Strawberry Bread

I made this recipe because we had family in town staying with us.  I needed something for breakfast that I could prepare the day before. I had bookmarked this recipe a week ago from Cookbook Jungle.   This was the prefect recipe and it left the house smelling delicious. It instantly became a new favorite recipe of mine.  I loved this bread.  It was a hit with the whole family. I will definitely be making this recipe over and over again.  The only change I made was adding some brown sugar to the top of the bread before baking.  It made the crust nice & sweet!

3 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 & 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, beaten
1 & 1/4 cup veg. oil (You can lighten it by using 1 c. applesauce and only 1/4 c. oil)
2 cups fresh chopped strawberries
1 cup chopped walnuts

In large bowl, combine first 5 ingredients. Add egg and oil; mix well.
Stir in berries and nuts until evenly distributed - batter will be
thick. Grease & flour two 9" loaf pans and divide batter evenly into
each. Bake at 350 approx. 1 hour. Cool in pans 10 min. Invert onto
wire rack to cool completely.
