14 Zucchini Bread Recipes To Make All Summer Long

James Ransom/Food52

The other day, we here at HuffPost Taste were talking about how ridiculous it is that April 25 is National Zucchini Bread Day. I mean, who needs a national holiday for zucchini bread? The conversation was followed by a brief lull, and then:

  • Alison: Actually, I know someone who makes a really great version with pineapple.
  • Kristen: Oh, my neighbor makes one with coconut and pistachios that's insanely delicious.
  • Alison: Zucchini bread is one of those things I could just eat all day, if it's around.
  • Kristen: Oh man, have you ever made it into a sandwich with cream cheese in between?

And then we realized: Okay, this is a pretty great holiday. So we're going to share some of our favorite zucchini bread recipes with you. Happy baking, on April 25 and all year long!

Note: Our third editor, Julie, was absent for the conversation but wants you to know she's also all about zucchini bread.
