Spiced Zucchini Bread

 As the days slowly begin to get shorter, I am beginning to think about fall baking - pumpkin bread, warm drinks filled with seasonal spices and a plethora of apple desserts.  A great prelude into fall baking is zucchini bread, as it incorporates many of the same ingredients that are used in fall recipes.  Growing up I was never a fan of zucchini that was grown in our garden, but when my mom made a batch of zucchini bread, my tune slowly changed to actually liking this green vegetable.  I opted to make spiced zucchini bread, an intensely flavorful treat thanks to an array of spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves.  I paired this bread with vibrant billy buttons, or as I refer to them as balls of sunshine.  When you look at them, don't they just make you happy?

  2. I LOVE zucchini bread, but sadly, I am a terrible baker. I really have no talent or instinct when it comes to baking. I even burn the Pillsbury easy make cookies! Maybe I can convince my Mom to make this recipe for me! :)
