I had a can of pumpkin and some browning bananas that needed to be used up, so I decided to use them to make this easy sweet bread. My kids love to eat sweet bread for breakfast, so when I make this it serves as a simple breakfast meal for several days. It's great to make things like this on Sunday, so that your weekday breakfasts are homemade and easy to access. Just store the bread in a ziploc bag and slice it when you want it.
Ingredients: 1 stick butter (softened) 1 cup white sugar 2 eggs 1 can of pumpkin or 1.5 cups mashed banana 2 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking soda
Directions: Preheat oven to 350.
In a medium-sized bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until smooth. Beat in the eggs, and then add the fruit. Mix it well. Add the flour and soda, and stir just until combined. Pour into a loaf pan and bake for one hour, or until toothpick comes out clean.
Living in small town Oklahoma, I am married to the sweetest man you will ever meet. We have five young children, so I would now consider myself a professional juggler. I'm a wannabe crafter, cook, baker, and gardener. Some might call me crunchy. I'm okay with it.
