Recipe: Banana Cream Cheese Muffins

We receive compliments on these Banana Cream Cheese Muffins every time we serve them, so I was recently inspired by a guest to include it as this month’s recipe. The original recipe for Banana Bread was graciously given to me from Donna, the previous owner, and I understand it came from her Mom, “Nanna”. We modified it a bit by turning it into a muffin recipe, and added the cream cheese, which is baked right into the muffin. Mmmmmm – another perfect pairing – banana muffin and cream cheese.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 8 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 over ripe bananas, mashed (the blacker the bananas the more flavorful the
  • muffins).
  • 2 cups flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 12 cubes of cream cheese – about ½ inch in size.
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees, and grease muffin tin with butter.
  2. Cream together the sugar and butter; add eggs and bananas and mix well.
  3. Sift together the flour, soda and salt; add to butter mixture and mix just until blended.
  4. Spoon the batter into muffin cups, until about 2/3 full.
  5. Place a cube of cream cheese on top of batter, pushing it into batter about half way.
  6. Bake about 20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Stay at the Inn By the Sea, Brewster

This Valentine’s weekend 2020 I chose Brewster and the Cape to propose to my fiance! I could not have picked a better inn to stay at. In all ways the Inn by the Sea is warm, comforting, and fun for all ages. Amy helped plan my post proposal fun secretly with chocolate covered strawberries, flowers, champagne, and mimosas in the morning!! Thank you Amy and staff for an amazing, memorable trip!

Great Amy is a great innkeeper. Breakfast was great a healthy and decadent choice. We had both outstanding. Are going back again this weekend. Our room was great both a fireplace and nice sitting area.

A very enjoyable and relaxing stay

This inn is always very satisfactory and the owner pays a lot of attention to detail. The breakfasts are so wonderful and the rooms are beautiful and relaxing. This is our second time here and we enjoyed it thoroughly.
