Fresh Strawberry Bread

I found this recipe at My Baking Addiction, which is one of my new favorite baking blogs. This recipe would be so perfect for a social event such as a wedding or baby shower or a brunch. Anytime, really! This was such a moist flavorful bread. I loved the strong strawberry flavor. I doubled this recipe and got 3 small loaves. The orginal below states it makes one loaf in a 9x5 bread pan but I think there is a lot more dough than that. You decide.

What You Need:
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 salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 cups strawberries, hulled and chopped {I used the food processor}

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 in a 350 degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes. I needed to cover mine with foil after about 45 minutes so they would not burn on top. Enjoy!


  1. That looks delicious!!!!!!! Looks so moist!

  2. It really is, Amy! :) One thing I should add to this post is to refrigerate, though. The berries don't do well sitting out.
