Pumpkin Apple Banana Cake~

 Yummy, so I decided to use all three of the ingredients like I said & I found this recipe and did some changes as I went along.  There were no eggs so I added one.  Probably could have added two, oh well, maybe next time.

Ingredients for bread:

2 1/2 cup flour 
1 1/2 cup sugar (I used 1 cup)
1 TBS. pumpkin pie spice
1tsp. baking soda
1tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 ripe banana
1cup pumpkin
1/2 cup Greek yogurt (I only had regular yogurt it worked fine)
2 cups apple chopped (Granny Smith are perfect)
1-2 eggs

Ingredients for streusel topping:

1 TBS. butter, softened
1/2 tsp. cinnamon 
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 TBS. flour


Preheat oven 375 degrees & grease a 9 x 13 pan.

Mash banana fairly well so it's creamy.Add pumpkin & yogurt to banana.  Mix well.

In another bowl mix flour, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, baking powder & salt.
Sift dry ingredients over the wet ingredients & mix well.  Fold in chopped apples.
Once batter is mixed transfer to greased pan.

Sprinkle streusel topping evenly over batter. 

Bake 30-40 depending on pan size you use & oven.  Loaf pan, bundt pan, muffins or even muffin tops would work well with this recipe.  Just remember to adjust time accordingly.

Cool on wire rack...cut a piece, top with fresh whipped cream & a few sprinkles of pumpkin pie spice & enjoy~

Another option would be a cinnamon buttercream frosting

  1. I have to say this cake was better the next couple of days & good because the moisture comes from fruits...there is no oil in this cake!
