Pineapple Zucchini Nut Bread

Pineapple Zucchini Nut Bread

There’s nothing better than the smell of fresh-baked bread and in this case, zucchini bread. This recipe isn’t your traditional zucchini bread though;  I’ve added a touch of pineapple to sweeten the loaf.  It makes a large batch, therefore I mix things up by making 1 loaf and several muffins for an easy fix on the go.   … Continue reading
