Pumpkin Banana Bread

Written by chanie on February 16th, 2012

I’m officially done with my baby food stash. I had 3 jars of bananas left, and although they are my son’s favorite, he has long since graduated to the real thing. I’m not one to throw anything away, so I concocted this delicious recipe for pumpkin banana bread. It’s the first time I’ve experimented with baking, and I’m so proud of how it turned out.

When it comes to breads, cakes and cookies, I always have to follow a recipe, with only minor adjustments. I’m sure there is some kind of science behind baking that teaches you the proper flour:sugar:egg ratio, but I’ve never learned it. As much as baking is not my “thing”, finding a use for leftover ingredients, is. So I set my lack of baking skills aside and just went for it. I’m thinking I should probably do it more often. The results were outstanding!

    How many loaves does this make?

  4. Question– do you really need so much butter with the banana and pumpkin? What do you think?

    • chanie says:

      If you don’t want to use butter, you can use oil instead. It may seem like a lot considering the banana and pumpkin, but there is also a lot of flour in the recipe. I’m not sure how it would work out if you reduce the amount, but you’re welcome to try!
