lemon Zucchini Crunch Bread

Silvie Dosser


One trick I use when baking at high temperatures is half-way or 3/4 time through Baking I place an aluminium oven liner on the lower shelf below my breads that are baking, this way they finish baking through without scorching and stays golden on the bottom.
My Kids don't even know it's healthy for them and they Love It because it's a fluffy sweet bread for Breakfast!
