Zucchini Bread

This is the best Zucchini Bread I have ever tasted and it is a favorite of my family. I have made the same amazing Zucchini Bread for decades. We use to grow our own zucchini and I made 35 loaves every year. I only made six loaves this year and I bought my zucchini for $1.00 at a farm stand. My kids and just about everyone else goes crazy over this bread. The first loaf is still warm and half gone already as I write this blog! My granddaughter would have eaten it hot out of the oven if I had let her!

This Zucchini Bread can be baked and stored in the freezer for up to one year if you freeze it the following way. After I bake it and cool it completely, I put it in a plastic bread bag, wrap the bag with foil after getting all of the air out and place the wrapped bread into a freezer bag. It has never dried out or gotten freezer burnt this way.

  1. Your advice on how to freeze cakes is timely in my house. I rarely bake as with only two of us it’s too tempting to eat it all. I’ve recently decided though to bake and divide immediately into single portions wrapped in the freezer for a once a week only treat. I’ll try your method of freezing for the portions.

  2. I make several different zucchini breads (blueberry zucchini, chocolate zucchini, one with pineapple) but this one looks good too. I will have to try it and add to my repertoire if the kids like it.
