Zucchini Bread

[click image to enlarge]

This is delicious bread. The fact that you can eat it for breakfast, dessert, or with coffee or tea makes it so versatile and quick to disappear. When we moved into our neighborhood, our new neighbors gave us a loaf of zucchini bread. Our family just couldn't get enough of it so my mother asked for the recipe. Whenever I enjoy this bread, it is comforting and homey, and I remember their generosity. Hopefully, it can be the same for you. It is a simple recipe and it yields two loaves which are easy to store. The ingredients are simple, starting with zucchini.
