Original recipe came with my mom from Poland in 1912. I only added the allspice and walnuts to the recipe. Recipe won 3 Blue ribbons at the Los Angeles County Fair in 1963-67.

This is pretty good! I used the full amount of shortening and omitted the raisins as well. The bread is definitely quite moist and has a great texture, however, I was a little disappointed by the faint strawberry flavor. But even considering that, I'll likely be making it again, perhaps with a 1/4 cup more strawberries. Thanks!
