Zucchini Bread, Noel's

Colleen Sowa


My daughter Noel makes the best veggie and fruit breads... This one is a family favorite!

Sometimes she puts optional ingredients in... sometimes she makes a simple zucchini bread... She likes to make it different ways depending if she wants to make it a meal side or a dessert.

I was lucky to be at her home while she was making a few different types...
