Best Ever Zucchini Bread

– – – – – 
I have grown up with this amazing loaf!  It’s moist, flavourful and delicious!
– – – – – 
And one of the things I love most about this recipe is that it makes 2 loaves,
so you can freeze one for later!
This time of year always makes me want to start to think about getting ready for winter.
I know that may seem a little crazy to be doing in the middle of August, but let’s face it, right now, where I live the produce is a’ plenty, and it’s time to squirrel it away!

So here’s the recipe!  I hope you love it!

  • I like to line my loaf tins with wax paper.  They come out perfectly, and they also look nice!
