Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with baking spray; set aside. Finely mash strawberries in a large bowl with a potato masher. Add egg, 2/3 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup melted butter; whisk to combine. Add all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and lemon zest; stir until well combined. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan.

  • Combine oats and the remaining 1/3 cup brown sugar, 3 tablespoons melted butter, 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl; mix with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over the batter; press gently to adhere.

  • Bake until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 55 minutes, loosely covering with foil during the final 15 minutes of cook time to prevent over-browning, if needed. Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and let cool completely on a wire rack, about 1 hour.

  • Whisk confectioners' sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl until smooth. Drizzle over the cooled bread.
