Raspberry Cream Cheese Bread

The weekend is almost here…… and by late morning tomorrow, I’ll only have one half of the posse in the house. Sabrina (lucky devil) is going with a friend and her family to the beach and Disneyland for 5 days.

5 DAYS??!?

I feel like a Dr. Seuss character ….  I’m turning green with envy.

If I had my way, I’d grab Alexander and we’d jet off somewhere.

Like Disneyland.

Alas, responsibility (and Daisy) will prevent my ability to skip town that easily. So let’s ponder, just for a moment, all the wondrous things I could accomplish this weekend:  Paint. Hang the posse’s awards/diplomas and get them off the table. Plant an avocado tree. Relax on my hammock. Sip mango daiquiris. Catch up on some movies I’ve been dying to see. Bake something new and challenging.

All of a sudden, this weekend is starting to sound quite wondrous indeed…….


Raspberry Cream Cheese Bread – adapted from my baking addiction
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9×5 inch loaf pan. With electric mixer cream butter, sugar and cream cheese until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Mix in vanilla.
In separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder and baking soda. Blend flour mixture with butter mixture just until blended. Add buttermilk and only stir until just combined; do not over mix. Carefully fold in raspberries. Dough mixture will be thick. Bake for 50-60 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before removing from pan.

  1. Girl, you rock. Sounds like a fun weekend to me. We are getting ready to drive to KS, which really isn’t all that fun. Being there will be, but getting there–not so much with a car full of boys. 😉 Hey, are you not on FB anymore? I just posted a pretty important post yesterday. I want to share it with you. I just realized I should email you instead of post it here. I’m still working on a blog post with the new announcement. You’re still one of my faves. You make me smile with your posts and I love all your delicious food. 😉
