This recipe goes together quickly and produces two nicely shaped loaves. This is a wonderful alternative to chocolate zucchini bread, too. It’s a vegetable, right?
I know your family or guests will enjoy this bread! I like having quick breads in the freezer ready to use. I pre-slice them before freezing so I can take out only what I’ll use.
