I grew up having Zucchini bread every summer, my Mom and my Grandma used to make it and I loved it. There was nothing better than warm zucchini bread with a good amount of butter spread over it and having that as a delicious snack. Yum!
I think I’ve mentioned before that my Mom has the largest garden in Iowa, that may be an exaggeration but seriously people this thing is monstrous. It can easily feed our entire family for most of the year. So, I’m lucky to get a lot of fresh produce from her including a big bag of fresh zucchini that I quickly turned into zucchini bread for the family.
