Strawberry Nut Bread

I like to make sandwiches out of this quick bread by spreading the strawberry cream cheese between two slices.

    Very quick to put together. I had frozen chopped berries in the freezer- so used a bit over 2 cups-and because they were juicy, I added 3 Tbl flour. I baked just a few min. more- this makes lovely loafs- I keep one in the freezer for a needed gift

    This recipe is very similar to one that has been passed through the generations in my family. I opt for walnuts versus pecans, but it is ultimately the primo love and comfort food for me... Enjoy!
