Banana Pumpkin Bread

I stole this recipe from a friend of mine~ Pumpkin Bread with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting~ ah YUM

BUT, I only had 3/4 cup of pumpkin left after I made these last week… Pumpkin Blondies with Cinnamon & White Chocolate Chips. Don’t try these blondies unless you have someone to share with! They are just TOO good! Seriously. Steve & I ate the entire 9×13 pan by ourselves in 3 days. Yeah, I probably shouldn’t admit things like that online!

SO I had to improvise just a bit… and add in some banana!! It was a stunning success 🙂 I had to bake it longer than the original recipe called for~ but it was perfect when it came out of the oven at an hour & 15 minutes. Serve with some honey butter for a real treat!

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup mashed banana
  • 2 eggs

  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. nutmeg
  • 1/2 t. ground cloves

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix first five ingredients thoroughly, then add in the rest of ingredients and mix until combined. Pour into a  9×5 loaf pan sprayed with Pam.  Bake 1 hour -1 hour & 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
