Banana Cream Cheese Pound Cake

After meals, my eldest son will ask,"what's for dessert?" I will ask him what he want for dessert. Not that I alwyas have desserts at home everyday, in fact, it's vice versa. He will hunt for other snacks, like those leftover cookies from CNY or snacks from the kitchen cupboard. So, to prevent him from asking too much, I decided to bake a simple cake.

I decided to bake a Banana Cream Cheese Pound Cake, modified from Little Corner of Mine. The addition of banana to this original cream cheese pound cake makes it very fragrant, but not overpowering the cream cheese. It taste really soft and nice.
I'm also submitting this post to the Aspiring Bakers #5 Fruity March.

Hi HBS,
Hope you like the cake after you have tried.

Hi quizzine,
It was just trial & error. Luckily it turns out well. Btw, I used a just-ripe banana, which explains why the banana taste is not so overpowering.

Hi Bake for a Queen,
I'm glad I'm able to "feed" you visually. :p

Hi Meg & Judy,
As I explained, I used just ripen bananas. So the taste is not so strong. If you used very ripe bananas, the taste of the bananas might cover the cream cheese completely. Just thought I should let you know. Do try it though, I'm sure you'll like it.

Thanks Wendy.

Hi Jean,
It sure was very moist and soft.

Thanks Wen! Hope you'll like it!
