Strawberry Cream Cheese Bread

This bread is currently sitting on the counter cooling, and every time I go in the kitchen I’m strongly tempted to take a huge bite out of the middle of the loaf. I’ve made it several times before, and it’s super delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 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
  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries, rinsed, dried (or thawed) and chopped


Grease and flour a 9X5″ loaf pan and set aside.

Cream the butter, sugar, and cream cheese until fluffy. Add the eggs, beating after each, then the vanilla.

Stir together the dry ingredients in another bowl, then beat into the butter mixture in two additions. It’ll be pretty dry at this point.

Beat in the buttermilk until just combined, and it’ll go back to batter-texture.

Gently fold in the strawberries.

Pour out into the prepared pan.

Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted near the middle comes out clean.

Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn out on a wire rack to cool. If you can’t eat it all at once, this freezes well and will bounce back for breakfast another day.

My name's Corinne, and I like cake, cookies, and chocolate! Also, non-c-things such as ponies, Star Trek, and biking. (Over the summer, my bike glove tans will probably become pretty glaring in some of these photos.) I'll be sharing my adventures in the kitchen. Expect lots of recipes to have chocolate swapped in to replace other inferior ingredients.
