Strawberries & Cream Bread

The WalMart here in town had a 2 pound container of fresh strawberries for $1 and I couldn't pass up a great deal.  So, I bought two containers, got home and didn't know what I was going to do with 4 pounds of strawberries. 

I searched the internet for recipes and found this one for bread and it turned out really good!!!  Hope you enjoy it as well.

Strawberries & Cream Bread

1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar            
2 eggs, room temperature
1/2 cup sour cream, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups strawberries, fresh & coarsely chopped (do not use frozen)
3/4 cup walnuts (optional)             
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; set aside.  In small bowl, beat butter until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beat 1 minute or until light and airy. Add brown sugar. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat in sour cream and vanilla.  Stir into flour mixture only until dry ingredients are moistened.  Fold in strawberries and nuts.  Pour into a greased 8 x 4 inch loaf pan.  Bake at 350°F for 60 to 65 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Let stand 10 minutes in pan.  Turn out on rack to cool.
