Recipe: Banana Cream Cheese Muffins

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.

A pandemic escape!

Amy and her staff are incredible. The attention to detail is hands down the best. Given all that is going on in this Covid-19 world, we felt safe and comfortable. Check-in was contactless. Our room was perfect. The breakfasts were wonderful and loved the cookies in the afternoon. The icing on the cake was Sweet Pea, Amy's dog, an absolute love! Amy, thank you, we'll be back!

Outstanding getaway!

This was our second time staying at this lovely inn. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the grounds are both spacious and tranquil. There is even a pool which is an excellent way to cool off after a day exploring the nearby trails or bike path. The breakfasts are creative and delicious and very filling. Amy, the owner and innkeeper is wonderful. She takes great care of the property and is so welcoming to her guests. She is very gracious in helping with advice on what to do in the area and making dinner reservations. We were among her first guests as Massachusetts began to "open up" during the Covid 19 crisis. She took great care to assure that everything was done to make her guests safe and comfortable. We look forward to returning.

A very enjoyable and relaxing stay

We had another wonderful experience here at Brewster By The Sea.  Lovely walks on the Flats and enjoying the local food!  In spite of COVID, Amy & staff helped us feel SAFE and at home!
