INGREDIENTS:

The Bread:
• ¾ cup (170 g) salted butter, softened to room temperature


• 8 ounces (227 g) cream cheese, light or regular, softened to room temperature


• 1 ½ cups (318 g) granulated sugar


• 2 large eggs


• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


• 1 cup (about 226 g) mashed ripe bananas, about 3 large bananas


• 3 cups (426 g) of all-purpose flour


• 1 teaspoon baking powder


• ½ teaspoon baking soda


• ½ teaspoon salt


• ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon


• ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Topping:


• 1 tablespoon salted butter
• 1 tablespoon flour
• ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
• 1 teaspoon cinnamon

INSTRUCTIONS:


• Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two 8 1/2- by 4 1/2-inch loaf pans with cooking spray and set aside.


• In a large bowl, cream together the butter, cream cheese, and sugar until very light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Beat in the eggs one at a time, vanilla, and bananas.


• In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined.


• In a small bowl, mash together the topping ingredients until combined and crumbly.


• Divide the batter evenly among the prepared loaf pans. Sprinkle with the topping.


• Bake for 50-60 minutes until the bread is nicely domed and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.


• Remove from the oven and let rest in the pans for 5-10 minutes before turning out on a cooling rack to cool completely.
