3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1Tbsp. cinnamon (I use half that amount)
2 cups sugar (I use 1 cup granulated and 1 cup brown sugar)
1 1/4 cups vegetable oil (I use melted butter or light olive oil)
2 cups thawed, sliced frozen strawberries
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and sugar in a large bowl. Combine eggs, oil strawberries and pecans in another bowl. Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients and stir just until all ingredients are moistened. Spoon batter into 2 well greased 9x5x3 inch loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees F for 60 to 70 minutes. Cool in pans 5 minutes and remove to wire rack to cool.
I use this bread to make delicious sandwiches. I make smaller loaves than what is called for in the recipe and slice the loaves to create dainty sandwiches. I use creamed cheese mixed with strawberry jam or jelly for the filling. You may add extra granulated sugar to taste if you want the sandwiches to be sweet treats. If you use nuts in the bread be sure to chop the nuts finer than usual to aid in having cleaner slices that aren't distorted by cutting into nuts. Don't pulverize them however as being able to bite into pecan bits is more desirable.
