Blueberry Cheesecake Banana Loaf

I didn't even mean to hit the CAPS key but it got my point across stunningly!

Blueberry cream cheese frosting running through a banana loaf? ummm why had I not discovered this earlier?? Is it wrong that I want it as my wedding cake/loaf? Wedding coaf...?

I was so cruel to William this morning, I baked the loaf (of dreams) then had to teach a piano lesson so banished him upstairs, then my camera ran out of battery so he had to wait for me to take pictures, then I realised I hadn't switched on the charger, then he had to go to the gym. So now I've taken my snaps and am awaiting his return and 2 slices have already accidentally fallen in my mouth...

he better hurry up....

it's staring at me again...

now I've ruined my dinner.

I got complete inspiration for this cream cheese filling from Averie Cooks (she's a cooking goddess). Definitely check out her blog if you like food...which is everyone. Everyone check out her blog.

I've used my own scrummy banana bread recipe, incorporated Averie's genius cream cheese filling and added blueberries because...well I love blueberries! It's the perfect combination between fluffy and moist with added creaminess and little bursts of juiciness when the blueberries pop in your mouth.

What you'll need // for the bread

120g softened butter
150g light brown sugar
2 eggs
2 very ripe bananas (the mushier the better)
2 tbsp natural yogurt
250g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
half tsp cinnamon
pinch salt
couple drops vanilla extract
handful blueberries

// for the cream cheese

1 egg
110g cream cheese
55g granulated sugar
3 tbsp flour (I used self raising)
big handful blueberries

What to do//

Preheat oven to 180 degrees (fan) // 350F

Grease you loaf tin and lightly dust with flour. Set aside.

Cream together butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, yogurt and vanilla extract.

Sift in your flour, baking powder, cinnamon & salt and mix well. Mush your bananas in a bowl and add to the mixture along with a handful of blueberries.

Spoon half the mixture into your loaf tin and push into the corners until even & flat ish.

Now for the cheesecake layer :) In a clean bowl mix together your egg, flour, sugar, cream cheese and blueberries until well blended. Pour onto your loaf mixture.

Add remaining loaf mixture trying not to disturb your cream cheese river too much! I wasn't overly successful with this!

As you can probably tell I was a little over generous with my bottom loaf layer! But it all tastes the same in the end right?

Bake for 35 mins and leave to cool on a wire rack.

Safe to say I really enjoyed making this loaf and think it will become a tea time favourite. William definitely approved and is happily munching away on his slice, accompanied by a cup of Yorkshire tea. I might try some different types of cheesecake filling next time...maybe raspberry & white choccie cheesecake? Any suggestions?

Happy Saturdays everyone!
