ZUCCHINI NUT BREAD/CAKE

CC MCCART-FROST

By

Pretty sure everyone has their own recipe for this tasty delight. When I make it in loaf pans, we slice it, toast it and slather either butter or cream cheese on it (maybe even both?) for breakfast or a snack. I also bake it in a bundt pan, slice it in half horizontally and frost with cream cheese frosting as you would a regular cake and sprinkle more chopped nuts on top.

Really wanted to take a photo of the one I recently made, but unfortunately only crumbs remain on the cake plate...LOL
