Strawberry Cream Cheese Bread

So I tend to end up with cream cheese.  And other than cook with it, I don't use it (like I don't put it on bread or anything) so I was looking for something to "use" up cream cheese. I found this recipe....Ray has declared it better than my strawberry muffins, which is quite the compliment from him as he ADORES those!

Strawberry Cream Cheese Bread
Modified from Genius Kitchen

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
3 oz cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups strawberries, chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans (optional...I didn't use it)

Cream butter, sugar and cream cheese until fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time.  Mix in vanilla.

In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Blend flour mixture with butter mixture just until blended.  Add milk and only stir to blend. 

Fold in strawberries.  Dough will be thick.

Grease and flour 9 by 5 inch loaf pan*.  Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes. 

Makes 1 full loaf*.

*I actually did this as mini loaves and got like 16 or 17 mini loaves out of a double batch.  I baked it for about 30-35 minutes.
