Thought banana bread couldn’t get any better? Try this riff on our original banana bread recipe by adding cream cheese in big, bold swirls.
It’s no secret that we love banana bread here at Simply Recipes. Our original banana bread has been baked all over the world, we have other versions that feature peanut butter and chocolate, and even a vegan version.
As I started to dive deeper into the site, I realized we didn’t have a cream cheese version and I couldn’t sleep until we had one up. Why? Because cream cheese and banana bread are basically best friends, don’t you know? The creamy texture of the cream cheese mixture complements the banana bread so well and adds a depth of flavor that will make you swoon.
