Sweet Maple Living’s Strawberry Bread Recipe

Hey folks! Lately I have been seeing a facebook recipe go viral of a Strawberry Bread.  Looking into the recipe, it is unclear of whom the original poster of it is.  Without the original poster, I do not feel comfortable giving credit where credit is not due... so here we are in true Sweet Maple Living fashion... we gave this recipe a whirl with our very own touches to optimize the previous recipe posted. The following recipe is what I have created and I can 100% stand behind it, knowing if you use the exact ingredients listed you will have great outcome!

Ingredients FOR BREAD:
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup oil (I used cooking olive oil, since that’s what I had!)
2 large eggs 
1 TSP vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose floud
2 TSP baking powder 
1/4 TSP salt
2 cups diced strawberries (I used my Pampered Chef Chopper)
2 TBSP all-purpose flour —-> to coat the strawberries 

Ingredients FOR GLAZE:
2 cups powdered sugar
2 TBSP Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter (salted) melted 
1/3 cup fine chopped strawberries 
1/2-1 TSP vanilla extract
2 TBSP heavy whipping cream


-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-In medium bowl, stir together sugar/milk/oil/eggs/vanilla.  In separate bowl combine together flour/baking powder/salt.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet a little at a time.  Stir/mix until combined. 
-In small bowl, mix together the strawberries and 2 TBSP of flour.  This will coat the strawberries so they cook correctly, also allowing them to not sink to the very bottom.  
-Fold the floured strawberries into the bread mixture.
- Pour the bread mixture into a greased bread loaf pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes (mine took 47 minutes, and I am very adamant about not over baking my recipes).  
-You will know when your bread is done all of the way through by testing it with a toothpick, or if you’re like me, just eyeball it!
-Allow the bread to cool enough to remove it from the bread pan.  I let mine sit for at least 20 minutes and very easily loosened the edges with a butter knife to assure it came out beautifully.  

-Making the glaze: combine together powdered sugar/melted butter/Chopped strawberries/vanilla extract/heavy whipping cream in a small bowl.  Mix until smooth and all sugar is dissolved.  
-Once the bread is cool enough (hot will melt the glaze right off) pour the glaze mixture over the top center of the bread. 

-If you feel inclined, you can add seasonal sprinkles for a festive touch like I did!

-Now you can slice and serve!
