Zucchini Bread


My grandparents’ neighbor is a wonderful baker who frequently brings over desserts for us to sample.  One of our favorites is her zucchini bread.  She shared this recipe with me, and I adapted it for gluten-free baking.

Note: The original recipe makes 2 loaf pans of zucchini bread, using 3 eggs.  When I halved the recipe, I used 2 eggs.
