Welcome to the most popular new strawberry recipe in my house, this easy glazed strawberry bread!
We are smack in the middle of strawberry season and we are buying/picking/eating strawberries like it’s our job.
Which meant I had to leave the following stern warning on my kitchen counter while the aroma of strawberry bread with fresh strawberries wafted through the house.
And speaking of strawberries, if you want my best tips on buying, storing and prepping those gorgeous local berries, here they are for you!
Back at this strawberry bread: this is a quick bread, meaning that there is no yeast involved. I also used a pretty conservative amount of sugar to let the sweetness of the chopped strawberries shine through.
And it would be just fine as is, but I can’t help overdoing things and so I added a quick light glaze. Hey, I gotta be me.
Glazed or plain, I promise this is the best strawberry bread recipe of your dreams. Get your hands on some fresh strawberries and let’s make it!
Here are The Ingredients You Need for Glazed Strawberry bread!
- Baking Powder
- Powdered Sugar
Here’s how to make glazed strawberry bread!
STEP 1: Preheat your oven to 350°F and spray a 9 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
STEP 2: Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and mix until it is nice and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the egg and mix until it is fully combined with the butter.
STEP 3: Next, stir together 2 cups of flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder and ½ teaspoon of salt with a whisk so everything is fully combined.
STEP 4: Mix 1 teaspoon of vanilla with a half cup of milk, and then add the flour mixture and the milk mixture to the butter mixture in a few stages, starting and ending with the flour mixture.
STEP 5: Gently mix the chopped strawberries with two tablespoons of flour, and then fold them into the batter, trying your best to distribute the strawberries evenly through the batter.
STEP 6: Scrape the batter into the loaf pan, smooth out the top, and then pop it in the over for 45 minutes or until a toothpick stuck into the center comes out clean.Let it cool for ten minutes or so in the pan, and then transfer to a cooling rack.
STEP 7: If you are adding the glaze, let the bread cool down fully, then mix together the powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 2 tablespoons of milk. I like to do this in a measuring cup, because you are then going to pour it all over the top of the bread, letting some of the glaze drip down the sides. Give the glaze about 15 minutes to set and then serve it up!
More Tips for making glazed strawberry bread!
If you are coming across this recipe in the middle of the winter, I totally understand why you might want to make it NOW. And while fresh strawberries are best, you can use frozen ones if you need to…just make sure they are fully thawed and patted dry.
Giving the berries a light flour coating will help them “stick” to the dough…meaning that they won’t all sink to the bottom. You’ll get even strawberry distribution!
In my house, about an hour. But if you manage to hang onto it for longer, it will be good for two to three days – wrap it in plastic wrap and pop it in the fridge.
Oh, and while this easy strawberry bread recipe is perfect with a cup of tea, I can tell you from experience that if you pop some vanilla ice cream on the top of a slice, it’s a fantabulous summer dessert.
