Strawberry Cream Cheese Bread
It’s been a while since I made a quick bread. They’re truly one of my favorite things to bake, although I don’t seem to make them often enough. Anyway, I decided to take advantage of all the summer berries by making a simple bread with strawberries.
Of course, what goes better with strawberries than cream cheese? Granted, I’m pretty much always looking for an excuse to use cream cheese, but this is truly a fabulous use for it.
The bread itself is packed with oats and brown sugar and strawberries, making a pretty tasty treat on its own. But, to me, the best part of this bread is that the sweetened cream cheese mixture isn’t completely mixed into the bread. Instead, it’s just slightly mixed into the batter with a few turns of a spoon. The result is that you get little bursts of big cream cheese flavor every few bites.
