Zucchini Bread Recipe

Posted on December 08, 2014

A great holiday nostalgic memory for me is Zucchini bread.Growing up, we would bake Zucchini bread as a family, wrap them up in gift wrap and then give them to our neighbors to spread holiday cheer. Although Zucchini is a summery vegetable, they are readily available during the holiday season at your local grocery store.This recipe is a very simple recipe that doesn’t require fancy mixers or crazy ingredients. What I like most about Zucchini bread is that it doesn’t taste like Zucchini at all! This bread comes out very flavorful, moist and delicious. I hope you enjoy this Zucchini bread recipe.
