Cream Cheese Filled Banana Bread
 
 
Serves: 9x5" loaf pan
Ingredients
  • 1 large egg
  • 90g light brown sugar, packed
  • 50ml liquid-state coconut oil (canola or vegetable or melted butter may be substituted)
  • 50g sour cream (Greek yogurt may be substituted)
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3-4 berangan bananas)
  • 150g self-raising flour (If using all-purpose flour, add ½ tsp baking powder and ½ tsp baking soda)
  • pinch salt, optional and to taste
Cream Cheese Filling
  • 1 large egg
  • 125g cream cheese
  • ¼ cup caster sugar
  • 15g all-purpose flour
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 175C. Spray one 9x5-inch loaf pan with floured cooking spray, or grease and flour the pan; set aside.
  2. To make Banana Bread - In a large bowl, add the egg, brown sugar, coconut oil, sour cream, brown sugar, vanilla, and whisk to combine. Add the bananas and stir to incorporate.
  3. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, optional salt, and fold with spatula or stir gently with a spoon until just combined; don't overmix; set aside.
  4. Turn about two-thirds of the batter out into the prepared pan, smoothing the top lightly with a spatula and pushing it into corners and sides as necessary; set aside in the fridge.
  5. To make the Cream Cheese Filling - In a large bowl, add all ingredients and whisk to combine. Alternatively, mix with a hand mixer.
  6. Evenly pour filling mixture over the bread, smoothing the top lightly with a spatula and pushing it into corners and sides as necessary.
  7. Top with remaining batter, smoothing the top very lightly with a spatula as to not disturb cream cheese layer and pushing batter into corners and sides as necessary.
  8. Bake for about 48 to 50 minutes or until the top is domed, golden, and the center is set, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, or with a few moist crumbs, but no batter.
  9. Note this is tricky because the cream cheese never gets totally solid so the toothpick test isn't the most accurate.
  10. Allow bread to cool in pan for about 15 minutes before turning out on a wire rack to cool completely before slicing and serving.
