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

Sweet, moist, and dense, this really is a yummy banana nut bread recipe. It has the perfect amount of banana to make the bread moist and not gummy. Mixing cream cheese into the batter makes is a unique ingredient but helps with the bread's texture too. Enjoy a slice for breakfast or a snack. You can enjoy it the way it is, smear a bit of cream cheese onto a slice or spread some butter on the warm bread. Yum! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Yummy Banana Nut Bread

Step-by-Step

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