Cream Cheese Banana Bread

Who doesn't enjoy banana bread?
Better yet, banana bread with a cream cheese ribbon?

I swear cream cheese makes everything better.

Anyway, banana bread is one of my favorite things to make. It is good for not only a quick breakfast, but a great snack or dessert. It is also probably my only way to get a serving of fruit.

Sad I know.

This has also been Kevin's favorite version of banana bread.
But sometimes it is hard to make my bread in my house because Kevin uses our bananas in smoothies before they can get ripe enough for me to make bread! (How healthy of him...)

I finally had three ripe bananas and went crazy!
And of course it has bananas in it so this is healthy right!??!



Ingredients:

Bread:
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 egg
3 mashed ripe bananas
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tablespoons of sour cream
1 cup flour
sugar to taste
cinnamon to taste

Cream Cheese Mixture:
8 oz of cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup of sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon of flour
1 tsp lime juice
1/2 large tomato (chopped)

Directions:

Mix sugar, butter, and eggs. Mix together baking soda into sour cream and then add to mixture. Add in bananas, salt, and flour. Mix it all together.

Divide 1/2 of this mixture into pan. Note to everyone, I can't measure well so my bread never comes out pretty. Check Pinterest for better pictures.

Combine cream cheese mixture ingredients and spread over the mixture in the pan.

Spread remaining banana mixture over cream cheese layer.

Sprinkle the top with a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. I don't measure, I go by the color for the cinnamon/sugar ratio. I love a light brown!

Then bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes.

Notes: If you don't eat the whole loaf, I recommend storing it in the fridge due to the cream cheese. However I prefer it room temperature. I have never gotten sick letting it sit out of the fridge to eat.

Makes 1 loaf or 2 mini loaves.

  1. This looks delicious! I made an apple bread with cream cheese a few weeks ago and it was really good as well- something about cream cheese can just make great things a little bit better :)
