Loved this bread, it turned out so moist and fluffy inside, golden and brown crust outside. I used fresh strawberries, so I added a few tablespoons of buttermilk to get the dough together at the end, but if you are using frozen ones, the liquid from thawed berries will be enough. And strawberries gave the bread fruity and fresh taste. I also used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour, used walnuts instead of pecans. Cinnamon added the warm flavor, and it is a very delicious bread recipe!
