Strawberry Bread

Sorry, banana breadstrawberry bread has pretty much taken over my life lately! I’m obsessed with this strawberry quick bread recipe. It’s so soft, dense, moist, and has the best fruity flavor from real strawberries! With all of that being said… I think my very favorite part might just be the sweet, pink strawberry glaze that goes all across the top of the bread.

The beauty of breads like this is that you can enjoy it for breakfast, as a midday snack, or as a late night dessert! There’s never a bad time to enjoy a slice of strawberry bread. It’s the perfect treat year round too, but especially during the summertime when the berries are at their freshest. They’re so juicy, sweet, and perfect for mixing into this quick bread batter.

And when I say this recipe is easy, I mean that. You just have to toss everything into a bowl to create the batter, pour it into a loaf pan, bake, glaze, and dig in. It really could not be more simple! This is a recipe that even your littlest kiddos can help out with. Oh, and you should also know that the small this has while it bakes it better than any candle could ever try to recreate!

How to Make Strawberry Bread

Take a sneak peek at how easy this quick strawberry bread recipe is! For more details about the entire step by step process, just scroll down to the recipe card at the bottom of the page.

  1. Mix the wet ingredients. Beat the sugar and butter together with an electric mixer until fluffy. Then, beat in the banana, milk, yogurt and eggs until combined.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients. Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.
  3. Make the bread batter. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and beat just until blended. Try not to over-mix.
  4. Bake. Pour the batter into a loaf pan and bake at 350°F for about 1 hour.
  5. Cool and glaze. Once the bread has cooled off completely on a wire rack, glaze it! Make the glaze by simply combining strawberry puree, powdered sugar and heavy cream in a bowl.

Tips for the Best Strawberry Bread

Get the very best glazed strawberry bread with these easy tips and tricks:

  • Check your baking soda – Did you know that baking soda is only potent within 6 months after opening the container? After that, it’s expired and doesn’t work as well.
  • Spoon the flour – Don’t dig your measuring cup into the bag of flour. Instead, spoon the flour into the cup. That’s how you avoid packed flour.
  • Don’t over-mix the batter – Once the batter is smooth, you’re good to go! If you mix it too much, you could ruin the texture of the bread.

How to Store and Freeze Strawberry Bread

Keep this bread either in slices or as a whole loaf in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

You can also choose to freeze the bread if you wish! Just freeze it without the glaze in an airtight container for up to 3 months. I recommend freezing individual slices that are separated by a small square of parchment paper. That way, you can grab a slice from the freezer and let it defrost quickly on your countertop. A whole loaf will take much longer to warm back up.
