It is the season for all things pumpkin and I love pumpkin bread.
I took out my banana bread recipe and my pumpkin bread recipe and created this banana pumpkin quick bread recipe.
I was hoping it would turn out well but you never know when re-writing a recipe.
Banana Pumpkin Bread
2 1/4 cups flour (I use freshly milled multi-grain flower but all purpose works just fine too)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tbls baking power
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup mashed bananas
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup buttermilk or sour milk (for sour milk add 1/2 tsp white vinegar to the milk)
1/3 cup softened butter or coconut oil (I use coconut oil)
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl add 1 & 1/4 cup of the flour along with the rest of the ingredients. Mix on slow until combined. Once combined, beat on high with electric mixer for 2 minutes. Add remaining flour, mix well. Pour batter into greased loaf pan (9x5x3 inches). Put in middle of oven and bake 1 hour plus 10 - 15 minutes (check at 1 hour but expect to need another 10 or 15 minutes). This is a very wet batter meaning it will take longer to bake than and average quick bread. Check doneness by inserting a tooth pick or wooden dowel into the center. If it comes out clean, the bread is done.
Turn out onto a cooling rack immediately and let cool completely. For best results, wrap tightly and let sit overnight. But I can never wait that long!
