  • In a large bowl cream with a mixer the butter, cream cheese and sugar until creamy and fluffy.
  • Add eggs one at a time. Beat in bananas and vanilla.
  • Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, and add gradually to the creamy mixture. Fold in one cup pecans.
  • Transfer to two greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Sprinkle with remaining pecans.
  • Bake at 350 F for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • In a small bowl whisk together orange zest, juice and honey. Drizzle over loaves after cooling the loaves for 10 minutes. I like to double the orange glaze and drizzle some over each piece served.
