When Life Gives You Zucchini...
If that headline sounds familiar, it should be. Wednesdays are back to Baking Days at the Js!
Sous chef and chief cookie baker, Daughter #2, has returned to her post to whip up some new culinary creations for the family bakery. (And she is just about to flip the switch to "5" instead of "off" in this photo--OOPS!)
On the menu board today? Zucchini bread...or, as we like to call it in kid-friendly terms, breakfast cake!
The zucchini and the bread recipe come courtesy of my Mom, who has been making this for years. She actually she lost her own recipe and had to get it back from a daughter--and not me, surprisingly. I have been making some form of zucchini bread since high school (see below), but I had to reclaim the recipe from Mom on our last visit over the summer.
Anyhow, days home from preschool go by so much faster when we're busy in the kitchen. And someone will be privy to some really good bread...ah, breakfast cake!...at a time in the future when he or she least expects it.
It's nice to have two Kitchen Aid(e)s!
