Banana Bread is something that I make 1 or 2 loaves of at least 3 to 4 times a month! I am happy to say that they don’t all get consumed by my family as at least 75% of them are enjoyed by my coworkers 🙂
Does anyone else have the “banana” issues that I have? If I don’t buy bananas, the family complains that there are no bananas. And when I buy bananas, they eat a couple and the rest are pushed to a corner and left to rot! That is how my banana bread are born every single time!
Thinking maybe this is a family conspiracy to make me make Banana Bread nearly every week, but wouldn’t it be just easier to tell me?
Anyway, today is one of those days where 3 very unhappy bananas were staring at me when I came back from work. To which I added 3 more not so unhappy ones to make a 2 loaves.
Banana Bread is just fabulous on its own, but my adventurous spirit and always looking for something different crazy brain decided that today we needed a little twist. And can you think of anything better than a cheesecake/banana bread combo?
So with that thought in mind, I prepared my banana bread the usual way and then mixed the following ingredients to make a cheesecake filling in the middle of it.
- 8oz of cream cheese
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 1 egg
- 3 tbsp of flour
- 1 tbsp of vanilla extract
Once I got the above nicely mixed I layered half the mixture of my banana bread into the mold, followed by the cream cheese mixture and then topped with the rest of the banana bread mixture.
The result is a fabulously moist banana bread with a big fat vein running through it of a luscious cheesecake consistency filling! Now how is that for a change?
This week everyone got lucky, as one of them is staying home (had to slice it to take a pic) and the pretty one is going to work <3
