Ingredients

Scale

Cake

  • 8 ounce package of cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 C butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 C sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 C mashed ripe bananas, about 3 medium
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 C all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt

Topping

  • 1 C chopped pecans
  • 2 Tb dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula.  Mix in the bananas and vanilla.  Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Mix into the batter just until combined.  Do not overmix!
  2. In a small bowl, combine all the topping ingredients.  Add half of the topping to the cake batter and gently fold in.  Pour the batter into a greased 9 x 13 cake pan.  Sprinkle on the remaining topping and bake for 25 – 30 minutes, until light touch in the center springs back.  Cool on a wire rack.  Drizzle on a powdered sugar glaze if desired (1 1/2 C powdered sugar, dash of salt, dash of vanilla and enough milk to allow the glaze to drizzle off your spoon.)
