Glazed Strawberry Bread

Yum
"I took my Mom's strawberry bread recipe and added a delicious strawberry glaze to make it even more scrumptious.  This bread makes a delicious breakfast, dessert or snack and takes advantage of the sweetest part of Summer-Strawberries!"  
 
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup oil (vegetable, canola)
2 cups strawberries, mashed
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, if desired
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour two loaf pans or spray with non-stick cooking spray + flour.  Mix together all ingredients and divide batter evenly into loaf pans.  Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.  Remove from the oven and allow to cool in pans for about 10 minutes.  Remove from pans and allow to continue cooling on cooling racks until completely cooled.  Drizzle with Strawberry Glaze (recipe follows).
 
Strawberry Glaze
1/2 cup strawberry jam
2 Tablespoons butter
1 cup powdered sugar
 
In a saucepan, melt together jam and butter.  Remove from the heat and whisk in powdered sugar until smooth.  Set aside.  Drizzle on completely cooled loaves of bread.  ENJOY!
