Buttermilk Banana-Zucchini Bread

Amanda Marble


*This scrumptious bread is best warm and slathered with butter and eaten with a fork!

*If you like strong spices in your banana bread, add at least 3x more than the recipe calls for.

*Also, try pan-frying in butter, then sprinkling with powdered sugar for a yummy dessert!
