Zucchini Bread

Posted by Vanessa in Cooking, June 10, 2011

I already have one zucchini bread recipe on this site, and really have always enjoyed it, but seem to always be left with quite a few muffins that never get eaten…so this time when I brought home some gigantic zucchini from a local farmer’s market, I decided to try out a new recipe and see what happened.

Oh.  My.  Word.  This bread is ridiculous.  We devoured it.  I baked one loaf and 6 muffins out of the batter and it was all gone well within 24 hours.  And it wasn’t just me.  The kids and The Phoenix couldn’t get enough either.  This recipe makes for a more tender, lighter crumb than the Fresh Zucchini Muffins I posted last summer and apparently a more addicting flavor.  And, this bread doesn’t need to be buttered.  It’s perfect just the way it is, and I didn’t even know you could make zucchini bread that good.

But you can.

And you should.

Today.

Seriously.

    Glad you liked it, Ashley! I can’t even tell you how many times we’ve had it this summer. The kids and I can pretty much eat half of it before it cools…hehe. Hope to see you soon!
