Harvest-Zucchini-Bread from Cupcakes-and-Crinoline #zucchini #bread

I have a serious carb addiction.  Put a carb in front of me and then move back or things could get ugly! ;) I hadn’t made zucchini bread in a while and last week I bought some zucchinis for a chicken and rice soup recipe.  I only needed one zucchini so I had more left.

I used some for a loaf of Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread that I posted at LCI and the other for this Harvest Zucchini Bread.

I never tried this recipe before so I wasn’t sure if we would like it or not but thankfully we did!  It’s moist and delicious with a hint of mild (think pumpkin bread) flavoring to make it perfect for dessert, breakfast {with coffee of course} or a snack.

Harvest-Zucchini-Bread-perfect-with-coffee-from-cupcakes-and-crinoline #zucchini #bread

I like to make extra loaves when I make quick breads to freeze for when company comes over or when the family needs something home-baked and I don’t have the time (or ingredients) to come up with something.

Even though it’s not fall or the traditional harvest time if you can find zucchini at a good price this is a great recipe to try.
