Lemon Zucchini Bread

Lemon Zucchini Bread Recipe
Tis the season of endless zucchini from our garden, so I made a loaf of Lemon Zucchini Bread to celebrate! 

It was the perfect addition to brunch last weekend. The flavors are bright, and light from the lemon. No one will even realize it's loaded with zucchini, unless they see the little green specks. I'm lucky if a loaf lasts a few hours in our house.

I will usually pre-shred, and measure the zucchini to freeze, so I can make loaves throughout the winter. It's the perfect way to make sure your zucchini doesn't go bad.

If I'm going to be honest the biggest reason I grow zucchini is to make all the different types of breads and cakes like:
It's almost all about the desserts, right? Is that bad?

Never mind don't answer that..

I also make Zucchini and Summer Squash with Ginger quite a bit, which is a simple side if your looking to change things up. The strong flavors pair perfectly with the zucchini.
