Mom’s Zucchini Bread
Our Mom’s Zucchini Bread is absolutely the best! She made this all the time with fresh zucchini from her garden when we were growing up. As kids, it was the only thing with zucchini in it that we would eat willingly. We would eat it all summer long and never get tired of it. The house would always smell warm, slightly sweet and cinnamony and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a slice. I loved it then and I love it now. In fact, I just planted some zucchini in my garden so I can make it later this summer!
Tips for the Best Zucchini Bread
- Near the end of the summer, when you feel like you have zucchini coming out of your ears, put a few in a basket along with this recipe and some of the ingredients (or just give them a freshly baked loaf) and give it to your friends and neighbors.. they will love you forever.
- This recipe makes two loaves so you can eat one today and freeze the other loaf for later. I will make several loaves and freeze them to save for a rainy day when I feel like a sweet treat but don’t feel like making it.
- If you don’t have a garden overflowing with zucchini, most likely most markets have the vegetable in stock year round for pretty cheap. You can make this bread any time; it doesn’t just have to be in the summer.
- Use coconut oil in place of regular oil in this recipe and it is FANTASTIC!
- For an even sweeter treat, top each slice with a spread of homemade cream cheese frosting. Delicious!
