directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F Place 3/4 cup pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet, and bake 12 to 15 minutes or until toasted and fragrant, stirring after 6 minutes.
  • Beat butter and cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.
  • Combine whole wheat flour and next 4 ingredients; gradually add to butter mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed just until blended after each addition. Stir in bananas, 3/4 cup toasted pecans, and vanilla. Spoon batter into 2 greased and floured 8- x 4-inch loaf pans. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup pecans.
  • Bake at 350°F for 1 hour or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean and sides of bread pull away from pan, shielding with aluminum foil during last 15 minutes to prevent excessive browning, if necessary. Cool bread in pans on wire racks 10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks. Let cool 30 minutes.

    This was good, but a bit denser than I anticipated. I used 2 9X4 glass loaf pans so I baked @ 325 for 1 hour 25 minutes. The extended baking time and pan size may have been part of the problem :( . I will try this again, when I have more bananas :). Thanks for sharing, cookin_nurse! Made for Fall PAC '09.

    It's very good and very moist (made yesterday evening, left out overnight because I forgot to put them away--and not a bit dried out this morning), and pretty rich as banan bread goes, but I think maybe the use of both buttermilk and cream cheese is a little over the top for me. I'll probably stick to recipes that use one or the other in the future.
