♥ Strawberry Cream Cheese Bread with Vanilla Icing



 

 
One of my favorite breads to make in spring and summer. It is especially wonderful with a little softened cream cheese spread on top when it's still hot after just coming out of the oven! You will love this quick bread!

 
 
 
 
 
Strawberry Cream Cheese Bread with Vanilla Icing

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
2 cups strawberries, rinsed, dried, and chopped

Grease and flour a 9 x 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 degrees oven for 50 to 60 minutes.
 
For the Glaze:

4 tablespoons melted butter
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
¼ tsp vanilla extract

Combine the powdered sugar, vanilla, and butter. Slowly add milk, stirring until smooth. Extra milk can be added to thin if desired...I like mine nice and thick.
