More Banana Bread

I have some weird addiction to finding new banana bread recipes, I found some great ones that I will make repeatedly but I still have a desire to find even better recipes. This recipe has a layer of brown sugar and nuts in the middle and it taste similar to the sugar coated nuts that are sold at festivals. Little Foodie and my hubby have asked for this every morning for breakfast and I hid one loaf in the freezer. I adapted this recipe form one found on Enjoy!
  • 1/2 cup margarine, softened
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4-5 mashed bananas
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  1. Cream the butter or margarine and cream cheese together. Gradually add the white sugar, and continue beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the mashed bananas, vanilla and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Add flour, baking powder, and soda; mix until batter is just moist.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together chopped pecans, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon.
  3. Divide 1/2 batter into two greased and floured 8x4 inch loaf pans. Sprinkle pecan mixture over batter in pans, and top with remaining batter.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
