Bread Family Favorite

Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread

This recipe comes from my great aunt. I always remember I loved her baked treats. Everything always tasted amazing. Her waffles, chocolate chip cookies, homemade ice cream, pies…. all were delicious. It was always a treat to go to her house. I remember this Zucchini Bread from when I was young and always thought her recipe was the best. When this month’s Bread Baker challenge was announced as quick breads, I knew I had to make her recipe.

Another favorite quick bread in our home is our Delightful Banana Bread. I encourage you to check out this recipe as well. Both of these make fantastic breakfasts, or an easy treat to pack in a lunch for work or school. They freeze well so they can be made ahead. It’s a great way to use produce from the garden or before it goes bad if you bought too much from the market.

#BreadBakers is a group of bread loving bakers who get together once a month to bake bread with a common ingredient or theme. Follow our Pinterest board right here. Links are also updated each month on this home page. We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient. This month’s theme is Quick Breads.

Quick breads are made with rising agents like baking powder and/or baking soda, not yeast. One bowl has the wet ingredients, another the dry. When mixed together they form a soft dough or very thick batter. The requirement for this challenge includes that the quick bread must be baked in a loaf pan.
