Pumpkin Banana Bread

Pumpkin Banana Bread

There are so many possibilities when it comes to pumpkin.  It mixes with other fruits pretty well, too.  I have made pumpkin apple muffins.  I have made orange pumpkin pie.  This time, I combined it with bananas in a bread.  What other fruits have you seen pumpkin paired with?

Pumpkin Banana Bread

My bread pan was too big for this recipe.  Actually, I think it would have been better made into two mini loaves.  Not that the bread was dry or anything.  It was just short.  I find short quick breads annoying.  It’s like they are trying to be cute and mini, but they just can’t pull it off.  I guess I am a bit of a quick bread snob.
