Pumpkin Banana Bread

Have you ever seen a prettier loaf of bread?

Seriously though.

I sort of have a crush on this bread.

Okay and by the way,  pumpkin + banana = holy cow how did I not know this was such a fantastic combination before now??

Is it bad that I ate this whole loaf myself?

Well, except for the one little slice I left for the hubby. Otherwise, it all ended up in my belly.

Hello Delicious.

And yeah, that is my monstrous bite missing from that corner there. Um, maybe I have a big mouth? Sheesh, one bite and a quarter of the bread is gone. That’s a little embarrassing. Not to mention my mother would be so disappointed. I can hear her now…  “That’s not very ladylike” she would say.

I disagree however. Because I’m technically a lady. And that bite was mine. So I’d say it’s ladylike…

Or maybe I’m not really a lady. Just a gal in the kitchen making delicious food that has to get in my mouth as quickly as possible.

Yeah, that’s probably it. Oh well!

In any case, this bread was super yummy and needs to get in your mouth as quickly as possible now. So go make it. I demand it.

  • 2 medium over-ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl combine bananas, sugars, pumpkin, and vanilla. 
  • Add flour, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice, mixing until just combined. Pour batter into a greased bowl 8x4 bread pan. Bake for 30 minutes, then reduce heat to 325 and cook an additional 30 minutes or until top begins to brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.*
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool before removing from pan, slicing and serving. 


*If top begins to brown before toothpick comes out clean, place a piece of tinfoil on top of loaf and continue baking. This keeps the bread from browning but allows to cook through.

Oh my goodness. That looks soooo sooo yummy!! I wouldn’t think banana and pumpkin would mix well but I must try it soon!

    I was going out on a limb using up old bananas and some left over pumpkin and I’m SO glad I took a chance cause it turned out super yummy! If you try it, let me know what you think! Thanks for stopping by!

That is a PERFECT loaf of pumpkin bread! 🙂 Wow! Thank you so much for linking up with me this week at Tasty Tuesdays! I’ve pinned this & shared it with my followers!

    I know, I think it turned out really pretty! Thanks so much Anyonita!!

Hmm that looks tasty – i,’ve been on a banana bread kick recently.

    Me too! It seems like every week I just happen to have a couple of browning bananas sitting on my counter. How odd…. 😉

What a different combo! gotta try it! Pinned! Visiting from Brag About It Tuesdays!

    It was one of those total long shots where you hope it just turns out edible but then it ended up tasting sooo delicious! Definitely one of my FAV banana bread recipes now! Thanks for stopping ny AnnMarie!

This was deelish! Do you think it would work well baked as a muffin? Anyone try this?

    Ooh….. I think I’m gonna have to try that out!! this is one of my favorite recipes!!

I’m going to try it right now and swap out some of the regular flour for coconut flour. I’ll let you know how it goes! 🙂

i was so excited to try this recipe last night!! Unfortunately I don’t think it came out right…. Mine ended up like a very dense rubbery sponge. The flavor was good but the texture was all wrong. Did not resemble bread at all. Can you tell me what I did wrong? I went through the recipe twice & I can’t find the cause/mistake that would’ve resulted in the weird end result. Thanks!
