This Apple Zucchini Bread is the perfect fall loaf of bread.
Hey friends, welcome back to Foodie Friday!
Where every 2nd Friday of the month I, Sandra from A Dash of Sanity, will be sharing one of my favorite recipes with the friends and followers of Love Bakes Good Cakes.
I absolutely love my Grandma’s recipe for zucchini bread. It is my favorite recipe of zucchini. It is easy just to throw together in a matter of minute, bake in the oven and have a fresh slice right when it is out of the oven, and don’t forget that slice of butter on top. Oh, it just melts…okay I am drooling now.
Do you family recipes like that? You know the ones, you will never stray from. And the ones you will take to bake-offs because you know anything Grandma makes, is the best. Well that is the case here.
Today though, I added a little fall twist to it.
Adding in some apples. I also replaced some of the oil with applesauce and it is still just as moist.
When I shared this with the family they loved it, I was worried the kids would freak out over the apple chunks, but they did, although I think I saw Madden hiding his apples under his napkin. (He is my picky eater!) But hey, it’s still a win!
I would love to hear what your favorite family recipe is, share it below in the comments.
