For the Cream Cheese Mixture:

  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 4 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoon all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour (or line with parchment paper) a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
  2. Prepare the Banana Bread Batter:
    • In a large bowl, beat together 1 egg, brown sugar, vegetable or coconut oil, and vanilla extract until well combined.
    • Mix in the sour cream and mashed bananas.
    • Sift together the baking powder, baking soda, salt, and 1 cup of flour. Gradually add to the wet ingredients, stirring just until combined.
  3. Prepare the Cream Cheese Mixture:
    • In a separate bowl, beat together 1 egg, granulated sugar, softened cream cheese, and 3 tablespoons of flour until smooth and creamy.
  4. Assemble the Bread:
    • Pour half of the banana bread batter into the prepared loaf pan.
    • Gently spread the cream cheese mixture over the batter.
    • Top with the remaining banana bread batter, using a knife or spatula to swirl the cream cheese mixture slightly with the banana batter (optional).
  5. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.
  6. Cool and Serve:
    • Allow the bread to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
    • Slice and serve. The bread can be served warm or at room temperature.


  • Banana Ripeness: The riper the bananas, the sweeter and more flavorful your banana bread will be.
  • Mixing: Be careful not to overmix the batter after adding the flour to keep the bread tender.
  • Storage: This banana bread can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days or refrigerated for a bit longer shelf life.

Enjoy your Cream Cheese Banana Bread, a deliciously moist and flavorful treat that’s perfect for breakfast, a snack, or dessert!
