Sweet Sunday

I have a tried & true banana bread recipe that I have used for years, but with the twist of cream cheese added, this recipe became very intriguing to me.

Cream Cheese Banana Bread

3/4 c. butter softened

1 (8-oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened
2 c. sugar
2 eggs
3 c. self rising flour
3-4 medium sized mashed bananas
1 c. chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350. Grease & flour 2 8x4-inch bread loaf pans; set aside. Beat butter and cream cheese until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time beating until just blended. Gradually add the flour to the mixture, beating at low speed until just blended. Stir in bananas, nuts and vanilla. Spoon batter evenly into loaf pans. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pans and cool on wire rack. -- Yields: 2 loaves
