Delicious bread! I swapped out the vegetable oil for butter, added a bit more cinnamon, a pinch of cayenne, vanilla and rum extract. It has a little kick which added great spice to the bread!

Still warm right out of the oven. It tasted fantastic and will keep this recipe for doing again. My hubby loved and he just took one to our neighbor. Thank you and it was so easy to make.

I have always enjoyed both banana bread and zucchini bread. When I came across this recipe, I had to make it. I followed the recipe using overripe bananas that had almost black peels. I adjusted the nuts by using 1/2 cups of walnuts and 1/2 cups of pecans. I baked four smaller loafs with this recipe. Great results, the loaves turned out great, and they were not overly sweet. This will be a go-to recipe.

I made this to use some over ripe bananas and it was delicious! I used some zucchini I had frozen from my garden. It was very moist.

My oven broke down as I was preheating to pop this in.. rather than throw it out, had an idea to place the cakepan into a double boiler with 2 inches hot water, a tea towel over the top of the pan (to absorb the water vapour) then covered with a large bowl.. steamed this for about an hour, turned out even better than the baked version! Was super moist and fluffy, this was one of the best kitchen accidents Ive ever had :)

First time baking my own bread and it turned out fabulous. I made12 mini loaves of happiness. My only change was I added a tsp of vanilla and decreased the cooking temp to 325 degrees. This is definitely a keeper!

I made this recipe but instead of bread I made muffins. Didn’t change it a bit except baking time lessened. Baked them 20-25 minutes. Nicely browned on top. Delicious.

If I could give this recipe more than 5 stars I would. I followed the directions except left out the nuts and added a cup of mini chocolate chips instead- perfection!
