  • 1 1/3 c pumpkin in the can
  • 2.5 c flour all-purpose
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 3 bananas as overripe as possible, mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 c oil
  • 1/2 c walnuts chopped, optional
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 c brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Use a mixer on low to mix your sugar, pumpkin, eggs and oil together.
  • Mash your overripe bananas and add to this bowl, mix on low until combined....will be lumpy.
  • In a separate bowl combine all dry ingredients and mix well so they are evenly distributed.
  • Add half of your dry mixture to your wet mixture and use mixer on low to combine, it will be a bit lumpy that is okay.
  • Add remaining dry mixture and mix until no dry is remaining.
  • Spray a loaf pan with non stick spray and fill 3/4 full.
  • There will be some left, you can make a few muffins or I use mini loaf pans for remainder.
  • Put into preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 45-50 minutes for the large loaf or until the middle feels like it has barely firmed up - toothpick comes out clean. (do NOT over bake or it won't be as moist)
  • If making mini loaves bake at same time but only about 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
  • Take out and put on cooling rack until almost completely cooled before flipping over and cutting.
