Strawberry Bread Recipe With Cinnamon And Vanilla Glaze

An old-fashioned strawberry bread recipe made with mashed fresh strawberries, a touch of cinnamon and topped with a vanilla powdered sugar glaze.

What a great way to use up fresh strawberries that might have become a bit too ripe for other recipes! You mash the berries and incorporate them into the batter so you get bits of strawberry in every bite.

Because this bread uses sweeter ingredients you can also serve this as a dessert bread in place of heavier desserts for a summer dinner. It can be served for a snack, with coffee, as a dessert, or as part of a summer brunch menu.

The glaze is poured over the hot bread and soaks into the bread, keeping it moist and making it just slightly sweet. To me the glaze makes this bread special.

Although it tastes great on its own with a bit of butter, you also tastes fantastic with a smear of this cream cheese spread.

Because this quick bread recipe makes 2 loaves, you can easily freeze one the loaves if you will not be eating both all at once. You could also give the second loaf to a nice neighbor or someone else that would appreciate the gift.

Serving Ideas: Serve this summery strawberry recipe as part of your favorite breakfast or brunch menu with creamy scrambled eggs, ham with ham glaze, and fruit filled cantaloupe.
