Zucchini Bread

Here is one final Summer recipe on which to close out the Summer. It’s a Summer classic – Zucchini Bread! I’d be hard pressed to find a quick bread that’s more quintessentially Summer then Zucchini Bread, and the zucchini bread recipe I posted a few years ago is ridiculously decrepit.
