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
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.
