Nanny’s Zucchini Bread – A Family Favorite!

A loaf of Nanny's Zucchini Bread

I came so close to not even posting this recipe for Nanny’s Zucchini Bread. This zucchini bread is something that my Nanny has been making for as far back as I remember. Every single summer my Nanny and Papa have had a garden, and they always grow zucchini in that garden. Nanny always uses those zucchini to make this bread that we all go crazy over. I can not remember ever going on a vacation with my family that Nanny did not bring this. We actually ask for this so often, that I am pretty sure she keeps a freezer full of it so that she has some ready to go at all times. I decided that I would share this recipe, because I know how much she loves to share this bread, so I think (hope) that Nanny will be glad I shared the recipe here!
