Bacon & Cheddar Zucchini Bread. The flavours are simply wonderful! This is delicious served warm from the oven or cooled. It has a texture of a cake, only the flavours are of course savoury. A really simple and easy recipe and very pleasing!
This is a moist, soft loaf / pound cake, and incredibly easy to make. They freeze very well, so always handy if you have unexpected visitors for a light lunch or brunch!
