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!

mashed ripe bananas

CREAM CHEESE MIXTURE:
8 oz
softened cream cheese

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.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Test for doneness.
Cool and slice. Makes a lovely presentation.
