Pumpkin time will soon be fast approaching and you have heard me say many times, I love anything pumpkin. Just as I am typing I had a vision of pumpkin chocolate swirl fudge. I think I may put that on my list to make. I'll have to find a good recipe. Anybody have one? So back to the banana bread. How can you go wrong combining banana and pumpkin for this bread. The only thing better is to add milk chocolate chips. I think I need my glass of milk now.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1/2 cup softened butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup pureed pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1 cup mashed bananas (usually 2 bananas)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup milk chocolate chips (optional but wonderful)
Mix well all wet ingredients together in mixer bowl. Add dry ingredients except chips and mix well. Add milk chocolate chips and blend.
Spray metal or glass loaf pan with baking spray. Pour in batter and bake on 350 degrees for at least an hour. Check with cake tester to see if it is done. Cool in pan for at least 15 minutes and then turn out on to cooling rack.
