Strawberries & Cream Bread

This is one of my favorite breads to make & it's a slice of this makes one perfect, super delicious breakfast. Try it toasted with a smidgen of butter or cream cheese on top if you really want to do it up.

makes 1 loaf


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 8oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups bread flour (all purpose can also be used)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, chopped


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease & flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan. With an electric mixer, cream together butter, sugar, & cream cheese. Mix the eggs in one at a time, & then stir in vanilla.  

In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, & salt. Combine the flour mixture with the wet mixture; add buttermilk & stir just until combined.  Do not overmix!  Gently fold in strawberries.  The mixture will be thick.  

Bake for 45-55 minutes.
