Zuchhini Banana Bread

Bananas on a wooden crate

Every year, I make homemade Christmas gifts to give out to people I see everyday. This year, I made 24 mini loafs of zucchini banana bread.

To make up to 24 mini loafs, you may need only up to 1 1/2 times the recipe as this recipe makes 2 8″x4″ loafs of bread.

I have learned, through making this bread mix recipe and zucchini banana bread recipe, that the volume changes as the dimensions of the pan changes.

I made 3 times the recipe, thinking I needed that much to make 24 mini loafs of bread. However, since I needed only 1 1/2 times the mix recipe, I had an extra 1 1/2 mixes left.

I gave away, to a neighbor of mine, the bag of mix for 1 whole batch the needed zucchini and bananas as she let me borrow her grater.
