With zucchini season at its peak, there’s no better way to celebrate than with batches and batches of zucchini bread. And if you happen to have a humongous specimen lurking in your garden, this is the dish for you – the seeds of larger zucchini are tough and dry, but you won’t even notice when it’s grated into bread. For a classic, down-home zucchini bread recipe, we turned to Paula, of course.

5 Reasons we Love Paula’s Zucchini Bread

  1. 5-stars and 587 (and counting) reviews (“Best use of zucchini ever!” says Allison from New Jersey)
  2. Small loves make great gifts – Paula bakes a batch to give
  3. Not a single stick of Butter + a Veggie = Healthy? Maybe?
  4. Cinnamon, nutmeg and pecans, oh my! Plus a chocolate chip version, if you have a sweet tooth.
  5. It’s an obvious choice for breakfast, but also a welcome addition to cookouts and potlucks – breadbaskets everywhere.
