Strawberry Bread with Strawberry Cream Cheese Glaze

Strawberry Bread with Strawberry Cream Cheese Glaze |

This Strawberry Recipe is a keeper! 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

Ok sorry.


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 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”.

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…

  1. Ooh, this bread looks awesome. We have a local strawberry farmer and the strawberries from there are ah-mah-zing, so I’m always looking for things to make with them. And I have to say, I was freakin’ out about the 6 inches of snow we just got last night (I live in TN), until I read that you have 12-18. Wow. If we got 12-18 inches of snow down here, the whole state would shut down…..for days. Hopefully Mother Nature will get her act together soon!

  2. Where I live in East TN we got about 8 inches of snow. Whole area definitely shut down which is kind of funny to me since I grew up in upstate NY – the snow mecca. As for this bread – I could probably eat that glaze alone, the bread is a vehicle. A tasty looking vehicle for an even tastier glaze.

    I made this Sunday,so good! It wasn’t too sweet,like a cake might be,but not a true ‘bread’..kind of a cross between, which was what I was looking for. For the glaze,I just made a simple one of powdered sugar and a little milk,poked holes in top of the bread while still warm and poured the glaze over. I wanted to make the glaze recipe you had on here,it sounds wonderful,but didn’t have cream cheese. Again this is a great recipe,thanks so much for posting it.
