Pumpkin Banana Bread a Fall Treat

Pumpkin Banana Bread a Fall Treat

Last year colse to this time, I got a new recipe for Pumpkin Banana Bread once baked and tasted, seeing it a success, it was shared and enjoyed by many of our autumnal visitors. There are several options seen below and the recipes are great, we've tried them All!

I also made several Pumpkin Banana Loaves for Halloween and on Mischief Night when the children came visiting for 'Trick or Treat' instead of the usual candies I give out, the children received slices of Pumpkin Banana Bread which I had wrapped in foil and then located in cake slice boxes (you can get these from Joann's or Michael's).

Banana Cake

I had decorated the cake slice boxes with the Halloween theme; witches, skeletons, spiders which added fun and laughter to the night. Perhaps, I should tell you that we even had some 'double dippers' for a second helping, so be warned! I also attached the recipe to the cake box so that their Moms could identify any known allergies before consumption! Plus, they too could also bake and enjoy as they would have the recipe.

Pumpkin Banana Bread


1 1/3 Cup Canned Pumpkin
2 Ripe Mashed Bananas
2 Eggs
1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
1/2 Cup Honey
1/2 Cup Sugar
1Teaspoon Ground cinnamon
2 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
2 Teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
3/4 Raisins (Optional)
3/4 Walnuts (Optional)

1. Use 1 Cup Whole-wheat plus 1 1/2 cup All Purpose Flours
2. Use 3/4 Cup of Sunflower Seeds instead of Raisins (or split the difference)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, stir together the mashed bananas, eggs, oil, pumpkin, honey and sugar. In another bowl, integrate the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice and the cinnamon, stir into the banana compound until just combined. Fold in the raisins and walnuts if using. Pour the batter into the ready loaf tin. Bake at 350 degree F for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the town of the loaf comes out clean. Cool loaf in pan for 10 minutes before provocative onto a wire rack to cool completely.
