Zucchini Bread

Looking for a great breakfast recipe? Check out this zucchini bread recipe from www.drugstoredivas.net.Every summer, a group of my family and friends would go camping for a week. The adults would pack coolers with food and drinks. My aunt used to make zucchini bread a lot during this time. One year, my cousin was old enough to help and made the loaf herself.

That was the year a squirrel climbed into their car when they were unpacking their camping gear … and ate the bread!

I actually don’t remember ever seeing zucchini bread at any family function again. It popped into my head recently, so of course, I had to ask my aunt for her recipe. It has changed since the year the squirrel ate it. It’s a lot healthier now, but still tastes just as great.

What’s great about this recipe is that you can freeze the second loaf. I wrap it in foil, then place it in a freezer safe bag. If you’re having overnight guests, pull it out and let it defrost in the fridge. It will be ready for your guests the next day.

If you make this and you need it a little sweeter, you can add a dollop of honey too. Or, if make it with 3/4 white flour and 1/4 whole wheat flour, then continue the recipe as is.

    We always have too much zucchini in the summer and this is a great way to use it.
