Sweet, fruity, and delish Strawberry Bread is the perfect breakfast, snack or dessert. This quick bread recipe is packed full of fresh strawberries and topped with a sweet glaze.
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 cup sugar
- 3 large eggs beaten
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 2 cups fresh strawberries chopped*
Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with non-stick spray. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Sprinkle sugar over strawberries and allow to sit an hour or 2. (I like to leave the strawberries in chunks, but you can chop as small as you like.) This will bring out the juice in the strawberries. In a large bowl, combine first four ingredients. In a seperate bowl, whisk eggs and oil. Add eggs and oil to dry ingredients; stir lightly until just combined. Add strawberries and juice. (You should have about 1 cup of juice. If you do not have that much juice, you may need to add milk so that the batter is not too dry/thick.) Divide mixture into 2 loaf pan and bake 45 to 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. I used 2 large pans, if you're pans are small you may need to cook longer. Remove bread from oven and cool for 5 - 10 minutes before inverting on serving dish.
- You can also add pecans or coconut to the recipe for variation.
