The Perfect Zucchini Bread

Elevate your breakfast (or any meal) with this delicious, nutritious, and easy-to-make bread. This bread comes together quickly and easily in just one bowl, so cleanup is a breeze.

This bread isn't too sweet, but I make it this way on purpose because I like to top it with tasty spreads (see my suggestions below). Sometimes I like to serve this bread with savory dishes, too, like chicken or turkey. However, if you'd like to make the bread sweeter, it's easy to do; just increase the sugar up to 1/2 cup or as desired.
