You’re going to love this Glazed Strawberry Bread with its perfectly soft texture and that sweet strawberry glaze. We’re using simple ingredients and making a quick bread, which does not have to rise. Real strawberries in both the bread and the glaze!
Strawberry Bread is an easy quick bread recipe, which means you do not have to let it rise.
Quick Breads are made with baking powder or baking soda instead of yeast so they don’t have to rise or rest before baking.
We love the flavor of this Strawberry Bread, especially when you add the luscious strawberry glaze to the top.

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.
Be careful not to over-mix the bread batter or your bread will not turn out as tender as it can be.
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
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.

If your strawberries are juicy, the glaze should come together as written without any milk. However, if your glaze is too thick try adding 1-2 tablespoons of milk until it makes a glaze.
