Welcome to September!! I know… WHAT?!

Yes, we are officially in the first month of FALL (okay it;s at the end of the month but work with me here)! So, naturally, this month’s series is all about fall and Halloween recipes. YES, my prayers have been answered, now if the temperature outside would cooperate I would literally be in Heaven.

So fall = Pumpkin Spice. Duh. First recipe up in the series: Pumpkin Spice Banana Nut Bread, naturally 😉

I am head over heels in love with banana bread. Bananas… not so much. But let me bake with them and something magical happens!

Combine that with some cinnamon sugar roasted pecans, pumpkin spice, and vanilla glaze… Fall breakfast of champions. (Or dessert, or afternoon snack… whoops.)

I poked holes in it this time so some of the glaze would really seep into the bread. Totally optional!

I like to serve it a touch warm, but this will keep the glaze runny. Serve to your preference.

Ingredients

Banana Nut Bread

  • 2 Cups mashed bananas 4-5 bananas
  • 1 stick 8 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 3/4 Cup light brown sugar packed
  • 2 eggs room temp
  • 1/2 Cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 Cup chopped pecans I used my cinnamon sugar roasted pecans here
  • 1 Tablespoons Pumpkin Pie Spice

Vanilla Glaze

  • 2 Cups powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 1 Tablespoons water

Instructions

Banana Nut Bread

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together the brown sugar and butter for about 3 minutes in a stand mixer or with a hand mixer. Add in the eggs one at a time, beating them into the mixture. Add the sour cream, bananas, pumpkin spice and vanilla, beat for 1 minute. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and salt. Using a large spoon or spatula, slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Mix until no flour pockets remain but do not over mix. Fold in the pecans.
  • Spoon batter into 8x5 loaf pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 60-65 minutes, loosely covering the bread at the 30 minute mark with foil. This will make sure the bread doesn't get too dark. Bread is done when toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Take bread out of oven and let cool for 20 minutes on wired rack. Remove bread from pan and let cool completely.

Vanilla Glaze

  • While bread is cooling, make the vanilla glaze. Melt the butter in microwave safe bowl, add in the vanilla, powdered sugar and water. Stir to combine.
  • When bread is completely cool, pour glaze over the top of the bread and let it run down the sides, make sure you have a pan underneath to catch any excess glaze. Serve and enjoy!
