Big Joe’s Delicious Zucchini Bread

Extra zucchini from the garden? This is a great and delicious zucchini bread recipe that is a staple for me in the summer months. You can even make extra and freeze them for later in the year.

I really like zucchini bread and this recipe was given to me while putting together my cookbook. It comes from Robyn Mozeika of East Windsor and it’s absolutely terrific. It is one of the most moist breads I have ever tasted. You know I always ponder the thought whether zucchini bread is a dessert or a snack or a side dish. I have no idea. All I know is that it’s good.

I asked Robyn how she became acquainted with this recipe and Robyn writes:

I started making this recipe several years ago as a way to introduce green veggies to my children. During the past few summers we would ride our bikes to a local U-pick farm, pick our zucchini and quickly pedal home to make our loaves of bread. We make it so much that my daughter, CJ (age 9), decided this past year to start her own garden in our backyard so the zucchini is always on hand in the summertime!

Thanks, Robyn, for the recipe and I hope you all enjoy a slice of this as a side dish, snack or dessert.
