Zucchini Pineapple Bread

Friday, October 12, 2012

This recipe reminds me of my talented friend Sara (who tells me she can't cook - not true) and the fall before I moved from Washington. Sara made this bread during Joy School with the kids and I saw a blog post about it. She posted the recipe and I promptly decided to make some with a few kids during my Monday Madness event.

We found that if you grease and sugar the pan before you bake you get a nice sweet crust on the outside. I like to add a little cinnamon to my sugar before swishing around the pan. I love cinnamon, if you don't skip that step. You could also just go old school and grease and flour the pan. Up to you.
