Banana cream cheese bread

Last two weeks were quite busy!! I got into my usual routine of morning walks. And then the kids exam where I had to attend to and then the Ganesh chaturthi pooja. I did cook a elaborate fare for Ganesh chaturthi. You would have seen it in my instagram if you are following it. I have tried to do some baking atleast once every week. I prefer serving homemade bakes during the teatime to my kids instead of store bought biscuits and cookies which they love to devour on.

Recipe courtesy – Just a taste

This particular bread happened when I had the abundance of all the required ingredients. I had seen this recipe recently and I love it as it was a bit unusual than rest of the banana breads we usually bake. I had bought some cream cheese couple of months ago and I had to use them. I still have some more left and will be sharing some more bakes with it shortly. I had some very ripe bananas which were also quite perfect for this recipe. I had frozen a couple of bananas which were left over after the prayer we had sometime ago. I made some minor changes to the recipe. I used a bit of whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour. And also some yogurt instead of egg in the cream cheese filling as I thought it would have a eggy taste to to it.

The resultant cake was simply delicious. I and hubby just loved the taste of tangy cream cheese filling in midst of the banana cake. My kid loved it too though he is not too fond of the cream cheese. But he liked the  banana bread portion more. I hope you all try this and enjoy it just as we did!! And do leave your feedback if you do bake!!

  1. For banana bread Preheat the oven to 180c. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and then grease with butter. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours,sugar, salt and baking soda. In another bowl, whisk together the bananas, eggs, buttermilk,melted butter and vanilla essence.
  2. Add the wet ingredients mixture to the dry ingredients and mix untill well combined into a uniform mixture. Set the batter aside. Next to make the cream cheese mixture, add cream cheese,yogurt,sugar and flour and whisk together till well combined.
  3. Add 1/2 of the banana bread batter to the prepared loaf pan. Add dollops of cream cheese filling and lightly spread them over the banana bread batter. Add the remaining banana bread batter. Add the remaining cream cheese filling and make swirls on the top with a knife. Bake the bread for 50 to 60 minutes until the top is set. If the top is browning too much, place an aluminium foil on the top and continue baking. Remove the bread from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then remove with the help of parchment paper hanging on the sides and cool it completely on a wire rack. Slice and serve.
