Zucchini bread is an all-time summer favorite for almost any household with a zucchini plant in their garden…and their neighbors who keep finding anonymous donations of zucchini in the back seat of their cars. With this tasty and healthful recipe, you just might find yourself sneaking around behind the stealthy zucchini donors to snatch up those unwanted squash.

Tip: If your loaf pans are 8″x4″, go ahead and use them and plan to increase the bake time, checking every 5 minutes for doneness.
