I remember my mother making this sweet quick bread when I was growing up in Pennsylvania Dutch country. It's a great way to use some of the extra zucchini from the garden. It freezes well and can be frozen to give as gifts for thanksgiving or Christmas which is what we did for many years...... what a great gift! A taste of the Summer for the winter holidays!
