Zucchini Banana Bread

Zucchini Banana Bread
Moisture in this zucchini bread comes from banana rather than a lot of oil. I bet applesauce would work too.

  1. 1/3 cup butter at room temperature

  6. 1 Tbl vanilla
  7. 1 3/4 cups flour

  10. 1/2 tsp salt
  11. 1/2 cup chopped nuts

  3. Cream butter and sugar until smooth.
  4. Add eggs until blended.
  5. Add banana in chunks.
  6. Add zucchini and vanilla.
  7. In separate bowl, mix dry ingredients and mix until blended. Don't overmix.
