This year we decided a backyard garden would be fun…..or let me rephrase that…..I thought it would be fun, and my two kids thought “oh boy, here we go again.” The garden planting from seeds, building my fabulous above ground box, plus my crazy awesome tomato trellis, those things are a story for another day.
I want to fast forward today to the best zucchini bread in all the land.
With 3 gorgeous varieties of zucchinis growing fruitfully in my little garden, recipe taste testing and tweaking was the new FUN of the summer. Zucchini chips, zucchini lasagna, oven baked zucchini with cheese….none of which the kids liked….tasted too much like zucchini. Go figure.
How about a bread…I could make that one work.
In a bread, you won’t get the taste of the veggie, you just get the moist goodness…..like no other ingredient I’ve ever added before.
Who doesn’t love a fresh baked bread for breakfast, snack or really just anytime.
Next came taste testing, trying out adding different flavors (banana, chocolate, lemon, apple…….) until finally BLUEBERRY!
This bread is CRACK!
It is the perfect mixture of not too sweet, texture and moistness from the zucchini is all just magical.
Once I perfected the recipe, I have been making this bread 3 loaves at a time, sharing them with family and friends.
Nobody believes there is zucchini in it, and sometimes the whole loaf is gone in one day.
No guilt needed though, it’s got vegetables in it…..so it’s good for you!
Are you ready to make this magical crack bread?
I’ll apologize now if your kids or your parents (I try to deliver a weekly loaf to my parents – as they have said “This might be the best thing you have EVER made!” WHOA – that’s a statement people!) get hooked on this wonderful goodness.
