Banana Cream Cheese Bread with Streusel Walnut Topping

I don't know why, but  we are in America addicted to banana breads. Every time I have bananas I have to try a new recipe. Here is one more recipe for my collection of banana breads.

Banana Cream Cheese Bread with Streusel Walnut Topping

2-1/4 cups  flour
1-1/2 tsp.  Baking Powder
1/2 tsp.  baking soda
1 pkg.  (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1/4 cup  butter, softened
1 cup  sugar
1 cup  mashed fully ripe bananas (about 3)
2 eggs
1 cup  chopped Walnuts
HEAT oven to 350°F.
Mix flour, baking powder and baking soda. Beat cream cheese, butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add bananas and eggs; mix well. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing well after each addition. Stir in nuts.
POUR into greased and floured 9x5-inch loaf pan.
BAKE 1 hour 10 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 min.; remove from pan to wire rack. Cool completely.

Streusel Topping
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
