Well, I think I found a bread that my husband is willing to defend and protect. When I told him what I was making, I got a slight side-eye and a very questionable look. This is what happens when I try to put vegetables in almost everything. Especially zucchini, which, by the way I once couldn’t stand. And now, I think it is perfection. And on top of that, I decide to add a fruit too. Clearly, I’ve lost a few marbles. My husband’s curiosity peaked as the aroma took over the kitchen. It’s so cute when the husband and the children are asking when the bread is going to be ready. Yes folks, this was the excitement that took place because of this wonderful Zucchini Pineapple Quick Bread.

As usual, waiting for a sweet-smelling bread like this one to cool is always a challenge. Even the baker it is eager to taste the finished product. I loved how easy this bread was to make. Although the baking time of an hour seemed a bit long, it was well worth the wait. The moisture of this bread is unbelievable!
This is such a wonderful and moist bread. I’m excited just posting about it. I was considering making it again with Spelt flour or some other flour with higher nutrient value. I was asked NOT to change anything about the recipe/ingredients. Well, I guess there is nothing more to say. This quick bread is hubby approved! I will still probably go ahead and try it with spelt just because I really want to.
This is my contribution to the May 2013 #TwelveLoaves challenge. Lora of Cake Duchess created this awesome group where the participants bake according to the theme for the month.
