Servings 10 slices
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup unsalted butter , melted
- ½ cup white sugar
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2 medium bananas , mashed
- 1 cup grated zucchini*
Preheat the oven to 350F degrees.
Line a 9x5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper, or grease and flour the bottom & sides.
In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda & salt.
In a separate large bowl whisk together the melted butter & sugars until no lumps remain.
Whisk in the eggs and vanilla extract.
Stir in the mashed bananas.
Gently fold the flour mixture into the banana mixture. Then fold in the grated zucchini.
Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 50-60 minutes or until the top is firm/slightly springy to the touch and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.**
Cool fully before slicing.
*Squeeze out any excess water from the zucchini using a paper towel.
**If the bread starts to get too brown on the top before it's fully cooked in the middle, tent a piece of aluminium foil overtop as it continues to bake.
