The Best Zucchini Bread

A few weekends ago Lisa’s mom homemade a loaf of zucchini bread for brunch. Each of my kids took a slice. And then another slice. And then another. And then over the next few days Caroline asked me 50+ times to “please make us some sikini bread!!” Finally, I agreed and texted Lisa for her mom’s recipe…

And our large loaf was demolished before the end of the weekend.

Yield: 2 loaves

This looks delish. I have been craving zucchini bread since summer began. This may be the recipe my mom used. Thanks for sharing. And, any recipe that makes two loaves (after all that prep), I'm there!
