I’m so ashamed. Two years of blogging, 4 CSA seasons and nary a simple zucchini bread recipe to show for it. I hang my head in shame. I finally decided it was time to fix this problem, after all zucchini bread is a staple every summer when I’m over-flowing with them from my CSA.
I was recently at a local coffee shop when I spotted some nutella swirl bread in their pastry case. Staring at it (although sadly I didn’t give in), I thought, self you need to do something with a nutella swirl. While this bread is awesome on it’s own, that little bit of nutella swirled on top is just what it needed to make it the best zucchini bread ever.
Since it’s the beginning of the month, that means it is time for The Leftovers Club again. It’s always exciting to find out who might be paired with, but this month was extra fun because I got to mail this Nutella swirl zucchini bread to Aly at Cooking In Stilettos! Aly is a fellow pug mother, which meant I also packed a little something extra in my box for her Souspug. The little guy hasn’t been feeling well lately and you don’t know sadness until you’ve seen a sad pug. The face will melt your heart. Oh and if you are curious what Aly sent me? The most awesome, delicious brownie with a s’mores topping! mmmm! mmmmm! Plus something for my guy!
He’s totally earned his nickname of superpug too now that he’s learned to jump high enough onto our bed.
So now I have two requests, go make this tender, moist zucchini bread – with just a little hint of chocolate this weekend. You’ll thank me and hug a pug. 🙂
