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

Blue Ribbon Recipe

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! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Aunt Lynda's Cream Cheese filled Banana Bread

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.
