Zucchini Carrot Bread
Serves 4
A great recipe to use your fresh zucchini from the garden. I personally prepared this recipe for 600 passengers aboard a cruise ship and received MANY compliments. You can also make the same cream cheese icing you'd serve with carrot cake and it goes well with this recipe.
