When I make this recipe Jordan, my husband, takes his first bite of the tender warm sugar cinnamony bread, closes his eyes and says: this is my childhood. I’m always fascinated by how our senses take us back in time like a time machine. We transport to a different decade, another place, and we experience a piece of our past. I love that food can do that. This is a recipe that my sweet mother in law made in her house every week for her three hungry boys. Jordan remembers eating this sandwich style with butter in the middle for lunch and grabbing a slice after school before running to the backyard. It is truly the best zucchini bread I’ve ever tasted. Really, the Best! The cinnamon spice with the perfect amount of sweetness complements the mild flavor of the zucchini. I always feel good eating it and giving it to my children since there is a vegetable in it! I know you and your family will fall in love with this bread. I usually make two batches when I have a lot of zucchini and keep a loaf in the freezer for a rainy day. Enjoy and create a taste of home with your family today.

Made with Amore,
