Rise and Shine

Good morning everyone. Its time to rise and shine for this Tuesday. I have a couple of days off-I love working part time. I have a fresh zucchini calling my name in the kitchen, so I believe that I will get busy later on and make some zucchini bread. They are in season right now, and it has been a long time since I've done any baking with zucchini. I have to thank my good friend Fredo for the idea. He posted a picture of his delicious fresh loaf of zucchini bread last week and that gave me the idea. My husband will be happy to have a piece tonight after we finish supper. What's your favorite vegetable or fruit bread? ~Pixabay Photo

Speaking of that...
So there are these trees...in The Emperor's Garden...and on these trees grow a small, clear fruit with an orange area on the stem end...and they grow in bunches...

I like banana bread but I haven't got a good recipe, mine never tastes as good as it should.

I love love love zucchini bread. Fredo gave me the idea too and I used up my over ripe bananas with a banana bread. I certainly would rather have zucchini bread.

I may make some muffins out of some of the batter, bread is nice, but I like muffins too.

@Juliaacv I like muffins too as they are portion controlled. I tend to eat more than I should when I make a loaf of zucchini or banana bread

@Marilynda1225 I like muffins for the same reason, and mine are not those huge mini cakes like they sell at the bakeries. I am actually taste-testing one right now. They turned out nicely.

I like zucchini bread, but also banana bread. I will make stuffed zucchini tomorrow, there are plenty in the garden.

@marlina I have both, fresh, on the kitchen counter, too bad that you're not closer or I'd share.

@Bensen32 Basically most kinds of muffins come from essentially the same batter as a loaf does. So, strawberry, blueberry, you name it, you can find a recipe for it and bake it up.

@crazyhorseladycx It depends on the nuts and how many, when used in a recipe sometimes they go over and he's okay with them, but other times its a no-no.

I liked it, my husband had a slice after supper and then asked for 2 more, so I think that he really liked it.

I did up half of the batter in a loaf and then the other half in muffins, I prefer muffins and my husband loves the bread-he slices it thickly.

I love zucchini bread. When I bake it I put it in the freezer for a few days before I eat it. It lets the flavors intermingle with each other. Your bread looks terrific.

We planted some zucchini in our very first garden the year that we were married. We planted too many seeds and had so many zucchini, I froze a lot of it and would make a couple of loaves of bread every weekend so that my husband could take some in his lunch to work the following week. We ate so much of it that I think that we had our share, but I really am looking to enjoying these loaves.

@Juliaacv Sounds like it might have been too much of a good thing. For a little while anyway.

I like banana nut bread also, carrot bread too, but that is rather labour intense as you have to peel all of those carrots. I made 1 loaf today and a dozen muffins out of the batter.
