I love to bake!

Most of you know this. I love to bake. I'll try just about anything if it's some kind of baked sweet yummy goodness. Today was zuchini bread, yes I made some a few weeks ago too!! Get over it! ROF Gpa BS (aka my FIL, Billy Sam) gave me some monster zuchinis. I had to make them into bread!

So here's the play by play! I'll post the recipe I used at the end in case anyone has any zuchinis laying around!

Here's a pic of the zuchini so you can see what I mean when I say 'monster'.

The ingredients:

The 'wet' ingredients blending together...

Next add the 'dry' stuff...carefully. This part can be messy.

The finished 'batter'... see the green from the zuchini? mmmm

Mini loaf pan.... borrowed this from my mom. I like the idea of these mini loaves because you get more 'edge' and the edge is my favorite part!

No pics 'in' the oven sorry!!

But here is the finished product and OMG it is delicious!

And here's the recipe I used. It's from
