  • 1 stick 1/2 cup salted butter - softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 bananas mashed
  • 1 cup grated yellow squash
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans


  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Cream together butter and sugar
  • Add in flour, baking powder, and baking soda and mix until combined
  • Add mashed bananas, grated squash, eggs, and buttermilk and mix until well combined
  • Fold in nuts and pour batter into a well greased pan (see note)
  • Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until a knife inserted all the way into the middle comes out clean. Internal temperature of bread should reach 205 degrees

I highly recommend greasing the loaf pan with crisco and lightly dusting the pan with powdered sugar or flour before pouring the batter in
