When sliced, this makes a great presentation, and a delicious different banana bread with a cream cheese center. YUM!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Yummy! The filling in this banana bread is a really neat surprise when you first cut into this loaf. I did put some nuts, sugar and cinnamon on the top of the loaf before baking. I enjoyed it while it was still just a little warm and then again when it was entirely cool. Both were tasty, but I must say I liked it a little warm. The flavors are just right!

Ingredients

1 c
sugar
1/2 c
butter, softened
2
eggs
3
mashed ripe bananas
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
baking soda
3 Tbsp
sour cream
2 c
flour
1 c
chopped nuts
CREAM CHEESE MIXTURE:
8 oz
softened cream cheese
1/3 c
sugar
1
egg
1 Tbsp
flour

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix 1 cup sugar, butter & 2 eggs. Add bananas, salt, the soda dissolved in sour cream, & 2 cups flour. Mix well and add nuts.
Divide 1/2 of this mixture into 2 greased & floured loaf pans.
Combine cream cheese mixture ingredients and spread over mixture in pans. Spread remaining banana bread batter on top.
PS ~ I like to sprinkle a few extra nuts on top or sprinkle top with 1 T. sugar mixed w. 1/2 T. cinnamon before baking. Makes a nice crunchy top. But that's totally optional.
2
Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Test for doneness.
Cool and slice. Makes a lovely presentation.

Judy Conti - When I make it, I double the recipe and make 3 loaves out it, using a regular loaf pan - I think that's 5x9? That makes them a good size. You'll love the recipe; it's outstanding!

Had lots of bananas that were about to go bad so I just baked these. Added some cinnamon and vanilla extract. This is delicious!! Super moist perfection. I am definitely going to be making these for holiday gatherings and such. Nice little twist on a holiday favorite.

I had seen a cream cheese stuffed banana bread somewhere and was thinking of making one. So I searched JAP and found yours, when I compared it to my Grandma's banana nut bread they were exactly the except hers didn't have the sour cream. I knew then and there it was a winner.

I didn't convert it to use Truvia because my Momma is diabetic and it was delish that way also. Love Love Love
