Strawberry Bread with Lemon Glaze is a fragrant sweet bread made with fresh strawberries, fresh basil and a tangy lemon glaze.



For the bread:

1 cup plus 1/3 cup strawberries, cut into small pieces

4 tablespoons basil, chopped 

½ cups all-purpose flour

2 eggs

1 tsp baking powder

1/8 tsp baking soda

¼ tsp salt

½ cup white sugar 

½ cup brown sugar

½ cup butter, room temperature

¼ cup vanilla almond milk creamer (or milk of choice)

  ½ tsp vanilla extract

For the glaze:

1 cup confectioners sugar

5 teaspoons lemon juice

2 teaspoon lemon zest


1. Using the paddle attachment on an electric mixer, cream together butter and sugar in an electric mixer at medium speed. 

2. Slowly add eggs, one at a time, mixing at a low speed.

3. Carefully add in creamer and vanilla extract, and continue to mix at a low speed.

4. Add in the dry ingredients, very slowly so that it doesn't blow out of the bowl; this includes the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.

5. Add the basil and strawberries; mix in gently by hand with a rubber spatula.

6. Add this mixture to a bread pan that's already been coated with flour and butter to prevent the bread from sticking to the pan.

7. Bake at 375 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until a fork or toothpick comes out clean.

To make the glaze:

Sift confectioners sugar into a bowl. Add lemon juice and lemon zest, whisking until smooth
