Zucchini Banana Bread

I L*O*V*E this banana bread recipe from Savuer. In fact I probably make it twice a month whenever we have over ripe bananas. So I decided to thrown in some zucchini and it came out great!!! 
Give it a try. You'll love it. I promise! 

Butter, for greasing pan
1 cup flour, plus more for pan
3⁄4 tsp. baking soda
1⁄4 tsp. kosher salt
1 cup sugar
1⁄2 cup canola oil
1⁄3 cup buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
2⁄3 cup chopped pecans
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
1.5 cups finely grated zucchini, squeezed and drained in a dish towel
3 tablespoons sugar in the raw (sprinkle on top prior to baking)

1. Heat oven to 350°. Grease a 9" x 5" x 
2 3⁄4" loaf pan with butter and dust with flour; set pan aside.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

3. Whisk together sugar, oil, buttermilk, vanilla, egg, and egg yolk in a medium bowl until smooth. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and whisk until just combined. Add pecans, zucchini and mashed bananas and whisk gently to combine.   Pour batter into prepared pan and  
sprinkle sugar in the raw on top to form a lovely sweet crust.
Bake until golden brown
 and a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean, 60–65 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes before slicing and serving.

SERVES 6 – 8

Oh my! That looks amazing! I'm a fan of not wasting my bananas (especially when they are the price of gold here at the moment!) I usually make banana cake or freeze them for banana ice cream. But this just might be something wonderful to try! Thanks for sharing!! xx
