Versatile Buttermilk Bread - Banana or Zucchini

Versatile Buttermilk Bread - Banana or Zucchini created by Chef on the coast

I got this recipe from my sister-in-law while I was searching for a moist banana bread recipe years ago. She said the buttermilk makes all the difference. After trying a handful of different recipes - I am inclined to agree! The original recipe is for banana bread. I loved it so much I also altered it to make zucchini bread too! This recipe is one of those throw everything in a bowl and mix recipes - which is why I love it. It also freezes very well. **If you don't have buttermilk - plain yogurt can easily be substituted. Use 1/2 cup yogurt with a splash of milk.

    This was good. I did the zucchini version and left out the lemon peel but added pecans.

    One of the best Zucchini cakes I've ever tasted (aside from my Italian MIL of course). My family loved it. Super easy to make, moist, very tasty. 5 star all the way! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    I had an enormous zucchini from a friends garden, so I made 2 bundt cakes! I made a slight addition to the zucchini bread recipe - I added 1/2 mashed banana to each cake. It was DELICIOUS and I gave the extra cake to my friend who also LOVED it. Thanks!

    Very good and easy to make. I made the banana bread and followed the directions as written. We all loved it. Made for Spring PAC 2009.

    This is one-bowl perfection! Easy, tasty, versatile...all things a 'keeper' recipe should be! I added 3/4 C. chopped walnuts and backed the sugar off a bit...and was accused of adding MORE sugar! It came out of the oven just after 8:00 last night and I see only half is remaining this morning. No better review is needed! Another recipe for the dying banana file! Thanks so much!
