Many-Splendored Quick Bread
This tea bread from Rose's Heavenly Cakes is a unique variation of the many zucchini breads which became quite popular. Every Christmas zucchini bread was on my grandmother's plates of holiday cookie trays she gave away. I was quite spoiled by that simple gesture and never bothered to make it on my own. I'm very glad Rose created this recipe.
Combining zucchini with carrots, banana and lemon zest gave the bread a completely different flavor than ordinary zucchini bread. I baked these in three paper pans, leftover from the Vanilla Bean Pound Cakes the HCB'ers made. It is a lovely recipe and from the positive reaction, I'm quite certain it will be requested many times.
