We made this zucchini bread twice over our winter holiday this year. It is so, so good. It fills the house with that perfect cozy baking smell. The crust has just the right crunch when it first comes out of the oven. It is delicious the second day – but will lose the outside crunch as it cools. By the way, my younger son designed the stunning layout of the photo above. He was six when he did it. Quite an eye for design, don’t you think?
