Pumpkin Banana Bread Recipe

Pin It
Autumn is my favorite time of year.  I love all the fun holidays, the cool weather, the leaves changing colors and  of course Pumpkin in my cooking!  What is it about pumpkin that is so amazing and delicious?  I love the way it smells, the way it looks, the way it tastes, and everything that can be cooked with it.  I have a lot of fun pumpkin ideas for this fall!!  So excited!  I'm always looking for a supreme banana bread recipe.  This recipe had a nice flavor but it was a little dry.  I liked it but I'm not sure it will be the winner of my whole life. 

You will need Salt, Ground Ginger, Baking powder, Sugar, 2 Very ripe Bananas, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Flour (I used half White and half Whole Wheat), Eggs, Baking Soda, Brown Sugar, Pumpkin Puree, and Canola Oil.

In a large bowl combine the Flour, Baking Powder, Ground Ginger, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Baking Soda, & Salt.  Mix together very well.

In a separate bowl combine the Bananas, Canola Oil, Eggs, Sugar, and Brown Sugar.

Add in the lovely Pumpkin puree.  Make sure it is not the canned Pumpkin Pie mixture just the plain Pumpkin.

Beat everything together really well.
Slowly combine the Flour into the Pumpkin mixture.  This is a great job for you little helper.

There we go...all ready for the dance.

Split the dough into two Bread pans that have been greased and Floured.  Bake at 350 Degrees 55-60 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.

Allow to cool in the pan on cooling racks about ten minutes.

Then remove the bread and allow to cool completely.

Oh boy!
I liked this with just a bit of butter.  Enjoy!
