YIELD: 2 loaves




  • Preheat oven to 350°F and grease and flour 2 8x4 inch loaf pans.
  • Make bread batter by beating butter and cream cheese at medium speed with electric mixer until creamy.
  • Add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs, beating until just blended.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in another bowl. Gradually add this to butter mixture, stirring just until blended.
  • Stir in bananas, pecans, and vanilla. Pour batter into pans.
  • Make streusel by combining the flour and brown sugar in a small bowl. Cut in the butter and peanut butter with a pastry blender or fork until the mixture resembles small peas.
  • Sprinkle the mixture over the batter, and bake for 1 hour, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. If necessary, shield the top with foil for last 15 minutes to prevent browning.
  • Cool bread in pans for 10 minutes, remove from pan, and allow to cool on a wire rack for another 30 minutes.
