Cream Cheese Banana Bread

I am not a lover of bananas, but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE banana bread.  There isn't much to say about this recipe.  It is easy to mix up and the tastiest banana bread I have had in a very long time.  Next time you have some bananas that don't look so pretty try mixing up a batch of this. You won't be sorry.  ENJOY!

Cream Cheese Banana Bread
Recipe Source: A Thrifty Mom

3/4 cups softened butter
1 (8oz) cream cheese softened
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cups mashed bananas ( about 4 bananas)
1 cup pecans (optional)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

In a bowl combine the butter, cream cheese and sugar until well blended.  Add the two eggs and mix well.  Add the dry ingredients and mix until everything just comes together, you don't want to over mix it.  Add the bananas, nuts and vanilla.

Pour into a large greased bread pan or two small greased pans.  Bake at 350 F for about an hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  

**Cook's note: These make wonderful muffins too.  Just adjust your baking time.
