After much hunting and researching for the perfect recipe to try for this recipe I finally found it. My old recipe I had scribbled down a long time ago and loved it.

I have a huge binder of nicely printed out recipes I’ve made. I also have my mom’s old recipes that she had written many, many years ago. Sometimes things don’t get put back in there proper place and you know you have it somewhere.

Well that’s the frantic hunt I was on. After turning everything upside-down I finally found it.

At some point I had given up and started looking for a new recipe, but none really sounded right. Then I came across an article from the Dallas News, this started making me nervous.

This poor girl tried several recipes, looking for the right one, and finally contacted a professional chef to answer questions about getting the bread out of pan without it sticking.

Little did I know there are whole forums on this discussion. Well I’m happy I paid some attention when my Mom baked. I didn’t know there was such turmoil over such things.

So I’ve included a picture of what your pan should look like before pouring your batter in.

I guess it’s been a while since I made this, but anyway this is the one, the right one. I had it all along.

It was just tucked away in one of those folder side pockets, of course the last place you look is where it turned up.

I haven’t a clue where it originally came from. I mean it’s not rocket science, but if something works that’s what I’d rather start with.

This is important because I wanted to add a couple new ingredients this time. I had these little caramel bits like chocolate chips only caramel. So some caramel gooey goodness, along with pumpkin spice, in a super simple banana bread turns out to be ohh so delish!!

Some tips:

  • Use light-colored metal pans, preferably aluminum. Dark pans absorb the heat and often result in burnt loaves. Don’t be lured by the nonstick finish. Proper greasing of the pan will prevent sticking.
  • Glass pans are worse. Glass will act as an insulator and often burn the bread. An old-fashioned aluminum pan works best.
  • Feel free to add in any types of nuts you would like. Walnuts or pecans would be the PERFECT addition to this Pumpkin Spice Caramel Banana Bread

Notes

Use light-colored metal pans, preferably aluminum. Dark pans absorb the heat and often result in burnt loaves. Don't be lured by the nonstick finish. Proper greasing of the pan will prevent sticking. Glass pans are worse. Glass will act as an insulator and often burn the bread. An old-fashioned aluminum pan works best. - Susan Reid, a chef and baking expert on staff at King Arthur Flour

Instead of using all the dry ingredients can I just use a boxed pumpkin cake mix and then add the bananas, eggs, etc?

I have a box of pumpkin cake mix that I need to use.
