Strawberry Bread Recipe

A friend of mine called last week and told me she had just picked fresh strawberries.  I told her I had a delicious strawberry bread recipe she should try....and as I was reading her the recipe, I decided that I WANTED some strawberry bread myself.  I made some around this time last year after Jake and I went strawberry picking with my Mom and the Joneses (fun day).  SO, I made some tonight after dinner....and now honestly - I want to eat BOTH loaves that just came out of the oven.  I've already had 2 pieces.  I wonder how many is TOO many?!  I mean, I am eating for 2 now, so I think we both deserve 2 pieces each (which would mean I need to eat 4).  :-)  I'll probably just stick with the 2 pieces I already ate, but I figured since I was blogging, I would jot down the recipe incase anyone wants to try it out.  I mean, it's healthy, too - it has strawberries in it!!! ha!

3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
3 tsp cinnamon
1 1/4 cup oil
4 eggs, beaten
3 cups strawberries, sliced

Mix all dry ingredients together.  Make hole in center.  Mix oil, eggs, and strawberries in a small bowl.  Pour into dry ingredients.  Stir well by hand.  Pour into 2 greased and floured loaf pans.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.  Cool.
*delicious served with cream cheese*

Trust me....it's worth going to get some fresh strawberries tomorrow and making this yummy bread!!
