A few recipe notes:

  • After shredding your zucchini, wrap the shreds in a clean kitchen towel. Over your sink, give that towel a good squeeze. This will remove any access water from the zucchini.
  • This bread does freeze really well! If desired, you can place it in a freezer safe bag or container for future eating. It will stay good for a few months.

I thought this was too much zucchini when I was mixing it, but it was perfect! I made it for my mom’s birthday, and it was enjoyed by young and old alike. I baked it in 12 heart shaped breads. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
