    Gently fold in the chopped nuts and strawberries. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and bake about 1 hour, or until bread is golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Place on wire rack to cool and then remove pan. Serve warm or at room temperature. This bread can be frozen.

    I usually slice the bread and add maserated strawberries and top it on the slice and add whipped cream. Sometimes I layer my trifle bowl with sliced bread, strawberries and whipped cream.
