Strawberry Bread! Yummy!

Okay, I am proud of this one. Yesterday I made a strawberry bread that I wasn't happy with. For anyone who's had it, it tasted like Amish Friendship Bread. Very good- but not very strawberry flavored, and it had way too much oil in it for me to feel good about eating it. So I tweaked the recipe quite a bit, and now I have a lovely strawberry bread. It is quite good. I think it would be awesome to serve it along with banana bread at a pot luck or party. The flavors would contrast nicely. I'm looking forward to eating this bread up over the next few days. Warning though. This bread does take about 4 cups of sliced strawberries- and at least 2 cups of that needs to be fresh- 4 cups fresh would be even better. Here it is.
