Rich and creamy banana bread - no topping required! I had been playing around with ingredients from different recipes and this is the result.

How to Make Luscious Banana Nut Bread


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place softened butter and cream cheese in large mixing bowl; add sugars and beat until light and fluffy.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat together. Pour in mashed bananas, half 'n half and vanilla; mix just until blended.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, soda and salt. Add to banana mixture, 1/2 at a time, and mix until combined. Add the chopped nuts and stir into banana batter.
  4. Pour batter into a large, greased bread pan; put into preheated oven and bake approximately 1 hour, or until knife comes out clean and loaf is golden brown. WATCH and do not overcook.

    TIP: It isn't necessary (in my opinion), but bread slices may be topped with softened butter or cream cheese.
