Strawberry Nut Bread

This is a very moist bread. It is very good and not too sweet. The next time I make this I am going to put chopped fresh strawberries in as well. This made a great breakfast treat!

Strawberry Nut Bread
1/2 cup butter

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 eggs

1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. salt

3/8 tsp. cream of tartar

1/4 tsp. baking soda

1/2 cup strawberry preserves

1/4 cup sour cream

1/4 cup finely chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a loaf pan and line the bottom with parchment. In a large mixing bowl cream the butter, sugar, and vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. In a medium bowl sift together the flour, salt, cream of tartar, and baking soda. In a small mixing bowl combine the strawberry preserves and sour cream and mix well. Alternately add the strawberry mixture and the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Mix thoroughly after each addition until all ingredients are blended. Pour into the loaf pan. Bake for 50 minutes, or until done.
