Zucchini bread is an American staple which is not (yet!) appreciated in Britain. "Yuck, courgettes in bread?" I hear you cry; but you like carrot cake, right? This is a ‘quick bread’ (sweet & non-yeasted) just like banana bread, which can be made from this recipe as well (see Tip). With courgettes or bananas, it's a delicious dairy-free treat.
**For banana bread:** Simply substitute the same weight of peeled bananas for the courgettes (the riper the better – you want REALLY brown skins before you peel), about 3, and mashed well. I also add more ground cinnamon and nutmeg, and a touch of ground ginger, when making this recipe with bananas.
