Cream Cheese Banana Nut Bread

Everybody has their own favorite version of Banana Bread Recipe. That includes me. But I always love to try new recipes. I made this Cream Cheese Banana Nut Bread for the first time and oh boy, it is heaven. This recipe is seriously scrumptious with the cream cheese in it. Besides, everybody knows that anything with cream cheese has to be good. I honestly do not know who to credit with this recipe, because it was a  print out filed in my wish list file, and didn't have any credits attached.

Cream Cheese Banana Nut Bread Recipe

  • ½ cup butter or margarine softened
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 3 ripe mashed bananas
  • 1¼ cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 ¼ cupall purpose flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoon brown sugar
  •  cup chopped pecans or walnuts 
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter/margarine and the cream cheese together. Gradually add the white sugar and continue beating until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one egg at a time, beating well after each egg. Stir in the mashed bananas and vanilla. Slowly add the brown sugar, cinnamon, flour, baking powder and baking soda. Mix until the batter is just moist. (careful not to mix too long after you've added the flour.) Fold in your choice of chopped nuts.
  • Pour the batter into two greased/floured 8x4" loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes on middle rack, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  •  Once baked, let loafs rest in pans for 5 minutes, then carefully turn out of pan onto a cooling rack.
