Strawberry Almond Bread

I like to share a couple of recipes during Earth Week, so here is a yummy bread. We need to wait another month and a half (maybe two with this chilly spring we have been having) to have strawberries in season in Minnesota, but in other parts of the country they are already in season.
Strawberry Almond Bread
1 C sliced strawberries
1 1/2 C whole wheat flour (I like to use white whole wheat)
1 C raw sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 C vegetable oil
3/4 C sour cream
1/2 tsp. almond extract
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 C sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Toss strawberries lightly in some of the sugar.
Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt & baking soda. Blend.
Add oil, sour cream, extract, eggs to dry mixture and blend.
Fold in strawberries & almonds.
Pour into 9x5 bread pan.
Bake for 1 hour.
