Strawberry Almond Cake

This recipe could work for breakfast or dessert.

3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
2 teaspoons almond extract
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups diced strawberries tossed into 2 tablespoons of flour

2 cups powdered sugar
2-3 tablespoons melted butter (more is always better!)
1/2 cup finely diced strawberries
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 tablespoons heavy cream


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl whisk sugar, milk, oil, egg and almond extract. In another bowl whisk remaining dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Add strawberries. Pour into greased loaf pan and bake 50-55 minutes. Let cool completely.

To make the glaze:

Whisk all ingredients except strawberries together. Add strawberries. Cut into the bread like you are slicing it but do not cut all the way through. Pour glaze over, allowing glaze to drizzle into partial cuts.

Then fully slice to serve!
