#ImprovCookingChallenge ~ Pumpkin Banana Bread

The October 2017 Improv Cooking Challenge is "sugar and spice" (any spice at all and any sugar or alternate sugar / sugar substitute). I had been craving pumpkin bread (after just going through #pumpkinweek and being exposed to a LOT of amazing pumpkin goodies) and when I saw the Improv Cooking Challenge ingredients I knew that was the direction I wanted to go.

This bread didn't last long at our house at all. I'm discovering that my picky 4-year old really likes pumpkin baked goods. She had several helpings, as did the rest of us. This makes a wonderful bread to enjoy alongside a cup of tea or coffee in the evening, or warmed with a little butter in the morning. It's very versatile and I really enjoyed the combination of the banana with the pumpkin - it was a very moist bread and I can't wait to make another loaf soon!
