Tis the season for Zucchini Bread!

April 28, 2012 in Gardening , Sweets and Treats

I can’t believe no one was outraged that my family was making me stand in the hot kitchen

and bake just days after having a baby!

The truth is that the zucchini and squash are plentiful around here

and I LOVE zucchini bread!

So I baked!

I used the exact same recipe that I use for zucchini muffins, I just put it in bread pans instead. I like it as bread much better because it stays super moist and does not stick to the parchment paper.

I do cook it a little longer, like 40 minutes at 350. My oven timer is broken so I just kinda watch it!

I have experimented with using cranberries, cherries and chocolate chips recently. So far, cranberries definitely win!

I have also swapped the pecans for walnuts. Use what you have and make it work. It’s worth it!!

    Yummy… I loved cooking when my daughter was little in the sling. There is something magic about swaying a little one while making good food that makes you feel like super woman.

    Thanks for the recipe. Just made these last night and they were a hit for my family this morning. My family is currently adopting the paleo lifestyle so this was a nice addition to our breakfast/snack list. I have two small kids, 3 and 2, and expecting my 3rd soon, and was wondering how you manage birthday parties and festivities with your kids. For instance, mine have a birthday party to attend on Thursday and I am certain there will be “junk food” at the party… do your kids typically eat/splurge at these functions or are they old enough to realize to wait and eat something better when they get home? Just trying to figure out how to work it all!
