1-1/2 Cups fresh strawberries, sliced (about 1 pint with a few left over

1 cup granulated sugar, divided

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

2 eggs

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)

Preheat over to 350. Lightly grease and flour a standard glass loaf pan (8x5"). Rinse, core and slice the strawberries, place in a small bowl and sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar. In a large mixing bowl, blend together the remaining sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs until foamy, then add the vanilla extract and melted butter. Make sure the melted butter isn't too hot -- just barely melted. Stir in the strawberries. Combine the two mixtures, blending until the dry ingredients are moistened. Scrape the batter into the pan and bake for 60-70 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove the pan from the oven and cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes before removing the bread from the pan.

Yield: 1 loaf
