When sliced, this makes a great presentation. 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. We did put some nuts, sugar, and cinnamon on the top of the loaf before baking. We enjoyed it while it was still just a little warm and then again when it was entirely cool. Both were tasty, but we must say we liked it a little warm. The flavors are just right!

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

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix 1 cup sugar, butter and 2 eggs.
  2. Add bananas, salt, the baking soda dissolved in sour cream, and 2 cups flour. Mix well and add nuts.
  3. Divide 1/2 of this mixture into 2 greased and floured loaf pans.
  4. Combine cream cheese mixture ingredients and spread over mixture in pans.
  5. Spread remaining banana bread batter on top.
  6. PS ~ I like to sprinkle a few extra nuts on to. Or, sprinkle top with 1 Tbsp sugar mixed with 1/2 tsp cinnamon before baking. Makes a nice crunchy top. But that's totally optional.
  7. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Test for doneness.
  8. Cool and slice. Makes a lovely presentation.
