Strawberry Nut Bread

This delicious quick bread is wonderful as a sandwich, just spread strawberry cream cheese between two slices.

Yield

two 9 x 5-inch loaves (24 servings)

Ingredients

2 (10 ounce) packages frozen sweetened sliced strawberries, thawed
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated (white) sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 eggs
1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
1 teaspoon red food coloring
1 1/4 cups chopped pecans
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with Pan Release or cooking spray.

Drain strawberries, reserving 1/2 cup juice. Set berries and juice aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Combine eggs, oil, strawberries and food coloring if desired; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Stir in pecans. Pour into prepared loaf pans.

Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to a wire cooling rack.

In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and reserved strawberry juice until fluffy; refrigerate. Serve with the bread.
