Fresh Strawberry Bread

It's that time of year!!! 


I love strawberrys.  Especially when they are fresh from the field.  I picked some up from the Farmer's Market this past weekend and knew I had to make something yummy with them.  What did I decide on?

A delicious strawberry bread.  It is SO good.  Like, I will never use another recipe for Strawberry Bread.  This one rocked. 

I hope you enjoy!

Fresh Strawberry Bread

Taken from www.mybakingaddiction.com

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 cup buttermilk  **I used regular milk and it tasted delicious too***
1 1/2 cups strawberries, rinse, dried and chopped  **I added a little more just because**

1. Grease and flour a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
2. With electric mixer cream butter, sugar and cream cheese until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Mix in vanilla.
3. In separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Blend flour mixture with butter mixture just until blended. Add buttermilk and only stir until just combined; do not over mix.
4. Carefully fold in strawberries. Dough mixture will be thick.
5. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes.

**Depending on your oven, it might take a little longer to bake.  I cooked mine for 60 minutes uncovered, and then covered it with foil for another 15 minutes.**
