Secret Recipe Club: Pineapple Zucchini Bread

Delicious and moist Pineapple Zucchini Bread with cinnamon and chopped pecans.

Pineapple Zucchini Bread -

Hi, my name is Leslie and I am a zucchini-holic. I don't know when this addiction started, but if loving zucchini is wrong I don't want to be right! So when I saw a recipe for Pineapple Zucchini Bread on my assigned blog for The Secret Recipe Club, I really couldn't help myself.

My SRC assignment this month was Cheese with Noodles, written by Anna who lives in Alaska with her hubby, bunnies, cats, hamster, and two gorgeous dogs. Anna's been blogging since 2011 and has quite a collection of easy-to-follow recipes to choose from. While her Pineapple Zucchini Bread was at the top of my list, there were a few more recipes that caught my eye like her Rosemary Wheat Bread, Black Forest Cheesecake, Chicken Makhani, and Slow Cooker Cincinnati Chili.

This Pineapple Zucchini Bread turned out to be everything I imagined it would be. It was sweet, moist, and full of delicious cinnamon flavor. Next time I make this bread, and believe you me there will be a next time, I'm going to follow Anna's suggestion of adding shredded coconut and dried cherries. Anna, thank you so much for enabling my zucchini addiction with this amazing Pineapple Zucchini Bread.
