This zucchini pecan bread is seriously tasty! I had it for breakfast for a few days, topped with butter or even natural yogurt and honey. It was also perfect to take to work for a mid-morning snack and is great both fresh and toasted.

People who grow their own zucchinis will be well aware how easy it is to run out of new ways to cook them over summer, so this bread is an excellent option! My mum’s zucchini plants were prolific this year, so this was a very popular way for me to use them!

The addition of the pecans add some excellent crunch (always my favourite!) and the sultanas are deliciously sweet. If you wanted to make this vegan friendly then swap out the eggs for applesauce and you’ll have a winner on your hands. Delicious! It makes an excellent alternative to banana bread as well!
