I know Iam not blogging regularly.This is because my kid's summer vacation has started and we had been to my BIL's place for vacation.
This time we had great fun camping at a state park.The kids really enjoyed a lot.It was a nice experience for them being without TV,video games for 2 days.
I had made this strawberry bread more than a month ago.It was lying in my draft.Strawberries are aplenty in stores now.So I never miss to grab a box of these antioxidant-rich fruit during errands.

I halved the recipe to make 1 loaf and made some changes according to reviews.
All purpose flour -1 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Sugar - 1 cup-- can be reduced to 3/4 th of a cup
Salt - a pinch
Cinnamon Powder - 1 1/2 tsp --I reduced it to 1/2 tsp
Strawberries - 1 cup chopped-- I added another cup to make it 2 cups.
Vegetable oil - 1/2 cup
Eggs - 2 beaten
Pecan - 1/2 cup chopped optional--I didnt add.
Slice strawberries, and place in medium-sized bowl. Sprinkle lightly with sugar, and set aside while preparing bread mixture.
Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and baking soda in large bowl: mix well. Blend oil and eggs into strawberries. Add strawberry mixture to flour mixture, blending until dry ingredients are just moistened. Stir in pecans.
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until tester inserted comes out clean. Let cool in pans on wire rack for 10 minutes. Turn loaf out and cool completely.
