Banzini Bread…trademark pending… :)

Banzini bread?

What in the wide world of sports is that???????

Well I am glad you asked. This little diddy was  inspired by my newly in lawed aunt and uncle.

After an adventurous afternoon filled with baking, eating, cooking, eating, and more eating, and drinking I got bit by the baking bug to create something fun and delicious.

We baked two loaves of homemade zucchini bread, which by the way were tastastic…. 🙂

At home later the next evening, I was getting ready to bake up some bread for future usage.

I thought to myself, how can I turn my mundanely eaten banana bread into an exciting bundle of deliciousness??

Well I answered myself quite literally….add zucchini!!!

We gather here today, to witness in the joining of banana and zucchini.

We had this huge zucchini that was taking refuge in my husbands car for only God knows how long.

Therefore it was a no-brainer to add this veggie to my quick bread.

Hesitation set in due to my lack of success with my first try of zucchini bread I had made previously in the week.

But with my hubby cheering me on in the background, I went for it with my game face on and this is what I came up with.
