I think I got this recipe from Facebook? Someone shared it and I took a screen shot. Two days later I got a bag of the juiciest, ripest strawberries from cousin Hollis (Thank you, Hollis!). It was fate.
Look at that!
It isn’t a super sweet bread. It is big on the strawberry flavor.
And, the glaze is amazing. I think you could double the glaze.
Alright…here we go!
For the Bread:
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla
In another bowl mix:
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
Now add those two bowls together and mix, but don’t over mix.
Cut up 2 cups of strawberries and coat in 2 T. of flour and add that to the batter.
Pour the batter into a greased 9 x 5 bread loaf pan.
Bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Let bread cool for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and let cool completely.
2 cups powdered sugar
2 T. butter
1/3 cup finely diced strawberries
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1-2 T. heavy cream or milk (depends on the consistency you prefer)
Spread the glaze on top of the loaf and slice.
Let me know if you try it!
