Strawberry Bread

Ingredients for Strawberry 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
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups diced strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Ingredients for 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)

Directions

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″ x 5″ 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.
