banana cream cheese bread

This is my husbands grandma Huber's recipe and it is one of our favorites and I am so glad I got it before she passed in 2006. It is really easy, I don't ever make it with nuts because my kids are allergic and they just love it!

1 (8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup mashed bananas
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease and flour a 9x5-in. loaf pan. Cream softened cream cheese, sugar and butter, blending well. Blend in bananas, vanilla extract and eggs. Combine dry ingredients and add to banana mixture, mixing just until moistened. Fold in nuts. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan. Cool on rack. Serve warm with butter :)
