8 ounces cream cheese (softened)
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup mashed bananas
2 eggs
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan.

Combine cream cheese, sugar and butter, mixing until well blended. Blend in bananas and eggs. Add combined remaining ingredients, mixing just until moistened. Pour into prepared loaf pan.
