Servings: 2 loaves


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup mashed banana (about 3 medium bananas)
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare two rectangle loaf pans by spraying with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Add flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, and spices to a medium bowl. Whisk together to combine. In another large bowl, whisk sugars, oil, and eggs together. Add pumpkin puree and mashed banana. Whisk to combine. Add flour mixture and fold together. Fold in chopped walnuts.
  • Divide batter evenly among the two prepared loaf pans. Place in preheated oven and bake for 45-60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle of the loaf.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes and then remove from loaf pan to cool completely. Do not slice until completely cool to ensure the loaf does not crumble during the slicing process.
