This is the time of year where school days are spent curled up on the couch and baking becomes an afternoon activity. So when Lydia finished early one day and wanted to bake, I pulled up this recipe for her and she went right to work.
We love the richness of Pumpkin Bread in the fall and with the addition of caramel, what could go wrong? So she rolled up her sleeves and gathered her ingredients. My kitchen was quickly filled with the sounds of pots and pans rustling and heated by a warm stove. In the end, she came out with two moist loaves of a unique and tasty snack bread.
Pumpkin Spice Caramel Banana Bread
(*from Sparkles of Yum)
2 c. flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c. butter
3/4 c. brown sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
6 mashed bananas
1/2 c. caramel bits
1 tsp vanilla
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix all dry ingredients by hand.
3. Mix in wet ingredients and beat until smooth.
4. Stir in caramel bits.
5. Pour into greased pan and bake 60-65 min.
6. Cool on wire rack 15-20 min, and allow to cool completely.
This was a yummy recipe that we'll be including in our collection... after we play with it a bit. We all agreed that there was too much banana and we wanted more of the pumpkin caramel flavor. So rest assured, we'll be coming back with this recipe again, after we've had some time to adjust it to our liking.
What are you baking up this fall?
