homemade zucchini bread

Always delicious and moist. I love the way the flavors combine especially the ground cloves and cinnamon. You can make this any time of year but I especially like making these breads in the fall and winter seasons. Once cooled you can microwave each slice plain or with pad of butter or eat cold.
