Right now, parts of our house are a complete wreck-a necessary consequence of home improvement. Amy and I decided to take a little time out and make some zucchini bread with zucchini from our garden.
Our favorite recipe is an old one from a vintage Betty Crocker cookbook. It probably uses too much sugar and it also calls for shortening and white flour. I know healthier versions exist, but still, we like it. We added about a half cup of chopped dried sour cherries to this batch, and in the past we’ve also added chopped nuts, raisins, dried cranberries and chocolate chips. (Combinations are good too!)
With a hot cup of coffee for me and hot tea for Amy, we were soon rested and restored and ready to get back to work.
What is your favorite quick bread-and what do you add to yours?
