This Fresh Strawberry Bread with Strawberry Cream Cheese Glaze is great for breakfast, lunch or dessert! Loaded with fresh strawberries, it’s a soft cake-like “bread”. Perfectly sweet, you could even add some lemon zest to spice it up!
I seem to have strawberries on the brain lately…maybe because Valentine’s Day is tomorrow…but really I think it’s because I am dreaming of warmer, strawberry-ish weather.
Mother Nature is dumping approximately 12-18 inches of snow on me, as I type this. She isn’t a very nice lady.
Being snowed in is all fun and games until it happens 17 times a week. I have officially gained 10 pounds due to “snowed in baking” and my kids are currently arguing over the European vs American model of weather reporting. Like seriously.
Anyhow, whatever…bad weather is better than no weather…at least that’s what my husband keeps telling me.
Funny how he’s Polly Positive when it comes to weather and not credit card bills.
Some debt is better than no debt…oh wait…
Anyhow, speaking of Polly, let me share a recent picture of our little Polly nugget. She’s getting big.
Strawberry Bread. It’s basically a cake called bread so you’ll feel fine about eating it for breakfast.
AND I poured fresh strawberry cream cheese glaze all up on it. You totally don’t have to..you can slather each slice with butter. But I like a glaze…especially when it involves cream cheese.
First chop up strawberries. About a cup…mine was a heaping cup.
Then coat them with a little flour.. this helps so they don’t sink to the bottom of the “bread”.
Mix up your batter…its easy..and then stir in your strawberries…
Spread it into a greased loaf pan.
And bake it until it’s gorgeous…
If you’re glazing, you can make it like this: Puree strawberries, add some softened cream cheese and powdered sugar and mix up.
I used my mini food processor that I use exactly 3 times a year…
Pour that on top of the strawberry bread…
Let the glaze set up…or don’t…whaterr.
