Cream Cheese Filled Banana Bread

Cream Cheese Filled Banana Bread just sounds great. Take a great banana bread recipe and kick it up a notch with a layer of cream cheese for extra taste and moisture.

Makes 2 loaves.

Ingredients for Bread:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened/melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp sour cream
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup chopped nuts, optional

Ingredients for Filling:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp flour

Process for Bread:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Break bananas into pieces in a mixing bowl.
  3. Beat bananas until they are “smashed”.
  4. Add butter and eggs to bananas, mix well.
  5. Add salt, baking soda and sour cream, mix well.
  6. Add flour {and nuts if using} and mix well.
  7. Divide half of the bread mixture between two greased loaf pans {the original recipe said greased and floured pans; I tried just greasing them the second time I made this and found greasing was enough}. Set other half of bread mixture aside.

Process for Filling:

  1. Beat together cream cheese, sugar, flour and egg until smooth.
  2. Divide the filling between the two loaf pans, pouring evenly over the first layer of bread mixture.
  3. Top filling with the remaining bread mixture.
  4. Bake loaves for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes.
  5. Remove loaves from pans and place on a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Enjoy!
