Banana Bread Mixture -

1. Soften butter in large bowl in microwave for 20-30 seconds; so that it can be easily mixed and combined with other ingredients.

Tip: When softening butter, I find that the butter will soften more evenly if I first slice the butter into several pieces before the softening process begins.

2. Add and mix in vanilla, egg, banana, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and mix together.

3. Add to the above, sugars, sour cream and mix well.

4. Add flour, mix well and set aside.

Cream Cheese Mixture –

1. Place cream cheese brick into a medium bowl and cut into 4-5 slices for an even softening and soften in microwave for about 20-30 seconds.

2. Add to that the rest of the cream cheese mixture ingredients and mix well.

Note: You will see some small cream cheese lumps in the mixture and that is fine because the cream cheese will melt once baked in the oven.

5. Spoon the cream cheese mixture into the bread loaf and spread evenly on top of the bottom half of the banana bread mixture.
