Fresh Strawberry Bread

By request, my Mom's recipe. It really is almost more like a cake than a bread. So soft and yummy warm:

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
4 oz. cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, chopped small

Makes 1 loaf
1) Use 9 x 5 pan, grease and flour

2) Preheat oven to 350 degrees

3) Using electric mixer cream butter with cream cheese. Add sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time.

4) Sift flour and mix with baking powder, baking soda and salt.

5) Add flour to butter mixture alternately with buttermilk. Mix until just blended.

6) Fold in chopped strawberries.

7) Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes. (Mine took a little over 60 minutes).

So, let me be the first to say, "shut up!!" Did mama tell you about MY strawberry bread experience?? Decided to be little Martha Stewart and make bread for Calista and Jude's teachers as their end of year gift. Never again! Need I say more? Told mama I will never bake again :( So, once again Martha, "shut up and stop bragging" :) Love you!
