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
- ⅓ 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.
