Strawberry Cream Cheese Bread



1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 (3 ounce) cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk (half 'n half)
1 1/2 cups strawberries, chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)

Directions:
1 With electric mixer cream butter, sugar and cream cheese until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Mix in vanilla.

2 In separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Blend flour mixture with butter mixture just until blended. Add half 'n half and only stir just to blend -- do not over stir!

3 Drain strawberries and blot dry. Carefully just fold in strawberries and nuts. Dough mixture will be thick.

4 Grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes. Let bread mellow for one day and then serve.
