Blackberry Cream Cheese Bread

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. I can never get enough blackberries and can’t wait for summer to make all the good blackberry recipes.   You might also like our recipe for fresh blackberry pie.
