Zucchini Bread

What do you do with mutant zucchinis?

Big Zucchini

You make zucchini bread!

I once knew a girl that told me that she made the best zucchini bread. I was young and didn't know any better so I thought that zucchini bread was kind of a weird concept. Anyway I never sampled this infamous zucchini bread and had been curious ever since...

At work one day I happened upon a box of mutant cooking squashes in the break room, courtesy of the senior partner of the law firm where I work. I took one home with no plans for it until I thought back to those stories of delicious zucchini bread, so I set out to make my own....

The usual drill: simple as possible. Zucchini bread apparently has nuts usually and occasionally raisins. I had neither of those on hand so I made mine "pure". It was moist, it was sweet, it had a bit of zucchini-esque. My sister says there is a savory version as well, so maybe if she can pass the recipe along I will give it a try....I still have a half of that mutant left....

(Note: Also appreciated the fact that I now know how to spell zucchini. Spelling Bee Championship here I come!)

Zucchini Bread
