For the loaf
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x5 loaf pan and set aside.

  4. Bake for about 55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Allow the loaf to cool completely before frosting.
Frosting
  1. In a bowl add the softened cream cheese and powdered sugar and vanilla.
  2. Mix on low speed until everything is incorporated and fluffy.
