Apple-Zucchini Bread

Apple-Zucchini Bread just seems so perfect for this time of year—early fall is when I’m inspired to bake apple-flavored things! This recipe not only has apples, but zucchini too, which is great—you can never have enough good zucchini recipes for all that zucchini from the garden, can you? Or in my case, from the farmer’s market!

This quick bread has a subtle apple flavor and is also flavored with cinnamon and nutmeg. You can add pecans or walnuts in it too (I didn’t add any nuts to the loaf pictured above). It’s a moist, dense loaf on the inside, and a little crispy and crumbly as you cut into it on the outside. Make sure you grease and flour your pan well–I found that I also needed to loosen the edges of the loaf with a knife so it would come out of the pan easily.

Chocolate Chip Loaf

When you’re baking a sweet treat, it’s hard to go wrong with anything that has chocolate chips in it! And if you are craving something chocolatey, this is a good recipe to try. I came up with it after doing some experimenting and tweaking in the kitchen. I was so eager to try a piece, I think I cut into the loaf a little too soon–the chocolate chips were still a little melty…but it was really good! And the chocolate frosting is a nice chocolate finishing touch (you can easily make the frosting thinner if you’d like it to be more of a glaze, or if you’re not crazy about frosting, the loaf is also good without it).
