Sweet Strawberry Bread

I saw this recipe for strawberry bread on the sisters cafe blog, and think it sounds like such a fun thing to have at a brunch, baby shower, etc.

3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
4 eggs
1 c. canola oil
2 c. fresh strawberries, cut small

Mix flour, soda, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Add eggs, sugar, oil. Mix until moist, carefully add strawberries. Batter will be thick. Spoon into greased and floured loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Cool in pans 10 minutes then remove. I made 2 small bread loaves, but I think you could probably make 1 regular sized bread loaf with this amount of batter. (It really is more of a batter consistency than a bread dough. It reminded me of making banana bread.)

Either my oven cooks really hot or their cooktime is a little off, because I took mine out at 45 minutes and feel like it was over cooked. I think I'll take mine out at 30 minutes next time.

We just bought a new house a month ago and I'm trying to get used to new ovens. These definitely cook differently than my old one.
