Zucchini bread probably conjures up the memories. Gram’s cooking or picking zucchini in your family garden or even …well I have no zucchini bread flashbacks and this is the first time I’ve ever made it. It will not be the last!!. This bread has a soft and moist texture….thanks to all the shredded zucchini. It also has just the right amount of sweetness and the perfect touch of cinnamon. This recipe pulls together in about 15 minutes and is your cup of coffee’s best friend.
