Zucchini Bread - by Lisa

I got my recipe done early this week because this weekend I'll be hanging out with Summer! Yay!! I also had hoped to enjoy this bread with my sister before she flew back to Chicago. But alas, the morning got away from me and while we couldn't sit down and enjoy it together, I was able to send a slice along with her on her flight. I hope she finds it as tasty as I did! I couldn't wait to get back home and try a slice. :) I wasn't disappointed! It was just as yummy as I'd hoped it would be!

The bread has a nice firm texture that is still quite moist but doesn't fall apart when you bite into it. The cinnamon flavor is just right and the whole thing pairs nicely with a glass of cold milk. :)

One thing I particularly liked about this recipe is that the only extra ingredient I needed was a zucchini. I got a medium sized one which yielded about 1 1/2 cups grated - more than enough! It would be particularly nice if I were growing my own zukes - then I would always have one in the summer! LOL! This was a really easy bread to make - the hard part was waiting for it to finish baking! Mine took about 72 minutes in the oven. I am looking forward to keeping this recipe handy - it is a definite keeper!


  1. So happy you liked this bread! I love it too - the recipe came from my friend's mom, she is famous for it. It freezes really well, too :)

    Hope you and Summer have a wonderful time together!
