries, sliced (fresh or frozen)
  • 1½ cups pecans, chopped

Combine dry ingredients. Add eggs, oil, strawberries, and pecans. Stir just until all ingredients are moistened. Spoon batter into two well-greased loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 60-70 minutes until cake tests done. Cool in pans 5 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool completely. Freezes well.
