I have been using this recipe for a few years now, and it remains my family’s favorite for banana bread! The combination of bananas and cream cheese make this a very moist bread.
Yummy Yummy. What a pleasent taste and so very moist. I’ve made this so many times and it’s a keeper. Hints: I always use 3 good sized banana’s, which is a lot more than what the recipe calls for.
This IS a very creamy bread, but i think it lacks flavor. I made it for the first time today, in a large rectangular cake pan, and it took only 30 minutes. I added 1TB vanilla because usually like more than recipes call for.
This is the best banana bread recipe I’ve found. The cream cheese makes the texture wonderful. Plus, the bread freezes really well. So, with the two loaves, I put one in the freezer and leave another out for the family.
i added some chocolate chips with the filling and it didn’t last two hours!..this was an incredible bread that i will make again and again!
