I'm not big on making banana bread, but when you can jazz it up as with this recipe, that's a whole other matter ~ What with cream cheese, cranberries (I opted for dried rather than the frozen) & whole wheat flour, THIS BREAD IS ABSOLUTELY GREAT! Was gonna keep the 2nd loaf & freeze it, but my son & his wife managed to talk me out of it! Will happily make this bread again & again! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game]
