I don't want to start a debate, but I like to think of this as a cake in the shape of a loaf of bread... that you can eat for breakfast! It does have fruit and vegetables after all...
The ingredients are exactly what you would expect in a loaf cake recipe:
step one: in a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg; set aside
step two: in a smaller bowl, whisk the butter and brown sugar until completely combined,=
step three: add the eggs and vanilla and whisk again until smooth
step four: add the bananas and use a fork or whisk to mash them up (doing it this way gives some banana chunks in the loaf which I like - if you prefer to mash in a small bowl before mixing in fo rless lumps then that would work as well!)
step five: add the banana mixture to the flour mixture and stir just until combined
step six: fold in the zucchini and bluberries until evenly dispered throughout the batter
step seven: transfer the batter to a greased 9x5 loaf pan and bake in 350 F oven for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean
step eight: allow to cool in pan for at least 10 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to finish cooling before slicing and serving
I pretty much eat this straight out of the pan as-is everytime I walk past it on the kitchen counter. Since I work from my kitchen this happens more than I care to admit; however sitting down and enjoying this loaf cake with a generous swipe of butter alongside a coffee is such a treat! It makes the perfect companion to coffee, tea, or a nice tall glass of milk!
preheat oven to 350 F, grease a 9x5 loaf pan and set aside
in a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg and set aside
in a smaller bowl, whisk together the butter and brown sugar until smooth, then add the eggs and vanilla and whisk again until uniform
add the bananas and use a whisk or a fork to break them up while mixing them into the batter
add the butter mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined, then fold in the zucchini and blueberries until evenly dispersed throughout
bake in preheated oven for 60-70 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean
allow to cool in pan fo rat least 10 minutes before flipping out onto a wire rack to finish cooling
slice and enjoy!
