Hungry for fall flavors?

You should totally try this pumpkin banana bread! I baked for some friends, so didn't eat any myself :-( but it made the house smell delicious!


1 1/2 c. sugar
3/4 c. butter
3 eggs
1 c. canned pumpkin (I used about 1/2 cup more to enhance the pumpkin flavor and color)
2 med. ripe bananas (I used 3 for a more banana-y flavor)
3 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 c. chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine sugar, butter, and eggs. Beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add pumpkin and mashed bananas; continue beating until mixed (mixture will have curdled appearance). Add remaining ingredients except nuts; mix until moistened. Stir in nuts.

Spread into 2 greased 8x4 loaf pans. Bake 50-60 minutes or until wooden pick in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 5 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely.

If you try it, let me know if you like the recipe!
