Sunday Supper Suggestion, Cream Cheese Banana Bread.

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Celebrate the family with your own Sunday Supper, one of our favorite ways to bring the family together! We offer the following suggestions, and hope that you enjoy them as much as we do!

There are no rules for what is appropriate to serve for Sunday Dinner, it can be as fancy as you like or as frugal as you need! What makes Sunday Dinner special is who you get to dine with...

We have news! Proudly presenting our unique and delicious cookbook series, “Cooking by the Seat of my Pants!” from Our Sunday Cafe, available right here!

For this week's Sunday Dinner, I would like to suggest the following...

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
350-degree oven

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 eggs
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 the 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.

  1. My husband loves banana bread, but I've never made a version that calls for cream cheese. I think I'll have to give it shot next time he asks for this.

  2. Sounds delicious - a dessert for me! Thanks for sharing on the What's for Dinner link up~

  3. This sounds amazing! I'm sure the cream cheese makes it very moist and adds that special something to the taste.

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. You're going to put cream cheese on it anyway, why not bake it in?
    Sounds yummy. I have successfully used white whole wheat flour for all of my baking. I usually use my blue ribbon recipe, but this sounds delicious :-)
