On a recent outing to our local farmers market I couldnt resist buying a few extra-large zucchini from one of the venders for a $1 each. I knew when I bought them that I would be making zucchini bread with them.
Todays recipe is made with butter and sugar. The bread is sweet and moist. I tell you these facts upfront because although I could have made these with healthier substitutes I chose not to for the sake of wanting to eat a small slice of sweet buttery zucchini bread that tasted as good as it looked.
Most days we eat pretty healthy but there are days when nothing else but a slice of sweet bread will do in the early afternoon with a cup of hot coffee. This is what I call a moms prerogative.
Although my kids know there is shredded zucchini baked in the bread, they dont seem to mind one bit. In fact, if anything, they are a bit confused on how such delicious bread could also include zucchini.
This is not one of those sneaky vegetable recipes. Instead, I share with you a simple recipe that happens to include zucchini.
Next time you are at the market, pick yourself up a giant zucchini or two. After you bring it home, make yourself a cup of coffee and bake this bread. Youll thank me for it. Enjoy!
