Cream Cheese Banana Bread

What is it about banana bread that makes you try recipe after recipe even though you already have a tried and true recipe? I don't know but I do know that I LOVE trying out new recipes of banana bread. Case in point - I have over 10 recipes of either banana bread or banana muffins on my blog. Not counting this one. Or the one I am posting tomorrow! hahaha

The cream cheese in this bread makes it SO moist! It was fantastic and one of my favorites!


Cream Cheese Banana Bread
Recipe from FakeGinger

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup mashed bananas (about 2 medium)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Beat butter and cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add egg beating just until blended. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; gradually add to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended. Stir in banana, walnuts, and vanilla. Spoon batter into a greased and floured 8- x 4-inch loafpans.

Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean and sides pull away from pan, shielding with aluminum foil last 15 minutes to prevent browning, if necessary. Cool bread in pan on wire racks 10 minutes. Remove from pan, and cool 30 minutes on wire racks before slicing.
