 Strawberry Bread

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour 2 - 8 x 4 inch loaf pans.  Combine sugar and oil until well mixed.  Add eggs, one at a time, incorporating until well blended.  Mix in flour, baking soda, and salt.  Gently mix in partially thawed and chopped strawberries and walnuts.  Divide batter into two greased loaf pans.  Bake for 1 hour, or until bread tests done.  Slice bread into twelve slice, and then slice each in half, yielding 24 half slices.  Optional serving method: Soften  8 oz. cream cheese, divide into two bowls, and tint pink and green with food coloring.  Top each piece of strawberry bread with a petite rosebud.

I love strawberries so much that they usually just get eaten plain. I really haven't thought to make anything with them, but this does sound delicious and looks good too.

The strawberry bread looks delicious, and it won't be long until it can be made with locally grown strawberries. I can hardly wait!

I recently made strawberry bread but wouldn't have thought of the rose accent. What a great touch!
