Cream Cheese Banana Nut Bread from Southern Living magazine ~ Says: This is quite honestly some of the best Banana Nut Bread that I've ever had. An entire 8oz. package of cream cheese is added right to the batter, along with 4 mashed bananas. The cream cheese adds so much to this recipe, with an incredibly moist texture being the main component. Plus, the roasted pecans are the perfect addition. Roasting the nuts brings out their natural oils and adds SO much flavor...Don't skip this step!
