Something else. I made a few minor changes. - reduced sugar to 1 cup - raw sugar rather than white sugar - 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup apple sauce instead of 1 1/4 cup oil - 3 tsp cinnamon instead of a Tbsp (though a Tbsp would have been OK) - I did puree almost all the strawberries with the oil and apple sauce, then blended in the beaten eggs. - Choc chips (about 1 cup) replaced the pecans as the younger ones don't like nuts in food. - I also baked 24 muffins (adjusting cooking time) and one (10cm x 20 cm pan) loaf. Muffins are better for lunch boxes *** A few days later I made this again, and I completely forgot to add the eggs, it's been accepted as a new recipe which you can view here:

Altered ingredient amounts. Substituted just under a cup of choc chips for the pecans

Fun way to use strawberries, and to add variety to the lunchbox! It would get a full 5 stars if I hadn't had to play with the sugar and oil amounts, I find my version pretty fantastic (see tweaks). Even the pickier members of this family (the children) enjoyed this one! This is a very quick recipe to make.

Call me bad but I used chocolate chips instead of nuts...just because strawberries and chocolate are meant to go together- and took it a baby shower morning tea at work where no-one complained:-)

My family are big strawberry fans so this was another great way to eat strawberries. My hunch is it could definitely tolerate more strawberries. Would love to hear if someone has done that

Lovely and I think it will become a family favourite even though this is the first one I've made. It's bordering being on too sweet- I guess it depends how sweet your strawbs are in the first place. So, for me that makes it perfect for a dessert which is how we ate it.
