Zucchini Bread with Crumb …

Zucchini time is here. As I was sifting through my recipe collection on the blog, I realized I have not yet shared a great zucchini bread recipe. This is a recipe in my grandmas cookbook. She makes a couple different versions- one with pineapple and this one. I LOVE Zucchini Bread. It is so moist and delicious and such a fun tradition to look forward to every summer.

I love this recipe because it has a crumb topping and buttercream frosting. The added crunchy crumble provides a great texture to the moist bread . And who doesn’t love frosting?!

I am telling you, this bread is perfection. If you are looking for a delicious zucchini bread recipe, give our family recipe a try!
