Fresh Baked Strawberry & Cream Cheese Bread
So last night I was feening for some dessert and couldn’t figure out what to make. No way I could watch Nashville without something sweet to accompany the drama. I was down to a package of cream cheese and some frozen strawberries in my freezer.  I thought about making some dessert bars, but quickly realized I was all out of butter.  Crap!

So, after sending my hubby & son to the store to get some butter, I quickly got on Pinterest and started searching.  I typed in Strawberries & Cream Cheese in the search bar to see which desserts would pop up.  I came across a recipe for this delicious bread and was directed to an awesome baking blog called Bake or Break.

When I find recipes, I can usually tell right away by the ingredients or instructions if the dish will turn out ok.   I’m so glad I found this blog, because there are a lot of great recipes on there.  Shouts out to Bake or Break for sharing this awesome bread!

As with most recipes, I make changes where I see fit or double-up/halve if I want to make more or less of something.  In this case I doubled up the recipe to make 2 loaves and made just a few tweaks for my personal taste.

I’m going to give you all of the ingredients, but include (highlight) where I made changes so you can make it as you please.  If you want 2 loaves just follow the bolded ingredients.  This bread is Soooooo Gooooood!     I thought I was in love with Target’s Market Pantry Blueberry Streusel Bread, but This Right Here (in my Tamar Braxton voice)…Woooo!!   Can you tell I love to eat?

Anyway, let’s get to it.
