Moist Pumpkin Banana Loaf

Banana bread takes a spicy pumpkin twist with this tasty recipe. Now I know the ingredient list seems long since you are making two bread recipes, but each batter only takes one bowl, saving you some clean up. 

The original recipe called for half of a can of pumpkin, which I misread and ended up using a full can. This may be the reason my loaf didn't 'marble' when I swirled a knife through the batter. As you can see, the two batters really didn't combine that much, but the final result was such a moist and delicious cake that I didn't mind.

This loaf is delicious served plain, or you can add a bit of butter or cream cheese to make it extra delicious. Many thanks to Take a Megabite for this recipe. Enjoy!

Snickers Apple Salad

Crisp apples, fluffy cool whip and pudding with Snickers bars make up this delicious side dish. This is one of those dessert "salads" which some people seem to be offended by. It is so delicious though!

Feel free to switch up what type of apples you use. Having made this with two sweet apple varieties, gala and golden delicious, I think a tart and sweet combo might be better, like granny smith and gala. Those were just my taste preferences though.

Please note- This salad is best served on the day it is made. I wouldn't recommend making this the day before. Keep it fresh and the apples crunchy by making it shortly before you plan on serving it. A few hours ahead of time is just fine, though.

Many thanks to Holly at Life In The Lofthouse who posted this recipe over at The Country Cook. The original recipe called for caramel sauce to be poured over the top, which I think might be more for presentation. It was super sweet just the way it was, so I skipped the sauce. Enjoy!
