Zucchini Bread

This recipe for Zucchini Bread is from my Mother. She’s made these zucchini loaves for as long as I can remember. It’s quick and easy and delicious.


 If your family doesn’t completely devour it, it will last up to a week, just wrap it in foil.

You can peel and seed them then shred or the grate zucchini when the produce is in season (and cheaper) and freeze pre-measured amounts in freezer bags.  

This recipe will make 2 loaves.

When my Mother has her bumper crop of zucchini she makes extra loaves to keep in the freezer. It’s a quick thaw to accompany coffee for unexpected company!
