Zucchini Snack Bread

Dad drove a logging truck through the beautiful forests and farmlands of northern Idaho's panhandle. Some days I would join him, and Mom would send along this moist bread for us to snack on.

    My favorite zucchini recipe for years now. Can’t believe there aren’t more reviews. The spice is just right and I use them in other quick bread recipes now with great results. Has that bakery flavor to it that along with the moistness makes it outstanding. Thank you for such a good recipe!

    This is the first year I planted Zucchini so was looking for good recipes -- this one is a keeper! I made for Son and Grandson and the first loaf went very, very quickly. Great flavor and very moist

    This makes a wonderful quick bread. The spice and sweetness is just right, and very moist. Disappeared at work very quickly!
