2 7x3-inch loaf pans


  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter, softened

  • 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 3 cups white sugar

  • ½ cup toasted walnuts

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves

  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

  • 4 eggs

  • ½ banana, mashed

  • 2 tablespoons honey


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 7x3-inch loaf pans with 2 teaspoons butter.

  2. Mix flour, sugar, walnuts, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger together in a large bowl. Cube 2 tablespoons butter into the bowl.

  3. Whisk pumpkin puree, vegetable oil, eggs, banana, and honey together in a bowl until smooth. Fold in flour mixture just until blended. Pour into the prepared loaf pans.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes. Cool in the pans for 5 minutes; invert onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Cook's Note:

If you want to top with icing, mix whipped vanilla frosting (such as Duncan Hines(R)) with 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree and 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt.
