Deliciocity Friday: Unbelievable Banana Bread

Peanut butter cream cheese filled chocolate chip banana bread.

Yeah, I'm going to let you think on that for a moment...

It's like all the best things together in one.

I started with a simple banana bread recipe.
 Then added the filling into a well cut out of the middle of the bread loaf.

Bread Ingredients:
1/2 stick butter, softened
2 eggs
  2/3 cup sugar

1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

3 very ripe bananas
1/2 cup chocolate chips

First blend all the wet ingredients with a mixer.
In another bowl mix the dry ingredients then slowly mix them into the wet ingredients.
Lastly fold the mashed bananas and chocolate chips into the batter.

I poured these into well greased little loaf pans and I think baked about 25 minutes. A regular sized loaf pan would probably bake for closer to 50 minutes.
When you stick a clean tooth pick in it should come back out clean.

Once done baking I turned out onto a cooling rack and when cooled I cut into the top to create a well for the filling.

8oz cream cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
(peanut butter was a guesstimate based on taste)

Blend all together, you want a slightly thick but creamy filling so adjust the peanut butter for best look and taste.

Pour into the well in the loaf then cut off the top that you cut out and replace.

It is unbelievable how creamy and delicious this turns out!
