The best recipe I've found to get that wonderful, dense, moist banana bread with a hint of pumpkin spice. I've made many banana bread recipes, and after tweaking them here and there came up with this one that every asks for again and again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix together sugars, oil and eggs.
  3. Add mashed banana, pumpkin, and milk (or yogurt).
  4. Mix dry ingredients together. Slowly add to wet ingredients, mixing as you go.
  5. Add nuts if desired.
  6. Pour into a greased loaf pan, leaving about an inch of room at the top.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 60-70 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. Enjoy!

This was very moist and delicious! I will make it again & again... I used milk, and will try the yogurt next time - just to check out the difference. The only thing I'd change is the spices... it was VERY pumpkin spicy & I may back off on the quantities just a bit next time. I love the idea of cream cheese pumpkin butter mentioned in another review. :) Cheers!

LOVE that this uses oil vs shortening! Made 18 muffins. Can't taste banana at all, which is ok. Spice is definitely more than a hint, as listed in recipe, but fine as is. I did use nuts and also threw in some mini chocolate chips, which I wd not do again. They are just lost in the harvest flavors.
