Winter Break Banana Pumpkin Bread

Len and her roomie got to our house yesterday looking like corpses!  Not eating enough, not sleeping enough, finals week, packing and cleaning to get out by noon yesterday...they needed to crash and they did!  They actually went to Oak Brook to shop and had to come right back home.  They felt too sick to shop!  If you don't know these girls, you won't know how tired they must have been to not have enough drive to shop!

I will let them sleep right up until it is time to go to the airport later.

I figured some breakfast with healthy things inside may put a little color back in their faces.   I am feeling nearly 100% myself so far today too.  I am so getting a flu shot from now on. I have not been that sick for a very long time and don't want to be ever again!

This bread is perfect for this morning.  No noisy mixer needed!  I don't have to disturb the peace.  And the long baking time gives me plenty of time to get my shower out of the way before anyone else is awake.

1 cup sugar with 1 tablespoon maple syrup mixed together
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup melted margarine
1 egg replacer egg
1/2 can of pumpkin (8 ounces total)
1 large mashed banana
2 tablespoons Very Vanilla Soymilk
1-3/4 cup GF baking mix
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 and grease loaf pan.

In medium/large bowl, mix together 1 cup sugar and the maple syrup.  Add the other sugar and egg replacer. Add pumpkin, banana, and soymilk.  Mix with whisk until well blended.  Mix your dry ingredients in small bowl and add to wet ingredients.  Whisk well until well blended.

Pour into your prepared pan and bake for 60-70 minutes or until knife comes out clean in center of loaf.

Cool in pan 10 minutes then remove to wire rack. Cool completely before slicing with serrated knife.

Smells like Christmas in here!
