Berry Bread

Years ago I saw a recipe in the newspaper for a Strawberry Bread. I have made it several times over the years and have tweaked it so much it is mine now. I made it this time with strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, but I have made it with only strawberries and with only raspberries. It is great any way you make it, with any mix of berries. The original recipe called for the frozen berries in their juice. I haven't seen those little boxes of berries for years. This is better, with less sugar.

I hope y'all enjoy!

NOTE: Don't substitute butter for the oil. I love the taste of butter, but the oil keeps this bread very moist. I cut 1/2 cup of oil from the original recipe.
