Easy Strawberry Glaze Ingredients

For this glaze, I’m using strawberry jam. You could also use crushed freeze dried strawberries, but I didn’t have any.

Ingredients you will need:

  • Powdered Sugar
  • Lemon Juice
  • Half & Half
  • Strawberry jam or jelly

When working with powdered sugar, I find that it’s easier to combine all wet ingredients first and start adding the sugar in a little at a time.

You can sift it if you want, but be sure to whisk out any lumps if they occur. I skipped the sifting this time and didn’t have an issue with lumps.

This strawberry glaze is the perfect topping for strawberry cake or scones or even pound cake! The lemon juice keeps it light and the strawberry jam is perfectly sweet.

I hope you love it!

    1. Hi Mary! Here in the USA we have half and half, which is half milk and half full fat heavy cream. You can use whatever you have access to. A heavier cream will result in a thicker glaze. Hope this helps!
