Strawberry Sweet Bread
Fresh baked strawberry sweet bread with a raw sugar glaze

This recipe does require a bread machine. We use a 1.5lb loaf bread maker and absolutely love it! It’s simple and so fun to make your own breads. Not only is it nice and fresh, but it saves you money and allows you to be super creative!


Makes 1 Full Loaf (1.5lb.)

Sweet Bread Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 2 tsp. Active Yeast (yep, yeast is vegan! Learn more here)
  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/4 Cup Bread Flour
  • 1/8 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1 lb. Fresh Strawberries, chopped

Strawberry Glaze:

  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. Raw Sugar
  • 3-4 Fresh Strawberries, mashed


Note that different bread makers may require slightly different steps. Reference your bread machine’s instructions and adjust this process accordingly.

Baking the Bread

  1. Combine water, sugar, and yeast in the bread maker pan. Allow this to dissolve and foam as it activates for 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Add in all purpose flour, bread flour, baking powder, and vanilla extract.
  3. Adjust the settings on your bread machine appropriately and allow it to knead the dough. Nearing the end of the kneading cycle, add in your chopped strawberries.
  4. Then let your bread machine do its thing! It will allow the bread to rise and then bake it into a delicious warm loaf.

For the Glaze:

  1. Combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix them thoroughly with a fork or whisk.
  2. Allowing the glaze to set while your bread finishes baking will thicken it a bit.

Finish it off!

  1. After your bread is done, allow it to cool some.
  2. Then pour your glaze overtop of the freshly baked bread and top with fresh strawberries!

Enjoy it with a nice cup of coffee or tea.

    • Hello Andrea,

      I’m sorry to hear that! We experimented with this recipe a bit and found that using 1/4 Cup of water resulted in a fluffier bread and allowed the yeast to activate properly. You could try increasing the amount of water slightly or even add a splash of oat milk to help the dough consistency.

  1. Agree.. 1/4 was DEFINITELY not enough.. just fluffing flour around.. I added more water, a little at a time.. it’s in the machine right now.. but I’m not confident.

    • Hi Brandy, I’m sorry to hear that. I hope that it turns out! We’ve played around with this recipe a bit and have adjusted some of the flour and water measurements. Thank you so much for your feedback! 🙂
