  2. Slice strawberries and place in medium-sized bowl. Sprinkle lightly with sugar, and set aside while preparing batter.
  3. 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. Divide batter into pans.

This was absolutely fantastic! My husband ended up with a whole flat of strawberries from a local farm, so I was really looking for something different to use them in. This was the perfect use for them. Like some of the other reviewers, I added more strawberries (4 cups: 2-pureed and 2 sliced), cut the oil down to 3/4 cup, and only used 1.5 cups sugar since my berries were fairly ripe. I also added 1 tsp vanilla. This had a wonderful texture and flavour. I will definitely make it again!

Thanks SO much to all the previous reviewers who provided such great tips. This turned out wonderfully! I halved the recipe to make one loaf - used 1/4 c olive oil, 1 1/2 c strawberries (I sprinkled them with sugar, then smooshed them up with my fingers), 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 1 tbsp vanilla extract. It was perfectly cooked after 45 mins. The consistency was light, the sweetness spot-on, and the strawberry flavor was just right also. I served this warm with a little fat-free Cool Whip and a sliced strawberry garnish. Thank you, Ellen, for boosting my baking confidence!!

I needed to use up some strawberries and decided to give this recipe a try. It was easy to make and it turned out great! After reading the reviews, I was concerned that I didn't have enough strawberries so I added some frozen blueberries. I also cut back on the cinnamon and added a little vanilla. My family was pleased with the results. I would definitely make this again. I was feeling lazy about washing two loaf pans so I baked it in a bundt pan. It filled the pan perfectly and would look nice for company or to take to a brunch or office party.
