This blackberry cream cheese bread is so good in the morning for breakfast with a cup of coffee.  We like it as a snack anytime, too.  You could use all kinds of fruit and berries to make this bread. I love the taste of the lemon along with the cream cheese and blackberries in this bread.

1/2 cup butter or margarine or 1 stick or 8 tablespoons, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons lemon zest
2/3 cup buttermilk
2 cups fresh blackberries (can use frozen)
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
Cream butter, sugar, vanilla extract and eggs together with mixer.  Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and lemon zest in another bowl.  Add to creamed mixture along with buttermilk and mix.  Fold in blackberries with a spoon. Cut cream cheese into small pieces and gently fold into flour mixture with spoon.  Spray a 9 x 5 loaf pan.  Pour in bread mixture.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 1 hour and 15 to 20 minutes checking for doneness as ovens vary.  Makes 1 loaf.  Drizzle on glaze recipe below. Enjoy!
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon milk
Mix together with a wire whisk and drizzle over bread.

    I live in a rural area & not so close to a store. l heard once that you can make buttermilk with vinegar & milk if you needed to. Does anyone know the amounts on which to do this ? I appreciate it if anyone has done this. Thank You, Linda.
