    Cinnamon Swirl Cream Cheese Banana Bread

    I sure do love a good quick bread recipe and this one immediately became an instant favorite!  I had some over ripe bananas and my favorite thing to do is to make a fresh loaf of banana bread.  But when you add in a cinnamon swirl, a cream cheese center, and walnuts, you are about to take your banana bread to the next level!

    You start with making a simple banana bread mixture.  Then you add the cinnamon sugar swirl and fill it with cream cheese.  This is my favorite because its like a cheesecake center right in the middle of each bite!  The top of the bread gets this delicious cinnamon sugar crust as it bakes and it comes out perfectly moist and tender!
