Zucchini Bread

Zucchini-Bread.jpg
Zucchini bread! Another great use of the over abundance of zucchini this time of year! This loaf was almost devoured by hungry cranky munchkins before I remembered to take a picture, they had just came home from school.I love to make a few loaves at a time and if they last past a day I wrap one up and freeze it for later. This loaf has a nice complex fall flavor with plenty of cinnamon,  a hint of vanilla and a bit of nutmeg! I also have started freezing shredded zucchini for later already pre measured to the amount needed to make 2 loaves later.
