The time of year has come when nearly every garden is overflowing with zucchini… And let’s be honest. You’re probably not going to use that much zucchini in your lunch/dinner recipes. And your kids certainly aren’t likely to welcome it.
Oh. Only mine are anti green veggie? Hm.
Either way, after roasting it, sauteing it, pickling it and adding it to sauces, I’ve finally had enough of that big green veggie. And yet, I still have some. What’s a girl to do?
Oh right. Zucchini bread. And zucchini bread is best when it’s made with minimal effort. What can I say? I can be lazy when it comes to my baking.
Laziness really isn’t much of a problem when your zucchini bread comes out looking like this. In fact, I don’t think anyone even realized how easy it was for me to make. Let’s keep that between you and me. I don’t want my husband to realize that I really wasn’t slaving away in the kitchen to make one of his favorite treats.
We also won’t mention that I’ve been eating several slices at a time, slathered in butter. But really… can you blame me?
This zucchini bread is definitely one to share. After all, the recipe makes 2 loaves. Or you could just eat them both. I won’t judge you for it!
