I made this bread for sharing at our Sunday dinner. It is delicious! Deliciously different, with or without walnuts. The recipe is great for our family as we have nut lovers and those that do not eat nuts. Anytime a recipe results in two loaves, it is so easy to please everyone...This recipe will also adapt very well to whole grains baking.

Cream Cheese Banana Bread
adapted from: Mel's Kitchen Cafe
makes 2 loaves
1 1/2 sticks butter (3/4 c)
1 8oz block cream cheese
1 1/2 c sugar
3 large bananas (1 1/2-2 c)
2 t vanilla
3 c flour - next time I will use a 50/50 mix of all-purpose and whole grain flours
1 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 t cinnamon
1/8 t nutmeg
1 T sugar
1/4 t cinnamon
1 c finely chopped walnuts if desired
Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar together until fluffy. Beat in eggs, bananas, and vanilla. Next, add flour through nutmeg. Mix well.
Prepare 2 8X4 loaf pans. Place half the batter into one of the pans, combine the sugar and cinnamon, sprinkle over top of dough.
Add walnuts to the remaining batter, mix gently, spread in the loaf pan.
Bake 45-55 minutes, or until done in your oven. Let cool 5 minutes in the pans, turn out to cool completely.
