Pumpkin Banana Bread Recipe

I came across this recipe in a local newspaper about 10 years ago, and I still make the bread on a regular basis. The recipe conveniently yields a number of mini loaves, making gift-giving easy.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 28, 2012

"When I saw the combination pumpkin and banana, I was delighted! I printed it out (without throughly reading it) to make the following day. As I was preping the ingredients, I noticed there were NO spices!!I went to my pumpkin bread recipe and added banana to it.The end!!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 18, 2012

"I noticed that many of the reviewers who rated this recipe quite high made significant modifications. As is the recipe is only "fair" due to unnecessary amounts of fat and sugar. Use the substitutions suggested here, and you can feel good about enjoying the same (better even) great end result!"
