Banana Nutella Pumpkin Bread [Secret Recipe Club]

I have sad news.  This will be my last month participating in the Secret Recipe Club.  :-(  I love participating, but my life has been so busy over the last few months (and looks like it will continue along the same vein) that I just can't commit to posting by certain dates.  It's been a great year of exploring other blogs and making other bloggers' recipes, and I will truly miss the community. 

Funnily enough, my participation in this group has come full circle.  For my second month's post, I let my coworkers choose a recipe (Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins), and so I decided to let them choose my last one as well.  They must have a love affair with bananas because they chose this Banana Nutella Pumpkin Bread recipe from Mom's Crazy Cooking.

Mom's Crazy Cooking is written by Tina in my home state of California.  Besides blogging about food, she also loves to spend time with her kids (me too!), travel and camp (me too!) and do digital scrapbooking (well, maybe not me too...but only because I'm not organized enough to keep at it!).  She has an exhaustive list of recipes on her site that look delicious and family-friendly, just like this bread.  The Banana Nutella Pumpkin bread is dense and chocolately and a great breakfast snack.  A couple of tips, though: 1) Don't over bake it.  I baked the muffins too long, and they turned out a little dry.  The loaf was nice and moist, though.  2) Next time I would try mixing some Nutella into the batter itself and then swirling some on top.  I could only taste the Nutella on the top bites and would have loved the flavor throughout.  3)  Add a little bit of cinnamon to bring out the pumpkin and banana bread flavors--I did and wasn't sorry.

If you'd like the recipe, head on over to Mom's Crazy Cooking...and check out her other fabulous recipes while you're at it!

Sorry to see you go but this was a wonderful last post. I'm bookmarking this recipe because I made Homemade Nutella for my SRC pick and am not quite sure what I'll do with all of it. Thanks for sharing and best of luck!

When supposed leaked replica wathces photos for a new ground-terrain Megatron were leaked this week for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, a lot of us were left wondering if they were like prada handbags many photo scoops of the past. In other words, fake. Director Michael Bay warned us last year that we would be getting a lot of officially sanctioned disinformation for the sequel and this seemed to be a prime example.
