Strawberry bread is the perfect sweet bread recipe to whip up for a tasty dessert or even breakfast bread. Fresh strawberries are diced and folded in, so every bite is loaded with rich strawberry flavor.

Add on a sweet glaze and you have a strawberry bread that could even pass as a strawberry cake in my books! 

Is There Yeast In This Bread

No, this bread recipe is considered quick bread. You will use baking soda and powder for the rising aspect of this recipe. You do not use any yeast at all. This is great since so many are struggling to buy and use it right now. 

Fresh Strawberries Or Frozen 

Now, I used fresh strawberries but if you don’t have any on hand, you could very easily add in frozen. Just dice them up and toss them in frozen and mix up the bread. It will color the bread a bit more, from the strawberry juice.

Frozen Strawberries are generally frozen at their prime. So they will have a nice sweet flavor, just a softer texture. The frozen berries will taste just as good in the strawberry cake recipe. 

How To Store Strawberry Bread Once Cooked

After your cake has cooled you will want to store your cake in the fridge. Because of the strawberries, you will find it goes bad if left at room temperature. You will want to cover and store it in the fridge. 

This quick bread can store anywhere from 3-5 days. It is best when eaten fresh as it will dry out a bit as it sits in the fridge.

I like eating it cold straight from the fridge. If you would prefer, feel free to toss in the microwave for a quick reheat or allow to warm up at room temperature. 

Can You Freeze This Quick Bread 

If you freeze this strawberry bread I recommend that you freeze it without the glaze. The glaze will make it become soggy as it thaws. So I do recommend leaving it off if you plan to freeze. Then eat without glaze or make it and drizzle over the thawed bread once you pull from the freezer. 

Could I Add Other Berries To Bread 

Of course, you can add other fruit. Maybe raspberries or even blueberries could be an awesome duo. Or do a mixed berry with a mix of your favorite berries. This recipe is highly versatile and a wonderful sweet bread to gobble up.

My kids and husband love strawberries so this was a huge home run for them.
