How to Make Strawberry Cheesecake Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 350^. Grease and flour 9x5-inch loaf pan or spray with non-stick spray.Set aside.
  2. Using your electric mixer cream the butter, sugar and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time. Mix in the vanilla or you can use almond flavoring. Remove bowl from mixer.
  3. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl, whisk to blend. Using a wooden spoon blend the flour mixture into the creamy mixture just until blended(like for muffins). Stir in half and half just until blended- do not over mix.
  4. Carefully just fold in the mashed strawberries; and nuts, if using. Dough will be thick. Save a few mashed berries to swirl in the batter on top.
    Pour into prepared pan and smooth evenly. Bake for 50-60 minutes. Let bread rest in pan for 5 minutes. Then remove let cool completely; wrap and best served the nest day for full intense flavor...I can never wait though-LOL.... but is better the next day.
