  • For the Bread:
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1/2 cup oil
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or almond extract
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder (see notes)
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 2 cups diced strawberries
    • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • For the Glaze:
    • 2 cups powdered sugar
    • 2 tablespoons melted butter
    • 1/3 cup finely diced strawberries
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or almond extract
    • 1-2 tablespoons heavy cream or milk (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. 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.
  3. In a small bowl, toss together the strawberries and the 2 tablespoons of flour to coat the strawberries. Fold the floured strawberries gently into the batter.
  4. Pour the bread batter into a greased 9″x5″ bread pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes. 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.
  5. To make the glaze, combine the powdered sugar, melted butter, diced strawberries, and extract in a small bowl. Mix until it is smooth.
  6. Once the bread is cool, spread the glaze on top of the bread. Slice and serve.

Recipe Tips

  • Be sure to coat the diced strawberries with flour before adding them to the batter. This helps prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the bread while baking.
  • If you prefer a thicker glaze, add more powdered sugar. For a thinner glaze, add a bit more milk or cream.

Enjoy this delightful strawberry bread as a wonderful addition to your breakfast or as a sweet treat for any time of the day.
