Bacon Cheddar Zucchini Bread
You’ll love this Bacon and Cheddar Zucchini Bread. It’s easy to make and you can even bake it in your Muffin Tin as a mini muffin version. It takes just 10 minutes to prepare then you can relax while it’s baking. You won’t be able to wait to try it warm from the oven.

*** You can make this in a 9 x 13 in pan, double the recipe and check if cooked through after around 35 – 40 minutes.
You can also use this recipe (same quantity ingredients as the regular loaf) to make 12 muffins, bake at the same temperature for between 30 – 35 minutes. The photo below was taken by Alison North who baked her muffins to take to a work party!
