Sourdough Zucchini Nut Bread

On the Menu Today~
Sourdough Zucchini Nut Bread
A Week of Sourdough in Recipes~

For Christmas this year,
my daughter-in-law Kim,
gave me this handy dandy pan....
the Wilton Advance 4-cavity Mini Loaf Pan.
Each cavity measures 5.75 W x 3"L x 2.125" D.
That means you can make 4 loaves of bread at once.

The small loaves are perfect for gift giving during the holidays or
you can enjoy one loaf of bread and
freeze the rest for later.

You'll always have a few loaves of bread stored in the freezer,
for when unexpected guests stop by or
you just want a slice of  quick bread,
which ever comes first~

Sourdough adds a wonderful tang to quick breads and
quick breads made with a sourdough starter
always turn out nice and moist~
