This morning two brown bananas on the counter were
just begging to become banana bread...
But I was also in the mood for cheesecake,
(I'm basically always in the mood for cheesecake)
So I came up with this Blueberry Banana Bread
with Cream Cheese Swirl.
(The blueberries were just sort of an an afterthought
and probably the best idea ever!)
Here's what you'll need:
1/2 CUP BROWN SUGAR
1/4 CUP VEGETABLE OIL
1/4 CUP APPLE SAUCE
1/4 CUP LITE SOUR CREAM
2 TEASPOONS VANILLA
1 CUP BANANAS (MASHED)
1 CUP FRESH BLUEBERRIES
1 CUP FLOUR
1/2 TEASPOON BAKING POWDER
1/2 TEASPOON BAKING SODA
PINCH OF SALT
And for the Cream Cheese Swirl
4 OZ. CREAM CHEESE
1/4 CUP SUGAR
3 TABLESPOONS FLOUR
Preheat oven to 350, grease and flour loaf pan.
Combine egg, brown sugar, oil, apple sauce, sour cream and vanilla
in a large bowl with a wire wisk until smooth.
With a spatula fold in the rest of the bread ingredients.
Pour 2/3 of the bread mix into the loaf pan.
(See: Step One)
Next mix cream cheese swirl ingredients until smooth.
Pour cream cheese mixture on top of bread mix in loaf pan.
(See: Step Two)
Then carefully pour the remainder of the bread mix
over the cream cheese layer.
(See: Step Three)
Bake 45-60 minutes until toothpick is inserted in center
and comes out clean.
Allow bread to cool in pan for 10 minutes.
