Classic Zucchini Bread 

Another zucchini bread recipe to help you use all your fresh zucchini….

You have no need to look for another zucchini bread recipe, here is the best one out there. I’m absolutely in love with this bread. It’s super moist and I love the subtle hint of cinnamon. Plus, you don’t have to pull out a mixer, just mix it up by hand. This recipe makes two loaves, you can make a loaf for yourself and a loaf for a friend. I chose to give a loaf to my friend Ana Maria, she raved over this bread. We both enjoyed it for breakfast with coffee. It took us only two mornings to finish off this bread…. yeah it’s that good. We both agreed that the cranberries and pecans were our favorite part, they added flavor and texture. Make this bread as some as possible! Please share it with a friend, they will love you for it.

Here’s My Notes

1)The pecans and dried cranberries are optional, but I really think it takes the bread to the next level.

2)I like to make half of this batter in a loaf and the other half into muffins.
