Pumpkin Banana Bread

Quick, somebody stop me.  I am addicted to pumpkin recipes.  Seriously, I've got 30 recipes listed in the "search recipes by theme" pumpkin category and I don't even think that it's a complete list.

I've made pumpkin breads and rolls, pumpkin cakes and cupcakes, pumpkin pies and cookies, all sorts of pumpkin desserts, pumpkin oatmeal and pumpkin dips, pumpkin cream cheese, pumpkin pancakes and even pumpkin lattes and smoothies!  I think I have a serious pumpkin problem. 

These are some of my favorite pumpkin recipes:

Pumpkin Pull Apart Bread

Pumpkin Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin Chocolate Cheesecake Bars

Pumpkin Crescent Rolls

I'm not sure whether this will be good news or bad news to you but the pumpkin recipes for 2013 have only just begun!  I found this recipe for pumpkin banana bread on hopeineveryseason.com.  I had some leftover pumpkin in my frig and 2 perfectly rips bananas on the counter - how could I NOT make this bread?  The recipe makes 2 loaves of pumpkin banana bread but I cut it in half and made just 1 loaf. 

Pumpkin Banana Bread
    4 cups flour
    2 tsp. baking powder
    2 tsp. baking soda
    2 tsp. cinnamon
    1 tsp. nutmeg
    1 tsp. ginger
    1tsp. cloves
    1 tsp. salt
    About 14 oz. mashed pumpkin
    3-4 large ripe mashed bananas
    8 oz. sour cream 
    2 tsp. vanilla extract
    1/2 c. oil
    4 large eggs
    3/4 c. sugar
    3/4 c. brown sugar


    Mix together bananas, pumpkin, vanilla, oil and sugar.   Add eggs, one at a time.


    Combine dry ingredients.


    Add dry ingredients to wet, alternating with sour cream.

    Pour into two oiled bread pans.

    Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes, or until done.  


    For an optional glaze, mix 1 c. powdered sugar with 2-3 Tb. milk--adding more or less until desired consistency is reached.

    I think I may be starting to turn a little orange from eating all this pumpkin.  Totally worth it though.  This pumpkin banana bread was amazing.
