    As my husband's garden in full bloom, zucchini is popping up everywhere...so it's only appropriate for me to make good use of it and bake some zucchini bread!

    You put butter into the zucchini bread recipe; yet your daughter is severely allergic to dairy products--otherwise this recipe sounds great!

    Hi Lee Anne! Just noticed your comment and thought I would mention that there is dairy free butter- "Earth Balance" is one that I use. My whole family uses it and never even notice a difference taste wise. Thanks Silka for a very yummy looking recipe, I can't wait to try it out!

    Wondering if someone can tell me how much a 'half stick of butter' is? In some measurable quantity, such a cups/oz/grams? (Butter is not sold in 'sticks' where I live).

    Thanks for sharing your recipes! I am looking forward to trying them out!

    1 stick of butter is: 8 Tablespoons, 1/4 pound, or 1/2 cup.

     

    I haven't tried this recipe yet but our daughter was diagnosed with celiac today and my head is still reeling. We'll be starting to rethink everything, including zucchini bread.
