Zucchini Bread

When I was on a visit with my Midwife, she had some fresh zucchini from her garden she offered me.  I used the couple  smaller ones she gave me for stir fry.  The very large one, she gave me, I was unsure what to do with..

Then it hit me! Zucchini bread.  I’ve never made it before. Figured I would give it a whirl. This bread didn’t last more then 2 hours once out of the oven! The boys loved it! Me too. 😉

The bread didn’t turn out pretty, but the taste was so delicious I wish I could have made two!  The recipe actually was for two. I made only one, as I didn’t have enough zucchini for two loafs.  You will notice the odd 1 1/2 egg part in the recipe below.  Other then that, it was easy to make half the recipe.   I will be making this again for sure.  Here is the source of the recipe.

Because I like to print out my own recipes, I’ve been on the look out for a way to do that on this blog. This plugin seems simple enough..  What do you think?

    My mom always made chocolate zucchini bread when I was a kid. Sooo good and such good memories just thinking of it now. I may just need to make some for my little family! Thanks for sharing this yummy looking recipe. :)

      It was delicious for sure! :) The plugin is “Easy Recipe” You can purchase the full version, which I am considering, although the free one works good for now. :)

    hmm, I don’t remember if I had a piece of that or not. I am sure it was yummy and I do remember saying I should bake some too. I need to get a zucchini so I can make some if the boys like it so much. :O)

      Daddy had most of it. I think you MAY have gotten a bite. I do think this weather would be perfect for this. As the smell in the kitchen is REALLY nice. :)

    I LOVE zucchini bread, but I had never made it before this summer when I had zucchini I needed to use from my garden. So I made some. The recipe I had was enough for two loaves, which as it turned out I have two totally different bread pans. One is non-stick aluminum and the other is glass. The one in the glass turned out fantastic. The one in the non-stick pan was AWFUL. Isn’t that weird. Same batch. Same cooking time. Same everything. Just a different pan. Anyway, I’ve been baffled by that ever since. Lol!

      That’s interesting the difference! Makes me want to get a glass one to try it on. 😉

      Every time I think about this bread I can practically smell it! Ahh, I need to make more. :)
