  • 9x5 loaf pan


  • ½ cup Salted Butter room temperature
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ¼ Vegetable Oil
  • 3 large Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • ½ tsp Kosher Salt
  • 2 cups Strawberries sliced into chunks

Lemon Glaze

  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 3-4 tbsps Lemon Juice
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Zest


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Sliced strawberries into small chunks. Place in a bowl and add ¼ cup of sugar and set aside.
  • In a large bowl with a hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, add room temperature butter and ¾ cup sugar and beat together for 3-5 minutes on medium speed, until butter becomes fluffy and sugar is dissolved. Slowly pour in vegetable oil and continue to mix.
  • Add eggs one at a time and then add vanilla extract. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and continue to mix for another 30 seconds.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and kosher salt. Add ½ of the ingredients to the wet ingredients and fold together. Then add remainder of the dry ingredients and fold together until dry ingredients are fully incorporated, about 20 seconds. Do not over mix.
  • Fold strawberries into the batter.
  • Spray a 9x5 loaf pan with nonstick baking spray. Add batter and bake for 1 hour, until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow bread to cool for 5 minutes inside of the pan and then on a plate or cooling rack for 20-25 minutes.
  • Make the lemon glaze by mixing together powdered sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Drizzle on top of strawberry bread.
