It's Fall... which means all things pumpkin! And that's no different here in the Thayer household. Here is my recipe for Pumpkin Banana Bread!
Pumpkin Banana Bread
yields 2 loaves
3 medium ripe bananas
2 c pumpkin puree, unsweetened
2/3 c canola oil
1 c cane sugar
3 c all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp kosher salt
3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and grease 2 loaf pans.
In a mixing bowl, mash bananas; then add eggs, pumpkin puree, oil, sugar, and mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices.
Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mixing as you go along.
Once well combined, divide batter between 2 loaf pans.
Bake 45 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clear.
Cool and Enjoy!
Try warmed slices stopped with a little butter, or peanut butter... or simply with a cup of pumpkin spice coffee!
