How to Make Cream Cheese Banana Bread

  1. Preheat oven to 350F grease and flour 2-8"x4" loaf pans.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat together butter and cream cheese until creamy. Gradually add sugar mixing until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing just until blended.
  4. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating on low speed until blended. Stir in bananas, pecans and vanilla extract.
