Cream Cheese Filling

  • 1 large egg
  • 4 oz softened cream cheese
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour

Cream Cheese Banana Bread Instructions

1. Preheat your oven to 350˚F/180˚C.

2. Mash bananas in a mixing bowl, then add in eggs, brown sugar, white sugar, butter, vanilla extract and Greek yogurt. Mix until blended well.
3. Add in flour, salt, and baking soda. Mix in until well combined and smooth batter.
4. Now you’ll make the cream, cheese filling. In a separate bowl, mix the egg, cream cheese, sugar, and flour together until well combined.
5. Grease your 9×5-inch loaf pan. Pour half the banana bread batter into the pan,  and spread it to make it even. Then add the entire bowl of cream cheese filling and spread to completely cover the bottom layer of bread. Pour the rest of the banana bread batter over the top.
6. Bake in preheated oven for about 40-50 minutes. You can test for doneness by inserting a toothpick in the center and seeing if it comes out clean – when it comes out with no batter on it, the bread is done.
7. Allow your loaf to cool at least 15 minutes before slicing.
8. Remove from pan, slice and enjoy! Want more? Check out our popular Banana Cakes Post that is filled with all our favorite recipes. You can view here
