Banana Bread with Cheesecake Filling

Banana Bread with Cheesecake Filling

I’ve seen a video of this recipe floating on my Facebook feed and I was like..”whoa why didn’t I think of that?!” Cheesecake and banana bread…enough said. I have got to try it.

Someone added some cinnamon sugar topping on their version of this and I liked that idea a lot since I’m so into cinnamon so I added it too. I was planning to add a streusel topping BUT I think the cheesecake filling added more than enough calories on this banana bread than my conscience and waistline  can take.  I’ll be sure to finish maybe half of it in one sitting if I add streusel topping (no, no, no..NO!) The cinnamon sugar is just perfect. :)

So, here it is without much ado.

Happy Baking! :)

Combine egg, sugars, oil in a bowl. Add the mashed bananas. Mix Well

 

Pour about 2/3 of the batter into the prepared loaf pan
Pour in the filling
and top with the remaining batter
Bake for 50 minutes to an hour
Rest for a few minutes before inverting onto a wire rack to cool.
Enjoy :)
