Winter Squash Banana Bread

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 55 min. + cooling


2 loaves (16 slices each)

“I modified my usual recipe when I couldn’t find any zucchini at the grocery store,” relates Violet Rundels of Waverly, Ohio. “I used cooked squash from the freezer section instead, along with bananas. My family loves this bread.”


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup frozen cooked winter squash, thawed
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 medium)
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, allspice, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat the eggs, oil and vanilla; add squash and bananas. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in walnuts.
  2. Pour into two greased 8x4-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.

    This is the best bread ever. I bake it in 6-7 mini loaf pans 3 x 5 inches and adjust the time without any problem. Several people I have given this bread to have commented that they ate the whole loaf in one setting - one of them saying it was in front of friends and they didn't even offer to share and really didn't feel guilty! It is really a keeper! Thanks for sharing!

    Could the time/temp. be adjusted to using two (2) 9x5 loaf pans?
