Cinnamon Pumpkin Zucchini Bread ~ Pumpkin Zucchini Bread with a Cinnamon Swirl!
Anyone else out there hanging with some Zucchini from their garden like me? I finally shredded up the rest of it and then started handing it out to my family and friends. There was no way this girl was going to use it all up. Sure I could freeze it and use it during the winter but the blogger in me always gets distracted by Christmas treats, Valentine’s Day treats, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter and the list goes on and on. Trust me, I’ve made a gazillion loaves of Zucchini Bread this year, not that any of us are complaining!
I’m always trying out new things WAY before the season actually happens. It’s a fault of the blogger in me. I might have Peppermint on my mind soon. I really got to start breaking into some Thanksgiving dishes soon too!
For now I’m focusing on Pumpkin. All things pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin. (If you’re in doubt, just checking out this Pumpkin Bread Recipe with Caramel Glaze!!!) Anyone complaining? I hope not!
Don’t worry I throw in a few main dishes and other desserts that aren’t stuffed full of pumpkin, but beware there will be a lot of pumpkin in your future!
If you are looking to transition from summer to fall this is the perfect bread for you. My sister-in-law was over when I made it and she said, “It tastes like fall!” Perfectly moist bread with a cinnamon swirl in it. You can’t go wrong with this one!
