Yummy in My Tummy Zucchini Bread

"I make this delicious, moist bread every summer when the zucchini crop comes out of the garden. Double the recipe...all that extra garden zucchini will become heavenly loaves that you can share :) I usually make about three dozen loaves all together before the summer is over, and many are made to be given away. Usually the first loaf disappears before the other loaves can cool! This is the "most moist" zucchini bread I have ever tasted! (say that 3 times fast!) Make lots.....they won't go to waste, and you can freeze em!"

    This recipe was much less greasy than one that uses oil - tastes better, too. I used the double ingredient recipe as shown and made 7 small loaves out of it. Cooking time in my oven was @ 8 minutes less because of smaller pans. I only used cinnamon (it's all I had) and the taste is still very good.<br/>(Sarah - cream cheese frosting sounds great. I like to spread whipped cream cheese on a thick slice of the bread - yum!)

    Mmmmm... this is the best zucchini bread EVER!!! I know this because "mommy bean" is my mommy! You will not be sorry if you make this yummy recipe! I always have so much zucchini from my garden, so I shred it in my food processor and freeze it 3 cups at a time in freezer bags. I just thaw out a bag and make this bread all year long! I make it in a 13x9 pan and cook it for 45 minutes. I also make a cream cheese frosting to put on top. 8 oz cream cheese, 4 tbs butter, 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar, 3 tbs. milk. It's sooooo good!

    So yummy! I made it last night, with a couple of my own twists- subtracted a cup of sugar, tripled the cinnamon, and swapped the raisins for mini chocolate chips. Divine!!!


I am the proud mother of 3..... 2 girls and a boy. This is a picture of myself and my oldest daughter, who is now a married woman, and is a Recipe Zaar member, known as "Sarah in New York"!! I have been married for 30 years to a wonderful Christian man who is crazy about me, and calls me "Bean". Everyone wonders how he doesn't weigh 300 pounds, the way our family eats! I was raised by a mom that was a chef from West Virginia, and I learned to love to cook....and to appreciate how to use a good glassful of reserved bacon fat ") My family has been in ministry to troubled teenagers in upstate New York for 28 years. Both my daughters are married now, and we all work in the same ministry, one teaching music like myself, and the other, a teacher in the high school. My girls and I also travel and sing with teens from our ministry throughout the year in churches, schools, and detention centers all over the USA and Canada. My son was in Nigeria for a year, teaching English in a Christian school, and is now back in the U.S. attending college in upstate N.Y. He is an accomplished guitarist and is one of the worship leaders in his church. I love this website that my daughter, "Sarah in New York" introduced me to! :) I am a blessed Mommy Bean :) Please check out the link to the home for troubled teens where we work! www.freedomvillageusa.com <img src="http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/potluckpbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg">
