Pumpkin Banana Bread



About: After graduating with an AAS in culinary arts/restaurant management last spring I decided I really don't want to clean grills and deep fat fryers so I'm going cyber. I have many interests so I can play with...

Hmm, let's see, I have a little bit of left over pumpkin and one over ripe banana, what to do?  Ahh, pumpkin banana bread sounds like it might work.  Turns out it worked very well!

Step 1: Ingredient List

3/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup pumpkin
1 over ripe banana
1/4 cup milk
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
dash of nutmeg
dash of cloves
1 teaspoon cinnamon

9"x5" loaf pan

Step 2: Get Creamed

Cream together butter and sugar until well mixed 
Then add eggs and mix well

Step 3: Putting in the Good Stuff

Add the pumpkin and banana
Over ripe banana's break up pretty easily so I just used a spoon, small bits of banana are okay but you can use a mixer if you prefer a smoother batter.

Step 4: Finishing It Up

Now mix in the milk 
Stir in the flour and baking soda and mix well.
Add vanilla, nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon and mix well.

Step 5: Oven Ready

Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 50 - 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Step 6: Lets Eat!

Warm pumpkin banana bread with lots of butter melting on top, so tasty!
