Not Your Average Zucchini Bread [RECIPE]
If you have extra zucchini, try preparing this delicious bread with it.
After preparing several meatless recipes, my husband asked me, “Do you think you could make zucchini bread with the remaining zucchini?” Sure, I thought, wondering where I put that recipe. After scouring the kitchen, I found the infamous Zucchini Bread recipe. This bread is so moist and flavorful that my husband devours piece after piece (even though he’s full). Praise indeed! I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!
