“Whew! That is some title. The peanut butter topping on this is outstanding. My bananas were very sweet and ripe, so I was able to get away with less sugar in the batter (I used the full amount in the topping though). From Southern Living.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease and flour 2 8x4 inch loaf pans.
  2. Make bread batter by beating butter and cream cheese at medium speed with electric mixer until creamy.
  3. Add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs, beating until just blended.
  4. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in another bowl. Gradually add this to butter mixture, stirring just until blended.
  5. Stir in bananas, pecans, and vanilla. Pour batter into pans.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Cool bread in pans for 10 minutes, remove from pan, and allow to cool on a wire rack for another 30 minutes.
