Two to share

Gluten-Free & livin' the dream... I have two recipes to share that are yum-yum-yummy!

Strawberry Cream Cheese Bread
(how could this not be good)

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar (don't try using half Splenda like I did on the first go-round)
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 eggs
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
2 cups GF Bisquick
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
at least 2 cups strawberries, chopped

Cream butter, sugar, and cream cheese until light and whipped. Add eggs- letting each one mix in before adding the next. Add vanilla.
Mix in Bisquick on low speed until just mixed.  Add buttermilk last and stir until just combined. Add strawberries. Do not over mix!
Bake in a 9x5 loaf pan for 55 minutes. Remove and cover with foil to cool.

Banana Bread with no nuts

1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar (more or less depending on taste, I like more)
3 eggs
1 tbsp. vanilla
1 cup soy flour
1 cup rice flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
4-5 icky bananas

Peel bananas and place in bowl. Add butter and sugar and mix until lightened in color- about 2 minutes. Add eggs, individually. Next- vanilla.
In a separate bowl, mix flours, salt, soda, and powder. Slowly add to gooey butter mixture. Once combined, add buttermilk, Do not overmix.
Bake at 350 in a loaf pan for about 50-60 minutes. Remove and cover with foil. Allow to cool in pan.

yummmmmmm......Who says GF bread has to have the consistency of pound cake and taste like salt?
