Zucchini Bread

A few years ago, the hubs, my sister and I all headed down to historic St. Charles to swing by their Farmer’s Market.  I love going to the farmers market on a Saturday morning.  Fresh fruits and vegetables, homemade jams,  pies and more! That particular day we picked up a homemade treat — a loaf of homemade Zucchini Bread.  Oh my goodness. I remember thinking how moist and delicious it was and the childhood memories that flooded me.

Isn’t it crazy how a smell can take you on a walk down memory lane?  I was overwhelmed with memories, the days I came home from school on a winter day to a warm house with the aroma of something delicious being baked in the oven.  I’m so grateful for those memories.  There’s something about filling a home with the sweet aroma of homemade cookies, pies, or breads.  As I got older, I remember my dad creating magic with a bread maker as well. He made a mean English Muffin bread.  Always fresh and warm.  Today those smells make me want to grab a cup of hot tea or coffee and a magazine or book.

Recently, when my mom and dad were visiting, I got up early and whipped up a loaf of Zucchini Bread.  It was moist and delicious with a hint of cinnamon.  I hope you’ll give it a try and enjoy it as much as we do.

    I can almost smell that bread. I certainly agree about certain smells leaving us with distinct memories. It’s great you had the ingredients at hand to make your zucchini bread for your parents, lucky them.
    When I was quite young (before we left Cleveland), My Mother and I would take the street car downtown to a certain Jewish bakery to get their bread, oh the smells, I still love Jewish Rye bread, heated up with butter. Oh me I’ll never be skinny. Can close my eyes and picture in my mind how our little kitchen nook seating looked where we ate the bread. Was a special treat when we got home if I’d been good on the street car.
    Also an Aunt that lived in Akron made bread every day and when we’d go visit her house would have that fragrance. I always associated the smell of bread with that Aunt.
    I’ll pin the recipe so I can print it out. Happy week

    I love zucchini bread and this photo looks delicious, Kelly! Yum. My husband, an avid and outspoken zucchini hater even loves this bread. Let’s face it, it tastes more like yummy spice cake than veggies. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
