Glazed Strawberry Sweet Bread

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 55 minutes


  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 Lg. egg
  • 2 tsp. vanilla or almond extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour or freshly milled soft white wheat flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups fresh diced strawberries
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour

Strawberry Glaze

  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. melted butter
  • 1-2 Tbsp. heavy cream (more if needed)
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla or almond extract
  • 1/4-1/3 cup finely diced strawberries


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, whisk the sugar, milk, oil, egg and vanilla together until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just incorporated.

  2. In a small bowl, toss the strawberries in the 2 tablespoons of flour to coat them. Gently, fold the floured strawberries into the batter.

  3. Pour the bread batter into a greased 9"x5" bread pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow the bread to cool for 10 minutes, then remove the bread to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Make The Glaze (optional)

  1. Whisk the powdered sugar, melted butter, heavy cream, diced strawberries and extract in a small bowl. Whisk until it's smooth.

  2. Pour over strawberry bread once it's completely cooled. Slice and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • By tossing the diced strawberries in flour before mixing them into the batter, you're preventing the strawberries from falling to the bottom if the loaf while it's baking. 
  • The glaze is optional. This bread is delicious just as it is. Because the glaze is very sweet, it is more like a dessert. For more of a breakfast loaf, skip the glaze.
