The Canned Ingredient That Will Give Your Banana Bread Fall Flair
By LAUREN ROTHMAN
Moist and fluffy banana bread is a treat that almost everyone loves, with or without tasty mix-ins such as chocolate chips, dried fruit, or coconut. Besides stirring candy or nuts into your batter, you can also play around with different fats and sweeteners, but for the autumn season, there's no better addition than this canned ingredient.
Recipe developer Hayley MacLean recommends baking pumpkin banana bread for a festive and delicious twist. Pumpkin bread or pumpkin muffins already have similar recipes compared to banana bread, so all you have to do is add canned pumpkin to your banana bread recipe, ideally with a sprinkle of pumpkin spice as well.
Pumpkin bread and muffins have a similar recipe to banana bread, and MacLean’s recipe for pumpkin banana bread, made from canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice provides a wallop of texture from add-ins including walnuts, dried cranberries, and dark chocolate chips. And with its warm pumpkin fragrance, it's perfect for a cold autumn day.
