Blue Ribbon Recipe

Moist and tender, this zucchini bread is sort of like a rich banana nut bread with sweet bits of pineapple throughout. Enjoy as an afternoon snack with a cup of coffee or tea. This zucchini pineapple banana bread is not overly sweet. A delicious recipe if you don't like a sweet dessert. When zucchini is plentiful in the summer, definitely add this to your menu.
