Grandma's Crazy Bread

I don't know when I first ate this bread, but I know it was a long time ago. I call it Grandma's Crazy Bread because my Grandma Fannie used to make it (probably still does, but I don't live close enough to her to know). My grandma calls it Mike's Crazy Bread because my Uncle Mike loves it, but it's a favorite for many people in my family. It's a really moist bread with so many goodies.

Tonight for the first time, I left out the raisins and the walnuts and threw in blueberries and raspberries. So good for dessert, snack or a sweet breakfast.

Grandma's Crazy Bread

3 very ripe bananas
2 c. brown sugar
3 c. flour
2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
3 eggs
1 c. oil
6 oz. chocolate chips
2 c. walnuts, chopped
2 c. zucchini, shredded
1 c. coconut
1/3 c. raisins, optional

Glaze:
1/2 c powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla
2 T. milk
Walnuts, chopped

Beat in oil, chocoalte chips, walnuts, zucchini, coconut and rasins. Add bananas; mix well. Turn into loaf pans. Bake for 60 - 65 minutes. Take out of pans and cool completely before adding glaze. For glaze, mix powdered sugar, vanilla and milk until smooth. Pour over cooled bread. Sprinkle with walnuts.

  2. Looks yummy!
    And reminds me. I better get my Grandma's fruit cake recipe. She is 84 after all. And nobody makes good fruit cake like hers.

  3. I'm not gonna lie... it looks kinda weird. But Heather says that it's really good. Might be worth a try someday.
