- 1 pkg cream cheese (8-ounce), softened
- 1 c sugar
- 1/4 c butter, softened
- 1 c bananas, ripe and mashed
- 2 eggs
- 2 1/4 c all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 c nuts, chopped (walnuts, pecan, etc.)
1Combine softened cream cheese, sugar, and butter, mixing until well blended.
2Blend in banana and eggs.
3Add combined remaining ingredients mixing until moistened.
4Pour into a greased and floured 9×5-inch loaf pan.
5Bake at 350 degrees, for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center of the bread comes out clean.
6Cool 5 minutes; remove from pan. Glaze if desired when the bread is cooled.
I just make a glaze with powdered sugar, a little milk, and either vanilla or lemon extract. It’s GREAT without glaze too. I personally like it best spreading… you guessed it, cream cheese on each slice. Yum!!
