Banana, Pumpkin, Chocolate Bread

Nov 24, 2020 | Food, Sweets

Happy Wednesday everyone!!  One more day to Turkey Day!!!!  If you are still planning your menu and wondering what to bake for after dinner dessert, try this Banana, Pumpkin, Chocolate Bread with hints of pumpkin pie spice, banana, pumpkin, and swirls of chocolate morsels.  Make this the night before for breakfast or serve warm after dinner with a sliver of butter.  How about adding some pumpkin butter on top with a drizzle of chocolate syrup or honey or both?  Yummy!
Pumpkin Bread
I found this recipe on a blog called KBStyled and had to make it.  I followed the directions but next time I’ll add in walnuts and maybe 1 more banana!  This recipe makes two loafs which was perfect because I made one for me and Thomas and the other I took to a party with a jar of homemade pumpkin butter.  One of my little secrets that I’ll let you in on is that I take my sweet breads, cakes, and cookies out of the oven before they are done.  This leaves them a bit gooey in the middle and they cook as the pan is cooling down.  This creates a very moist dessert packed full of goodness!

This Banana, Pumpkin, Chocolate bread is great for a homemade gift wrapped in a to-go box by Martha Stewart (TJMaxx is where I bought mine) and tied in red and white twine.  Appreciate someone at the holidays?  Give them this dessert with a beautiful card to let them know you are thinking of them.
