Pumpkin-banana bread (Punknana or banumpkin!)

Submitted by: MOLLYOSB

Introduction

Pumpkin bread with a bit of banana for moistness. This was invented when one can of pumpkin was too much for one batch, but not enough for a double. A couple of tired bananas solved my problem!

    This is a yummy bread. I used white whole wheat flour, splenda blend, egg beaters, and almond breeze substitutions, and it came out good (and way lower in calories)! - 2/28/10

    Very yummy. A few changes I made~ Instead of all white sugar I used white&brown, & honey. Instead of 1/4 canola oil, I used 1/2cup of coconut oil, and decreased the milk to 3/4cup. If I had plain greek yogurt, I would have used that instead of the milk.I also added 1cup of pecans. - 11/25/12

    I made this tonight but followed a few of the suggestions above:
    1) 3 c. white flour, 1 c. whole wheat
    2) egg beaters and applesauce substitutions
    3) 1/4 c. brown sugar and 3/4 c. white sugar
    4) skim milk

    Moist bread, but lacking flavor. Will add more pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon next tim - 10/6/10

    This is sooo good. I didn't have any canola oil at the moment, so I used applesauce. I used half wheat flour also. YUM - 9/29/10

    AMAZING! I halved the recipe to make one loaf (only took 45 minutes to bake). Changes: skim milk, only 2/3 cup of sugar, 1 Tbsp olive oil (it was all I had!). I MIGHT EAT THIS ENTIRE LOAF!!! - 10/23/09

    Yummy! Besides being oh so delicious, my house now smells like Autumn! I used whole wheat flour, 1 c. sugar, 1/4 c. light brown sugar, and 1 3/4 c. fresh baked pumpkin puree in place of the canned stuff. Thanks! - 10/10/09

    I used 2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 cups whole wheat, 6 tsp of baking powder, 1.5 cups milk, and only 1 cup of sugar (saved around 800 cal total). It made 12 muffins and one loaf. I cooked the muffins for 30 min and the loaf for 60 min. Delicious! One cup sugar was sweet enough. - 2/7/08

  • This is a very nice, moist pumpkin bread/cake. I made some changes though. Used 1 c. sugar instead of 2(cannot imagine the need for 2), used 2 eggs and 2 whites, and 1% milk instead of 2%. Every little bit helps, right? Do not over bake. I started checking at 45 min. Enjoy! - 11/15/13
