This bread is delicious!!!! I was looking for a recipe that used bananas and canned pumpkin to get rid of some of my Thanksgiving over-stock. This was the perfect recipe! Changes I made: I used 3 bananas instead of 2, allspice instead of pumpkin pie spice and only 1 tsp of that, and I added a tsp. of vanilla. Also, only used 1/4 c. of oil. Baked in mini-muffin pans for about 20 min. Thanks for the great recipe/idea! I would have never put banana and pumpkin together but it works wonderfully in this bread! Also, used 1/2 cup light brown sugar in lieu of the honey.



I love this recipe! The changes I've made address the already noted difficulty with cooking time. I divide the recipe into 2- 4"x10" loaf pans and it takes about 50 to 55 min. I have also added diced candied ginger and it complimented the banana and pumpkin beautifully.



This is a great bread, and easy to make, too. I can't praise it enough. I can taste the banana, pumpkin and honey in every bite. I put a lot of golden raisins in it and it is just the best quick bread I ever made/ate. It did need to bake longer than the recipe indicated - more like an hour rather than 45 minutes.
