    Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone has a good recipe for banana nut bread, and pumpkin bread? I can't find the recipe I like for pumpkin bread, and the recipe I used last was sooooo bland.
    I've never even tried to make banana nut bread only the store package stuff.
    Fall is here, and I am ready to start doing some baking! :)

    Here's the pumpkin

    Pumpkin Pecan Loaves

    3-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
    3 cups sugar
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1-1/2 teaspoons salt
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
    1 cup vegetable oil
    4 eggs, lightly beaten
    2/3 cup water
    1/2 cup chopped pecans

    Carmel Glaze (optional)

    1/4 cup butter
    1/4 cup sugar
    1/4 cup packed brown sugar
    1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
    2/3 cup confectioners' sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract


    * In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Combine the pumpkin, oil, eggs and water; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined; fold in the pecans.
    * Spoon into two greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
    * For glaze, combine the butter, sugars and cream in a saucepan. Cook until sugar is dissolved. Cool for 20 minutes. Stir in the confectioners' sugar and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle over cooled loaves. Yield: 2 loaves.

    Banana Bread (very easy and super moist)
    1/3 cup vegetable oil
    1 cup sugar
    2 large eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    3 medium - large over-ripe bananas, slightly mashed
    1 1/4 cups plain flour (I think it's all purpose flour in the US)
    1 teaspoon baking soda (bi-carb soda)

    Preheat oven to 180 C. Grease and flour a 23 cm x 13 cm loaf pan. Combine oil, sugar and eggs. Beat hard with a whisk until light coloured and creamy. Add vanilla and bananas and beat again. Combine flour and bi-carb. Add to banana mixture and stir to combine. Beat well. Spoon into pan. Bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan for five minutes before turning out to cool on a rack. Enjoy.

    Wow THANK YOU! I plan on trying all of these recipes over the next couple of months! I love making the breads for my hubby and kids through the fall/winter. I usually make enough for hubby to take some to work and share. I can't wait to get to the store next week and get started on these recipes!
