What a fun week, of Wplus9 Design releases, it has been! Thanks for coming along for the ride! I have one more project, using two of our November releases, for you all, today; but if you're a follower of my blog, you know that it will, definitely, not be the last. I love Wplus9! Guys, these stamps are the bomb-digity!
Country Home Magazine and will share it, now, before I get any further, because it is Yum-O! Well, and because Dawn asked me to :). Anything for Dawn!
Pumpkin Banana Bread
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. granulated sugar
2/3 c. cooking oil
3 1/3 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. apple pie spice
2/3 c. apple cider or water
1-15 oz. can pumpkin
1 medium ripe banana, mashed
Grease bottom and sides of loaf pans; set aside. In large mixing bowl, combine sugars and oil on medium speed. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition; set aside. In large mixing bowl, combine flour, soda, salt, and pie spice. Alternately add dry mixture and cider to sugar mixture, beating on low speed after each addition. Beat in pumpkin and banana. The recipe link above, also, calls for a 6 oz. pkg. of dried cranberries, but ick! It is soooo delicious just the way it is! Spoon batter into prepared pans. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes for four, small pans or 60 minutes for two, large pans. If necessary, cover with foil the last 15 minutes of baking to prevent over browning. Cool, on wire racks, in pans, for ten minutes. Remove from pans. Cool completely. Wrap and store overnight before serving. Freezes well (For real!). Enjoy!
I, then, wrapped a loaf in Saran Wrap and, in turn, in a cute, little, pink, polka dot, tea towel, complete with twill tape hanger, that I made...
Classic Christmas, because I missed out on the first day of our release and just had to play :).
From the Kitchen Of, to help the recipient re-make this scrumptious recipe herself.
