Strawberry Bread

We have been making this yummy Strawberry Bread for years.  It is definitely a favorite.  I use to make it without the glaze on top but my mom starting mixing some of the reserved strawberry juice with powdered sugar and pouring it over the top.  I love this addition - the sweet crunchy top is extra yummy!

Strawberry Bread

3 cups flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
4 well beaten eggs
1 1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
1/2 tsp red food coloring
*2 (10 oz) pkg of frozen strawberries, chopped (reserve 1/2 cup juice
3/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.  Spray and grease two loaf pans.  Mix all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in dry ingredients; add eggs, nuts, oil, food color and chopped strawberries.  Mix all together except the reserved 1/2 cup juice.  Pour into the two prepared loaf pans.  Bake at 350 for 50 - 60 minutes - or until tester comes out clean.  Run a knife around edge of pan and invert onto a platter. While cooling, mix some or all of the reserved juice with powdered sugar to achieve a glaze-like texture.  Spoon over the warm bread.  Enjoy!

*I could only find a 15 oz container of strawberries - turned out great!
