- 1 cup chopped strawberries
- 2 Tbsp flour
- 1/2 cup butter room temperature
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 3/4 cups flour
For The Glaze
- 1/4 cup strawberry jam or preserves
- 1/4 cup 2 oz cream cheese, room temperature
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
Put the chopped strawberries in a small bowl. Add flour and stir/toss making sure they’re coated well. Set aside.
In a mixer, or by hand, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes of vigorous mixing. Next, add the eggs and vanilla mixing until fully incorporated, scraping the sides, as necessary.
Add in the baking powder and salt and mix to completely combine.
Turn the mixer to low and slowly begin adding in the flour and milk, beginning and ending with flour, but alternating between the two.
Continue mixing until batter is smooth and evenly combined.
Using a spatula, fold in the strawberries until they’re fully incorporated, evenly, into the batter. Pour the batter into a greased 9×5 in. pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes, or until center is set and a toothpick or knife that’s inserted into your loaf comes out clean.
Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then remove from the pan and allow it to finish cooling on a wire rack.
To Make The Glaze
Beat the strawberry jam/preserves, cream cheese, and powdered sugar together until smooth. Spread over the cooled bread, allowing it to drip down the sides. Wait about 10 minutes to allow the glaze to ‘set’ before slicing and serving.
