Again, I made a wonderful recipe from Jennifer at Cooking for Comfort. Everything I've tried has been great so far! This is another yummy one! Thanks, Jennifer! I had a piece straight from the oven....awesomely delicious!
I made 1 large and 2 small loaves. They are a must to make again!
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 cups sugar
3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
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 a low speed until just blended. Stir in mashed banana, pecans and vanilla. Spoon batter into 2 greased 8×4 inch loaf pans or 5 mini loaf pans.
Bake at 350 for one hour(8×4 pans) OR 45 minutes for mini loaves, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached.
