Mix 1 cup sugar, butter & 2 eggs. Add bananas, salt, the soda dissolved in sour cream, vanilla & 2 cups flour. Mix well and add nuts. Divide 1/2 of this mixture into 2 greased & floured loaf pans.
Combine cream cheese mixture ingredients and spread over mixture in pans. Spread remaining banana bread batter on top.
Note: I like to sprinkle a few extra nuts on top or sprinkle top with 1 tablespoon sugar mixed with 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon before baking. Makes a nice crunchy top. But that's totally optional.
Bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 1 hour. Test for doneness.
Cool and slice. Makes a lovely presentation.
