Truth be told, I’m not a huge strawberry eater. I like strawberries but they need to be in something: a sauce, a salad, a dessert, a muffin…you get the idea. That’s where this yummy Glazed Strawberry Lemon Yogurt Loaf comes into play. There’s all sorts of delicious flavors in this loaf and an undeniably tender texture from using yogurt. The lemon within the loaf and in the glaze presents a nice pop of flavor that compliments the underlying strawberry flavor just perfectly. You’ll love this trust me! Ideal as a dessert, but at my house this is more of a weekend breakfast.

My little girls really enjoyed this too, the lemon is a bit tart and but nicely offset by the vanilla yogurt and bits of strawberry goodness. Next time you have some fresh strawberries be sure to make this yummy loaf, it is delish!

  4. What a gorgeous loaf, love strawberry and lemon together. Plus, I love using yogurt or sour cream to make a moist loaf, it works so well!

  5. I love anything with glaze on top! This loaf looks so wonderful! Can’t wait to give it a try!

  9. Oh, that glaze just puts this strawberry loaf over the top! I’d love a big ol’ slice with my morning coffee.

  10. So I made this for work yesterday. Among 5 of us, we ate the entire loaf that day. For my taste it’s a little sweet. I might swap out 1/2 a cup of sugar w/monkfruit or some other sugar substitute, or perhaps reduce the sugar to 1/2 or 3/4 cup.
