I got this receipe from "The Texas Experience" cookbook. I've tweaked it to my personal preferences and I'm very pleased with the results. It's a very tender bread with a subtle hint of strawberry flavor. I used Imitation Strawberry Extract because that's all I could find locally. If you try it please let me know if you're pleased with the results also.

This is a very nice quick bread. It is a good way to use up a very large jar of strawberry preserves. It made two nice size loaves of bread. The pecans added a great flavor and texture to the bread.

I decided to make this really late and wasn't able to get out to buy strawberry extract so I substituted vanilla and it was great! This recipe is definitely a keeper!
