Yes, folks! There is such a thing as Strawberry Bread, and it's a beautiful thing!! :o)
The very first time I made this recipe (courtesy of My Baking Addiction) , I only made one loaf just to see how it would turn out. I made it one afternoon, and by that evening, DH and I had eaten more than half the loaf!
So I made more!
Don't worry, we're not gonna eat them all at once. I made extras to freeze so we can have yummy Strawberry Bread even when strawberries aren't in season. Yum!
Look at those big beautiful strawberry pieces! Go ahead . . . take a closer look . . .
Here's how to make your own!
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 oz cream cheese, softened
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tsps baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1 1/2 cups strawberries, rinse, dried and chopped
DirectionsPreheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and flour a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
With electric mixer cream butter, sugar and cream cheese until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Mix in vanilla.
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.
Carefully fold in strawberries. Dough mixture will be thick.
Bake for 50 to 60 minutes
Let cool and enjoy!!
P.S. I like to spread cream cheese on my slice of bread. Delicious! :oD
