Strawberry Bread

This is the bread I brought to the Parley P. Jensen reunion in Chesterfield.

2 C fresh strawberries
3 1/8 C all-purpose flour
2 C white sugar
1 TB ground cinnamon
1tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 C vegetable oil
4 eggs, beaten
1 1/4 C chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Butter and flour two 9x5 in loaf pans.

Slice strawberries, and place in medium-sized bowl.  Sprinkle lightly wiht sugar, and set aside while preparing bread mixture.

Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and baking soda in large bowl.  Mix well.  Blend oil and eggs  into strawberries.  Add strawberry mixture to flour mixture, blending until dry ingredients are just moistened.  Stir in pecans.  Divide batter into pans.

Bake for 45 - 50 minutes, or until tester instertedcomes out clean.  Let cool in pans on wire rack for 10 minutes.  Turn loaves out, and cool completely.
