Recipe For Pumpkin Banana Bread


There are so many possibilities when it comes to pumpkin. It mixes with other fruits pretty well, too. I have made pumpkin apple muffins. I have made orange pumpkin pie. This time, I combined it with bananas in a bread. What other fruits have you seen pumpkin paired with?

My bread pan was too big for this recipe. Actually, I think it would have been better made into two mini loaves. Not that the bread was dry or anything. It was just short. I find short quick breads annoying. It’s like they are trying to be cute and mini, but they just can’t pull it off. I guess I am a bit of a quick bread snob.
