Berry Bread with Spread

 Berry Bread with Spread
The recipe for these two loaves and the creamy strawberry spread came from my mother's collection. I added macadamia nuts to give the fruit bread a fun crunch and tropical flair. —Pat Stewart Lees Summit, Missouri
32 ServingsPrep: 20 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling


  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen sweetened sliced strawberries, thawed
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 jar (3 ounces) macadamia nuts, chopped


  • For strawberry spread, in a small bowl, beat the cream cheese until
  • smooth. Drain strawberries, reserving 1/4 cup juice for bread
  • batter. Beat 6 tablespoons berries into the cream cheese. Set
  • remaining berries aside. Chill spread until serving.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking soda.
