Strawberry season is the best time of year in my opinion. There is absolutely nothing better than biting into a juicy, deep red strawberry. This strawberry bread is the perfect way to use some of those delectable, fresh picked strawberries. The moist bread is topped with a simple glaze and will be the perfect baked treat for your breakfast or snack table.

We love fresh strawberries around here as you can discover from all the delicious strawberry recipes we have. Try our strawberry cobbler, strawberry lemon blondies, chocolate covered strawberry brownies and strawberry spinach salad.

For the Bread

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract or almond extract

Lemon: Strawberry recipes always pair well with the tangy flavor of lemon. Add a bit of lemon juice or lemon zest to your bread batter for a nice tart addition.

HOW TO MAKE THIS STRAWBERRY BREAD RECIPE

STEP ONE In a medium bowl stir together the sugar, ½ cup of milk, oil, egg, and vanilla extract.

STEP TWO: In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. 

STEP THREE: Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined.

STEP FOUR: In a small bowl, toss together the strawberries and the 2 tablespoons of flour to coat the strawberries.

PRO TIP: Coating the strawberries in flour will help keep them suspended in the bread while baking, so you will have a nice distribution throughout.

STEP FIVE: Fold the floured strawberries gently into the batter.

PRO TIP: Be very gentle folding in the strawberries to minimize streaking in the bread or crushing the berries.

STEP SIX: Pour the bread batter into a greased 9×5-inch loaf pan. 

STEP SEVEN: Bake at 350°F for 50 to 55 minutes on the middle rack of your oven. A toothpick inserted in the center of the bread should come out clean. 

STEP EIGHT: Allow the bread to cool for 10 minutes in the bread pan, then remove the bread to a wire rack to cool completely.

PRO TIP: Make sure to let cool fully before glazing.

STEP NINE: To make the simple strawberry glaze combine the powdered sugar, melted butter, diced strawberries, milk, and extract in a small bowl. Mix until it is smooth.

STEP TEN: Once the bread is cool, spread the glaze on top of the bread. Slice and serve.

PRO TIP: Place bread on a wire rack before pouring the glaze on top so that any excess glaze will run through the rack rather than leaving a puddle around your bread.

HOW TO SERVE

This delicious bread is the perfect treat for breakfast or a snack. Serve it however you prefer your quick breads. Warm it a bit in the microwave or eat cold. You can also add a little bit of butter if you’d like.

Treat yourself to an afternoon snack of strawberry bread and an iced caramel macchiato or our iced tea, raspberry iced tea, sweet peach iced tea, or our southern strawberry sweet tea on the side.
