1 (8 ox.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1-1/4 c. sugar
2 large eggs
1-1/2 c. mashed ripe bananas (about 4 medium)

Preheat oven to 325º and spray two 8-1/2 X 4-1/2 X 2-1/2 inch loaf pans with nonstick cooking spray.


Cream butter and cream cheese in a large bowl with electric mixer. Gradually add sugar; continue beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in mashed bananas and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder and baking soda, stirring just until moistened. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl.


Pour half of batter into prepared pans; sprinkle with half of nut mixture. Repeat layers and bake for 45 minutes. Tent loosely with foil and bake for 15 minutes more or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
