  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • ⅛ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ⅛ tsp ground cloves
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened

  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ground ginger

To make the bread:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease (or spray) your (8x4 or 9x5) loaf pan and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk your dry ingredients together (flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves)until combined. Set aside.
  3. Using your stand mixer (or hand mixer), combine the butter and sugar until well combined.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition and scraping the bowl as needed.
  5. Add the pumpkin and vanilla and mix well. Add the mashed banana and blend well.
  6. Slowly pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients over low speed until well combined.
  7. Add in the walnutaand mix well by hand.
  8. Pour the mixture evenly into your prepared loaf pan and bake for 60 to 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  9. Allow to cool for about 10 to 15 minutes before removing from loaf pan.
  10. Cool bread completely before adding the spiced glaze.
To make the glaze:
  1. Combine all ingredients for the spiced glaze and mix well. You want it thick enough yet pourable. Drizzle over cooled bread. Let harden a few minutes before slicing and enjoying.
