I created this recipe from ingredients I had left in the pantry from the past HOLIDAYS.

I decided to add a Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting to give it a different twist.

I used 2 pans so I could share one with a neighbor, therefore the pans were not as full as they would have been.

The two pans I used were 11 cup capacity, one is called a QUEEN OF HEARTS PAN, & the other is called DIMENSIONS BELLE PAN. I garnished the top with Heath Bar Toffee Bits to add just a little extra crunch.

The CANNED pumpkin,& nuts along with the Cream Cheese Frosting made this an IRRESTIBLE DESSERT.

How to Make Pumpkin Banana Nut Bread W/Crm Chse Caramel Frstng

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Both pans are 11 cup capacity, but I did not fill them as full as they should be so I could give one away. QUEEN OF HEARTS BUNDT PAN, & DIMENSIONS BELLE BUNDT PAN. If you want to show the details of the pan it is best to dust with powdered sugar, or use a very thin glaze.
  • 2QUEEN OF HEARTS BUNDT PAN.
  • 3Add both sugars to a large bowl, then add canola oil, and beat to mix together. Add all 6 eggs and beat again.
  • 4Measure flour into another bowl, add pumpkin pie spice, & pudding mix and stir to blend together.
  • 5Measure 1/3 cup of pumpkin liqueur into a 1 cup measure, then fill remaining with milk to make 1 cup. Leave till needed.
  • 6Mash bananas with a potato masher leave until ready to add to cake batter.
  • 7Add about 1/3 of flour mixture to beaten egg/sugar mixture, stir to blend, alternate with 1/3 liquid milk mixture, and alternate between flour & liquid till all is combined. Then add the canned pumpkin and butter pecan flavoring and beat till blended.
  • 8Stir in mashed bananas and chopped nuts, remove beaters and combine with a large spatula. I like to keep the bananas as chunky as possible without creating a banana puree.
  • 9Pour cake batter into prepared pans.
  • 10Bake in preheated 350 degree F. oven for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean. Let sit for 10 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • 11If you want to show details of cake from the pans dust lightly with powdered sugar, or use a thin glaze. I chose to use a Cream Cheese Caramel frosting.
  • 12To create the frosting , add all of the frosting ingredients to a large bowl, and on low speed gradually blend ingredients together,until creamy. If mixture is too thick you can thin with a little milk, adding 1 tablespoon at a time till it reaches the consistency you prefer.
  • 13Frost cake as desired, then top with Heath Bar crunch if desired, or use chopped nuts, or any other condiments that you prefer. Freeze any left over frosting to use at a later time for cup cakes or another cake. Serve to guest.
