Strawberry Bread
Contributed by Diane Spangenberg

 3 cups plain flour 
 4 eggs, beaten 
 1 tsp. salt  
 1 tsp. soda 
 2 TBS ground cinnamon
 2 cups sugar [this can actually be reduced to 1c due to the applesauce]
 1 pkg. strawberry Jell-O 
 1 1/4 cups canola oil [I use 1/4c oil; 3/4c applesauce]
 2 cups frozen strawberries 
 1 cup chopped pecans 
 powdered sugar  
 
Sift together all dry ingredients.  Beat eggs & add strawberries, oil, &
pecans.  Add the dry ingredients & mix with a spoon. Pour into 2 greased &
floured loaf pans. Bake at 350 for 50 to 55 minutes. Cool before removing
from pan. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top of loaves. 
 
Sugar in baked recipes can generally be easily reduced by 1/3-1/2 the amount
without a disaster!  Recipe often contain MUCH moresugar than is really needed.
Also, using fruit substitutes for the fats, such as applesauce adds natural 
and healthier sweetness.
