Summer is my favorite. Everything is fresh, flavorful and stung with the smoky tang of barbecue. But my most favorite summer food is actually a sweet bread - and one made with vegetables to boot. That's right - nutritious, delicious zucchini bread.
This summer in particular, I have been very fortunate to have been given LOTS and LOTS of garden-ripe zucchini from my green-thumbed connections. And after making lots of fried zucchini, zucchini pizzas, zucchini parmesan & grilled zucchini it was time to add some sweet into the mix with some lovely, moist, delicious zucchini bread.
Not only have my boyfriend and I been enjoying lots of this delectable treat, but I have been giving it away by the loaf-load to family, friends and anyone standing remotely near me that looks famished in the least.
I told you, LOTS of zucchini fell into my hands this summer!
Enjoy this bread long into the fall & winter, too! It freezes & thaws very well and will keep in the freezer for up to three months. Just take it out to thaw a few hours ahead of time.
