Making delicious and tasty breads is a quest for me. After making the popular Cinnamon Roll Bread and Pumpkin Bread, I decided to add the Cream Cheese Banana Bread to the collection. This scrumptious bread is a must try and the perfect way to elevate a classic banana bread.

Just as I was starting to get a bit bored making the same old (but delicious) banana bread you’ve gone and made it even yummier. My boys are going to love this! Thanks

What is it that I am not understanding about the cream cheese filling? It says 1/3 cup sugar and 2 T flour and when reading the recipe it says add remaining 2T of each?? I am confused ‍♀️

Hi Jill, Do you have any nutritional info on the recipes you post? I’m diabetic and once in a while get a hankering for a taste of this sort of thing. I’ll have a serving & share the rest with friends and family who’ll happily take the temptations out of my home. One friend has a pet potbelly pig who gets anything no one else will eat in case I’ve botched up a batch of something! I’m really enjoying your recipes! Thank you for any help you may be able to give!

Amazing! Makes 24 muffins/cupcakes too!5 stars
