Zucchini Bread

I was going to make some Zucchini Bread tonight, but I didn't have enough sugar. So tomorrow you will get to see some Zucchini Bread. I told a friend of mine, whom lives in Michigan, that I was planning on making Zucchini Bread and selling it on his YIPEEE Social network sight and his reply was, " why don't you make something people will like". Well he obviously has never tried Zucchini Bread. For those fortunate enough to have tried it, you know it is delicious. If you have not tried it , you will be surprised.
The first time I ever tasted or even heard of Zucchini Bread, I was about 22 years old. My Mother had relatives that lived in upstate N.Y. near Cuba. We went for a visit and Zucchini Bread was a daily item in their house. They served it with dinner, had it toasted in the morning for breakfast. They didn't think it was anything special, they thought of it the way we think of regular white bread.
When I make it at home it does not last long, it is hard to have just one slice. It is very addicting. It is similar to carrot cake, but smoother in texture and not as sweet. Although some people put nuts or raisins in their Zucchini Bread, I do not. I like things simple.I have my cousins recipe and that is how I make it, never tried anything new.
Tomorrow we will make the Zucchini Bread, and Mr Michigan will be getting a loaf or two in his mailbox, all the way from Melboure Fl.
