Cream Cheese Filled Banana Bread

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!

I’ve talked about my love for non-yeast bread recipes before. They’re usually super easy, and we are always on the hunt for the yummiest recipes. My mom was able to find one – yet again!

This next recipe comes from Just a Pinch. She made only a few modifications, including adding a little more cream cheese, cooking it a little less and also making 1 loaf with nuts, and one without (obviously, if you love nuts – leave them in, if not – leave them out!) 😉 The recipe was darn right delicious, as you could only expect with sour cream, cream cheese, cinnamon/sugar on top. It’s definitely a new favorite, and we can’t wait to make it again.

If you love Banana bread, you’ll definitely want to try this Cream Cheese Filled Banana Bread. It takes regular Banana Bread to that next great yummy level of goodness!

    Can we leave out the sour cream?

  4. 6

    Does this have to be stored in the fridge after baking because of the cream cheese?

    Made it today, turned out so good, half of the cake was gone before i had a chance to sprinkle some powder sugar on it. My boys loved them :) here are the changes I made. I used two large bananas instead. I substituted sour cream for plain yogurt. And I totally skipped the sugar topping. It was just yummmyyy. Thank you for sharing.
