Zucchini Bread

Recently I have been gifted loads of Zuchini from a few different friends this has been great as we didn’t grow any ourselves this year so the gift has satified my preserving addiction. I have already made Chutney and Pickles which I will write about in a separate post and still have so many left over! I will grate some and freeze them today for meals in winter but I felt inspired to make Zucchini bread for a yummy brunch yesterday and boy was it was so delicious I simply must share the recipe with you all.
