Ingredients

  • ¾

    cup butter, softened

  • 1

    package (8 ounce) cream cheese, softened

  • 2

    cup sugar

  • 2

    large eggs

  • 3

    cup all-purpose flour

  • ½

    teaspoon baking powder

  • ½

    teaspoon baking soda

  • ½

    teaspoon salt

  • cups mashed bananas (about 4 medium bananas)

  • 1

    cup roughly chopped pecans, toasted

  • ½

    teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Beat butter and cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; gradually add to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended. Stir in bananas, pecans, and vanilla. Spoon batter into 2 greased and floured 8x4 inch loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 1 hour or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean and sides pull away from pan, shielding with aluminum foil last 15 minutes to prevent browning, if necessary. I found that after one hour, my banana bread wasn't completely cooked through. I ended up baking it for an extra 10-15 minutes. Cool bread in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove from pans, and cool 30 minutes on wire racks before slicing.
