Mary's Strawberry Bread
My friend Mary created this recipe. It calls for frozen berries,
but I bet fresh berries would be good in it too, especially since strawberry
season is about to start, at least here in Virginia.
3 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. cinnamon
2 c. sugar
3 beaten eggs
1 c. vegetable oil
(2) 10 oz. packages of thawed (frozen) strawberries
1 c. chopped pecans (optional)
1) Chop strawberries well so that there are no large pieces. Large chunks
of berry will leave holes in the bread.

4) Add together the dry and wet ingredients, and mix well. Pour into
two greased and floured loaf pans (9x5x3). Bake at 350 degrees for approximately
