1/2 c
butter, softened
2
eggs
3
mashed ripe bananas
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp

3 Tbsp
sour cream

CREAM CHEESE MIXTURE:
8 oz
softened cream cheese
1/3 c
sugar
1
egg
1 Tbsp
flour

Directions

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.
