Almond Poppyseed Zucchini Bread

Almond Poppyseed Zucchini Bread

I have a case of the Monday’s. Ugh, I’ve had the last 9 days off and now getting back into the groove of things is hard. Granted I only do daycare so I get to stay home, but the sleeping in and being able to do what I wanted when I wanted was really nice. So today is going to take a little adjustment getting used to. 

I am seriously enjoying summer. BUT I honestly cannot wait until fall. I keep telling myself that summer is my favorite season but I think I’m lying to myself. Yes I love warm weather. For goodness sake I live in Minnesota, we have to enjoy it for the few months we have it. But there is something about the smell and the colors and the crispness of the air in fall that gets me. Seriously, the smell triggers this like olfactory sensory thing in me that brings back some sort of memory that I can’t quite put together but I know it’s a happy one. And let’s be honest who is not excited about all the pumpkin recipes!

So while I was on my vacation I did get quite a lot of cooking and baking done. I had like 3 zucchini’s that had to be used up and my husband almost refuses to eat it if he knows what he is eating. So I figured I’d make a bread of sorts so he wouldn’t know technically what he was eating. This turned out awesome. The flavors mesh really well together and its nice and moist. Add the almond glaze and your set!

2 cups shredded zucchini

2 cups powdered sugar

Pre-heat oven to 350. Line 2 9×5″ bread pans with tin foil and spray with cooking spray. Mix all bread ingredients besides zucchini together in large bowl until combined. Gently stir in your zucchini. Bake in oven for 1 hour or until center is set and toothpick comes out clean. Remove and let cool.

Meanwhile in bowl mix together all your glaze ingredients. Once bread is cool pour and spread glaze over tops of bread. Slice and serve!

    • I know right! I’m not used to making things with zucchini but I knew they made a lot of breads with it so I figured I’d add it to my fave bread and it worked! I also made zucchini lasagna, unfortunately it wasn’t pretty. Very tasty but cosmetically not viable.
