Zucchini Banana Bread:
1 3/4 c. all purpose flour
1c. mashed banana
2c. grated zucchini (mine was frozen and moisture removed)
3/4 c. white sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. vanilla
1/2 c. light oil
chocolate chips or walnuts (I did not use in my recipe)
Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
Mix all dry ingredients together.
Add in wet ingredients and stir.
Add in mashed bananas and zucchini and fold in completely.
Grease and lightly flour your loaf pan.
I used my beautiful le crueset loaf pan that bakes everything perfectly! Fill loaf pan half way.
Put into oven and bake at 350F for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes depending on your oven and altitude. My loaf took the entire 75 minutes. Do a poke check and see if your bread is baked inside.
Remove from oven and let cool.
Loosen cool bread from loaf pan and transfer to a flat surface.
Slice and serve!
Everyone will rave about it!

Each February, I do the “Punny Valentine” Series. This year I will do SEVEN new crochet patterns alternating with past patterns as we move toward Valentine’s Day 2019. FOURTEEN days of cheeky puns to put a smile on your face as we “share the love” this month! 💕 Let’s begin with a happy cupcake pattern! You all make my life filled with “fun-fetti sweetness” when you join me in this annual event! I am not going to “sugar-coat” this -Some only dream of cake, but YARNutopians “bake” it happen! So let’s “bake” it easy and start with “sprinkles” of fun in our day. You know we all “dessert” it because I would be “muffin” without you! Let’s start living the “sweet life” with this pattern. Below, you will see all the secret “ingredients” to make this fun amigurumi!!

My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.
