Sempoi K Batiah's Strawberry Bread

A friend made this bread sometime ago yet the taste still lingers in my mouth. Though she got it from the internet, but since she made it, I attribute the deliciousness to her ... :)

2 cups of fresh strawberries
3 1/8 cups of all purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs beaten
1 1/4 cups chopped pecan or any other nuts

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F(175C). Butter and flour loaf pan but she used baking paper instead.
- Slice strawberries and place in medium sized bowl. Sprinkle lightly with sugar, set aside.
- Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and baking soda in a large bowl: mix well.
- Mix oil and eggs into strawberries.
- Add strawberry mixture to flour mixture, mixing until dry ingredients are just moistened.
- Stir in pecan or nuts.
- Pour batter into loaf pan.
- Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until tester inserted comes out clean.
- Let cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes.
- Turn loaf out, and cool completely.

* it was great with a cup of hot chocolate / mocha ... :)

Happy trying ... :)
