Eating a slice of strawberry bread is like eating a slice of spring. Made with mashed fresh strawberries, this bread is not only delicious but it’s also easy to make. Make this super delicious bread when strawberries are in season for an even fresher strawberry flavor.

Perfect Springtime Bread

If you’re looking for the perfect springtime or early summertime bread, then don’t look any further. This bread is made with freshly picked strawberries that have been hulled and mashed. The taste of fresh strawberries really shines through in this bread. An easy glaze is made with powdered sugar, milk, vanilla extract and pink gel food coloring.  Another big plus, this recipe makes two 8 x 4-inch loaves of bread.

Made With

This bread is made with fresh picked strawberries from Berryland. Pick some extra berries and freeze some for later when you get the urge to make this bread again. If you don’t have time to pick your own strawberries, don’t worry! Driscolls Strawberries are a great substitute. You can find Driscoll’s strawberries at most grocery stores. If you can’t find Driscoll’s use whatever kind of strawberries your store offers.

What’s A Quick Bread?

Quick breads are so called because they require no kneading and use baking soda, baking powder or eggs to leaven the bread. As the name implies, quick breads are relatively quick to make. Recipes for quick breads call for a handful of ingredients and usually ingredients most of us have on hand. Flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, eggs and a ‘wet’ ingredient. Milk, cream applesauce and mashed bananas are most often used.

Recipe Note:

To add an extra layer strawberry flavor to this already tasty bread, use strawberry extract. Replace the vanilla extract used in the bread and glaze recipes with strawberry extract. It will add extra flavor with little to no effort. We like to use extracts from Watkins.  Watkins is located in Plainview MN. They have been making Watkins products at the same factory for over one hundred years.

  • Add a drop of beet juice* for a pink hue in your sugar without food dye! One drop will give color and even several drops (color: fucshia!) will not change the taste.

    *from a raw red beet – a bit grated and pressed through a sieve
