Banana Bread

6 Jul

This is a WONDERFUL banana bread! I can only take credit for baking and taking the pictures… the recipe is from Annie Grey. I do minus the pecans in the actual bread (so that my daughter can at least eat everything except the topping). Great idea for gifts as well!

3/4 cup butter, softened

1- 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened

2 cups sugar
