I love making quick breads! They are (obviously) quick, delicious and perfect for breakfast and snacks. It seems like I always have bananas on my kitchen counter too. I make my go to Banana Bread recipe quite often and my family loves it. Ever since I was little, Banana Bread has always made an appearance on our family’s Thanksgiving table. It’s a favorite for all of the children and this year, in addition that yummy recipe, I’m adding this delicious Pumpkin & Banana Pecan Bread!
Creamy pureed pumpkin is mixed with mashed ripe bananas, warm cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and clove along with freshly chopped pecans for a tasty, moist bread that’s perfect with your cup of coffee in the morning!
For added flavor and crunch, this yummy bread is topped with cinnamon and sugar coated pecans for beautiful presentation too!
This simple quick bread is freezer friendly, so I get busy making it a week or so before Thanksgiving. If I can cross some items off my Thanksgiving to do list ahead of time, that helps me a lot and I find that I am able to enjoy the rest of my holiday kitchen prep work without rushing around.
The night before Thanksgiving, I just take this out of the freezer and it’s ready to slice in the morning. It makes a wonderful breakfast for the whole family while you spend some time together watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!
I have such wonderful memories from my childhood of waking up to my mother busy cooking away in the kitchen and the smell of a savory stuffed turkey baking away in the oven.
Now that I have a family of my own, I want them to experience the comforts of home on Thanksgiving morning and a simple, but special breakfast treat before the day begins.
This bread of course is great any time of the year, but if you love pumpkin for Thanksgiving, give this recipe a try! I think you’ll love it! It also makes a beautiful and thoughtful hostess gift wrapped in clear cellophane tied with twine and a sweet note! Enjoy!
