Strawberry Bread

These  are the Teacher Appreciation Gifts that I made for all of the teachers…..enjoy! 

The strawberry stamp is from “Tart and Tangy” and the large tag die is from Sizzix and I used it in the Big Shot….however, it is not something we sell.  I have had it for years, and probably got it at Michael’s.  Have a great Mother’s Day and check back tomorrow for my Mother’s Day cards.  strawberry bread

Strawberry Bread Recipe  (originally from Karie DeFrees)

3 cups plus 3 T.  All-Purpose Flour

1 t. baking soda

1 t. salt

2 cups  sugar

2   10 oz. packages frozen strawberries, thawed

1 cup  vegetable oil

3 eggs, well beaten

1 1/4 cups chopped pecans (optional)

2 T. fresh lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix dry ingredients in a barge mising bowl.  Add beaten eggs and strawberries with liquid.  Stir; add oil, lemon joince, and pecans and mix thoroughly.  Pour batter into 2 greased and floured loaf pans or make 2 smaller loaves.  Back one hour or until tester shows it is done.  Freezes well.

TIP:  I used small individual pans (throw-away type) and was able to get about 8 of them from one batch.  I can’t remember exactly how long, but I did not have to cook them an hour.  Maybe 30-40 minutes.  Also, I hardly ever add the nuts, and the recipe is still great!
