For the Bread

  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or almond extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups strawberries diced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

For the Glaze

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • cup strawberries finely diced
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract or almond extract
  • 4 tablespoons heavy cream or milk


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a medium bowl stir together the sugar, milk, oil, egg, and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Pour the bread batter into a greased 9"x5" bread pan.
  • 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.
  • Allow the bread to cool for 10 minutes, then remove the bread to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • To make the glaze, combine the powdered sugar, melted butter, diced strawberries, milk and extract in a small bowl. Mix until it is smooth.
  • Once the bread is cool, spread the glaze on top of the bread. Slice and serve.
    Pro Tip: Make sure to let cool fully before glazing.
    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.
