Banana Bread Batter

  •  1/2 cup melted unsalted butter, plus more for greasing the loaf pan (1 stick or 4 oz. butter)
  •  1 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting the loaf pan
  •  1 teaspoon baking soda
  •  1/4 teaspoon salt
  •  3/4 cup sugar
  •  1/4 cup buttermilk
  •  1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  •  2 large eggs plus 1 large egg yolk, divided
  •  3 ripe bananas (about 480 g)

Cream Cheese Filling

  •  4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  •  2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  •  2 tablespoons sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350° and butter and flour a 9″-x-5″ loaf pan. In a bowl, mash the bananas with a masher. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together 1 cup flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • In another large bowl, combine 3/4 cup sugar, melted butter, buttermilk, vanilla extract, 1 egg and 1 egg yolk and mix until smooth. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients above and stir until combined, then fold in the mashed bananas.
  • Make Cream Cheese Filling: In a small bowl, stir together the remaining 1 egg, cream cheese, and 2 tablespoons flour and 2 tablespoons sugar.
  • Transfer half the batter to the loaf pan. Dollop the Cream Cheese Filling on top and smooth in an even layer with a spatula. Top with the remaining batter.
  • Bake until deeply golden and a toothpick comes out clean, 1 hour. Let cool at least 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
