Pumpkin Banana Bread

I've made this bread twice in the last month and it is delicious! Super moist. Tastes like fall. It is definitely a new favorite at our house! It should be noted that this recipe makes a LOT of bread. Four loaves. Perfect for you and a few friends. 
Recipe from Ashlee at 


  • 3 mashed bananas (I use 4)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups oil
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 large can pumpkin
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 3 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. cloves (I didn't use cloves and it was still delicious)
  • 3 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips and/or chopped nuts (optional)
  • 6 cups flour
Mix bananas and wet ingredients together. Beat well. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Pour into 4 large greased loaf pans or 10 small loaf pans. (I line the bottom of my pans with foil to keep it from sticking.)  Bake @ 350 degrees for 1 hour. (I usually have to bake mine for approx. 1 hr and 10 minutes to get the middle cooked. Also, if using a KitchenAid, you'll need to switch over to a big, huge bowl before adding in the flour as it won't fit. The dough will be VERY moist though so there shouldn't be a problem mixing it by hand for the last step.)
Note: You can substitute 1/2 of the oil for applesauce and some of the flour to whole wheat flour but they won't be as light and moist. If you want to add chocolate chips, then it tastes just like Great Harvest bread! These can be made into muffins and will make about 6 dozen muffins.
