Pumpkin Banana Bread
Preheat oven to 350
Grease and flour loaf pan (I use Crisco and then use white sugar instead of flour…Oh. My. Word.)
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup mashed bananas (about 2 large)
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
In large bowl cream sugar and butter. Beat in eggs, bananas, pumpkins and vanilla. Mix well. In medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nuts. Add to pumpkin mixture and blend well. Spoon batter into greased and floured loaf pan. Bake at 350, 45-55 minutes. Cool 10 minutes. Remove and cool on wire rack.
I always double this recipe and use a full can of pureed pumpkin.
Delicious when eaten warm with butter and/or softened cream cheese.
