From the kitchen of Julie K. - Olympia, Washington
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil*
2 cups fresh strawberries or
16 ounces frozen strawberries, thawed
1 1/4 cups chopped walnuts
In large bowl, combine first five ingredients. Add eggs and vegetable oil and mix well. Stir in strawberries and nuts until evenly distributed. (You can mash the strawberries first for a more even consistency or leave them whole for large pieces in the finished bread.)
Grease and flour two 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pans. Divide batter between pans and bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour. Cool in pan 10 minutes before turning out on wire rack. Cool completely before slicing.
Makes two loaves.
* If you feel that there is too much oil in this, you can use the Baker's Secret oil substitute. It works just as well as the oil without the added fat.
