Pumpkin bread season

I tried a new recipe today.  I had some bananas that were past their prime, some canned pumpkin, and some Nestle Toll House Pumpkin Spice Chips.  I found a good recipe on food.com.  The recipe calls for chocolate chips but I wanted to try out these seasonal morsels.

It turned out great.  I wasn't able to get a picture before one of the teenagers cut into it.  The outer crust has a perfect texture and the bread itself is delicious.  It's a bit mild.  I think these pumpkin spice chips are a little too understated.  I want to try making this again with semisweet chocolate chips and see if I like using those more.

The banana and pumpkin flavors seem like a perfect marriage.  I definitely recommend it. Tomorrow morning I'm going to try it with some cream cheese.  Find the recipe here.

Today's Harry Potter quilt block is a box of Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans.  One of my favorite blocks.

Let me know if you have a favorite pumpkin bread recipe.  Or muffins.  Or pumpkin anything really.  I just love baking with pumpkin this time of year.

I've been craving something pumpkiny, but haven't been sure what to make yet. Picked up a chobani pumpkin spice yogurt today to tide me over until I figure out what it is that I want!
