Julie's Pumpkin Banana Muffins or Bread

As Fall/Winter sets in, I get the urge to bake, bake, bake!  It drives me crazy because everything is so yummy.  I will have to freeze and give away some of my baked goods to get rid of temptation!  Today I was asked for this recipe...."Julie's Pumpkin Banana Muffins" Hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.

"Julie's Pumpkin Banana Muffins or Bread"

1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter, softened
3 eggs
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tea. baking soda
1 tea. salt
1/2 tea. baking powder
1 tea. pumpkin pie spice*
1 cup chopped nuts of your choice 
1/2-1 cup chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine sugar, butter and eggs...mix in large mixing bowl.  Beat until light and fluffy (1 or 2 min).  Add in the pumpkin and bananas (1 or 2 more min).   Add remaining ingredients.

Pour into greased muffin pan or spread into 2 greased 8x4-inch loaf pans.  Muffins bake for 19 min.  Bread, bake for 50-60 min.

*Substitute 1/2 tea. ground cinnamon, 1/4 tea. ground ginger, 1/8 tea. each ground nutmeg and ground cloves.

If you would like to add a yummy glaze just combine 2 cups powdered sugar, 3 TBS milk, 1 TBS melted butter, and 1 tea. vanilla.  Blend until smooth and drizzle onto muffins/bread!

Eat with a good friend and a glass of milk!
