😋 Fresh Ingredients for the Best Taste

To achieve the best taste in glazed strawberry bread, it is crucial to use fresh ingredients.

Start with ripe, juicy strawberries that are in season for the most flavorful bread.

When it comes to flour, opt for high-quality all-purpose flour to create a tender, fluffy texture that complements the juicy strawberries.

By using fresh, high-quality ingredients, you’ll be able to create an irresistible glazed strawberry bread that will be sure to impress anyone who tries it.

🌟 How to Make Perfect Glaze

When it comes to baking glazed strawberry bread, the glaze is just as important as the bread itself.

A perfectly balanced glaze can take your bread from good to irresistible.

To achieve this, start with powdered sugar and gradually add fresh strawberries and vanilla extract until the glaze is smooth and lump-free while also meeting your desired level of sweetness.

Whisking the glaze will help create the best results.

If your strawberries are juicy, you shouldn’t need to add any extra liquid to the glaze.

But if you’re having trouble getting the glaze to come together, feel free to add some milk, water, or even lemon juice to smooth things out.

🔑 Key to Success #1 – Stir Only Until Combined

The Strawberry Quick Bread is a simple mixture of sugar, eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla for the wet ingredients.

Next, we’re adding salt, baking powder, and all-purpose flour for the dry ingredients.

Stir the ingredients together only until the mixture is fully combined.

Stirring may seem like an easy task, but it can make all the difference in the texture and overall success of your glazed strawberry bread.

Overmixing can lead to tough, dry bread that no one wants to eat.

To avoid this, stir only until combined – when the dry ingredients are just moistened and there are still small pockets of flour visible.

This will ensure a tender, fluffy texture that melts in your mouth.

You can stir the entire bread recipe and the glaze with just a spoon or a spatula.

An electric mixer would be overkill for this simple and easy bread recipe.

🔑 Key to Success #2 – Flour the Strawberries

Stirring the batter may be the most critical step in creating the perfect glazed strawberry bread, but it’s not the only one.

Flouring the strawberries is equally important for achieving a light, airy texture and an even distribution of the sweet, fruity flavor.

By coating the strawberries in flour before adding them to the batter, you’ll keep them suspended and prevent them from sinking to the bottom.

This small but mighty step can make a big difference in the final outcome of your bread.

With these two tips – careful stirring and flouring the strawberries – you’re well on your way to making a mouth-watering masterpiece.

We’re using fresh strawberries in our Strawberry Bread, but you can use frozen strawberries just as easily.

If you are using frozen strawberries, be sure to allow them to thaw before finely dicing them.

Chop the strawberries into small pieces so that it will be easier to distribute them throughout the bread loaf.

To prevent the strawberries from sinking down to the bottom of the bread loaf, we’re going to flour them.

Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of flour over the diced strawberries then gently stir or toss them together.

Finally, gently fold the floured strawberries into the bread dough.

🔑 Key to Success #3 – Add Glaze When Cool

I know it’s hard to wait, but it’s best to add the luscious strawberry glaze when the bread is completely cool.

The strawberry glaze is made from diced strawberries, powdered sugar, melted butter, and a little vanilla.

Dice the strawberries small then add in the butter and vanilla.

Finally, stir in the powdered sugar.

Keep stirring until the glaze comes together.

If your strawberries are juicy, you will not need to add any additional liquids.

You can add a tablespoon or two of milk or cream if your glaze is too thick.

Finally, be sure to properly measure your ingredients and follow the recipe closely to ensure the best results.

Made this recipe like it was written. It turned out perfect. Girlfriend is diabetic so she doesn't need the glaze but I'm not. Wink wink nudge nudge. I'm gonna keep this recipe and make it on special occasions. Thanks for the recipe.

I’m so glad you liked the recipe! We love this strawberry bread. And the glaze is soooooo good!

I made this this afternoon! I made 4 small loaves and they turned out perfect. The glaze was like but a little milk…perfection

You mention lemon juice in the write up but then not in the directions or ingredient list. Do you use in the glaze? If so, how much?


Wednesday 28th of June 2023

I don’t put lemon juice in the glaze. As long as my strawberries are juicy, I don’t put any liquid in the glaze other than what is in the strawberries. In the write up, I was trying to say that you could use a little lemon juice if you wanted a tangy flavor in the glaze. But I like more of a sweet strawberry glaze.

I made 5 mini loaves. (bake time: 40minutes). Very tasty! Giving as small thinking of you gifts.

I’ve made lots of bread recipes and had a bunch of strawberries about to go bad so I wanted to give this a try. I always make changes so my apologies to the creator the recipe is perfect as is but this what I do differently. I cut the baking powder in half because it makes it less dense in my opinion. I add an extra egg. I added 3/4 cup of chocolate chips. Now this batter went to the top of one loaf pan which is perfect for most but I like to get two smaller loaves because I feel they are perfect portions for this sweet treat. So I divided my batter in two loaf pans. I set my timer for 30 minutes and ended up adding ten more so 40 minutes. It looked amazing! I didn’t have milk for my glaze and it was way to thick even adding a total of 4 tbsp’s so instead of water I reached for my coffee creamer LOL who knew right? After my loaves cooled ten minutes I poked a few holes around it with a toothpick and poured on that glaze and Omgoodness y'all this is freaking amazing. Sorry I made some changes as I’m sure it’s perfect without them. Thank you for sharing.
