Garden-fresh zucchini is a dime-a-dozen during the late summer months. I love making zucchini bread because it's a healthier sweet bread version, right? Well, at least it's simply scrumptious and you'll be sure to have a winner every time. This zucchini bread is rich and moist, easy to toast; just serve with butter. Yum!
