Yummy Banana Nut Bread

Genny Miller


This is my family's all-time favorite banana nut bread. I've been making it for years. The addition of cream cheese makes it so nice and moist. Of course, I'm a cream cheese lover. I admit it! :0)

It also tastes wonderful with a nice cup of coffee or tea. Enjoy!

I think what makes this banana bread so good and different is the cream cheese in the actual bread. This was super moist. It was yummy for breakfast and would be a great after-school snack. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Yummy Banana Nut Bread


  1. Combine softened cream cheese, sugar, and butter, mixing until well blended. Blend in banana and eggs. Add combined remaining ingredients, mixing until moistened.
  2. Pour into a greased and floured 9x5-inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees, for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until wooden toothpick inserted near center of bread comes out clean.
  3. Cool 5 minutes; remove from pan. Glaze if desired when bread is cooled.

    NOTE: I just make a glaze with powdered sugar, a little milk, and either vanilla or lemon extract. It's GREAT without glaze too. I personally like it best spreading...you guessed it.....Cream Cheese on each slice. Yum!! Makes 1 loaf.
