How to turn formula into UDF?

I use a formula (see below) to extract a string that is contained between double/single quotes.

=MID(A1,FIND(")",A1,1)+2,45)

How to I change this formula into a UDF?

Function "ExtractTitle"
...
...
End Function

Btw, the currently formula includes the "" and ' ' upon extraction.   I really only need the text in between.   Any suggestions as to how the double/single quotes can be removed from the output?

This finds the first string between double quotes:
Function ExtractTitle(strText As String) As String
    Dim strParts() As String
    
    strParts = Split("x" & strText, """") '"x" copes with case of " in position 1
    ExtractTitle = strParts(1)
End Function

The "x" was unnecessary. This version works with single quotes as well:
Function ExtractTitle(strText As String) As String
    Dim strParts() As String
    
    strParts = Split(strText, """")
    If UBound(strParts) = 0 Then
        strParts = Split(strText, "'")
    End If
    If UBound(strParts) > 0 Then
        ExtractTitle = strParts(1)
    End If
End Function
