Bread Ingredients

  • 2 cups + 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups strawberries, cut into small pieces

Glaze Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 drop red or pink food coloring
  • 1 cup chopped up strawberries


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a large bowl, mix 2 cups flour, baking soda, and salt together. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk your egg and sugar together. Then, whisk in the buttermilk, vegetable oil, and vanilla.
  • Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir to combine. Do not overmix.
  • Once the mixture is completely smooth, add in the milk. Whisk again to combine.
  • Toss your strawberries with 2 tbsp of flour. Pour the strawberries into the batter and fold them in carefully.
  • Grease a 9 x 5 glass baking pan. Pour the batter into the pan. Cook for 50-55 minutes. Check the bread. If at any time, it begins to brown too much, cover it with aluminum foil. To check to see if your bread is done, insert a toothpick into the middle. If the toothpick comes out clean, your bread is ready.
  • Remove the bread from the oven and allow it to cool.
  • In the meantime, make the glaze. Combine the powdered sugar with milk and melted butter. Whisk until smooth. Add in the food coloring and whisk again. Then mix in the strawberries.
  • When the bread is cool, pour the glaze over the strawberry bread.
