  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium bananas)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Preheat and Prepare:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan with butter or non-stick cooking spray and set aside.


2. Mix Dry Ingredients:

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves until well combined. Set aside.

3. Cream Butter and Sugars:

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy, using a hand mixer or stand mixer.


4. Add Eggs and Flavorings:

Beat in the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract, mixing well after each addition.

5. Combine Wet Ingredients:

Stir in the mashed bananas and pumpkin puree until evenly incorporated into the batter.


6. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in a dense bread.

7. Transfer to Loaf Pan:

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading it out evenly with a spatula.


8. Bake:

Bake in the preheated oven for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.

9. Cool and Serve:

Allow the Pumpkin Banana Bread to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.


Serve slices of the bread slightly warm or at room temperature, and enjoy!

10. Storage:

Store any leftover Pumpkin Banana Bread in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the refrigerator for longer freshness.
