Iced Cinnamon Zucchini Bread

I sooo wish I still had some of this fabulous sweet bread laying around my kitchen still. It literally was gone in about 60 seconds with all of the boys in my house. Soft sweet bread with a heavy serving of icing….perfection.

Grab that zucchini in the refrigerator or garden and get baking, you’ll be glad you did!

Iced Cinnamon Zucchini Bread

Fill your mini loaf pan about 3/4 full. My mini loaf pan is from NordicWare, but any brand will do. Check your local kitchen store, even Target and Walmart I bet sell them ๐Ÿ™‚

Iced Cinnamon Zucchini Bread

Totally optional but absolutely delicious is to sprinkle the tops of the batter with some sanding sugar. If you don’t have sanding sugar, granulated works just fine too ๐Ÿ™‚

Once these babies cool a bit, drizzle them with as much icing as your heart desires. I may or may not have added more to my loaf, ha!

    Those are adorable! I made zucchini bread this weekend but now I need to make another batch so I can add the white chocolate chips and icing! The most delicious way to use up the overabundance of zucchini, for sure!

    Funny how i grated zucchini for the freezer today and now came across your recipe.

    That zucchini bread sounds to be very good, but I it would be great if there are a picture of cuted one to see the inside consistence because I tried some different recipes for muffins and bread with zucchini and the result was not very good. They were like wet inside ๐Ÿ™ May be I’m doing something wrong.

    This looks delish! My kids don’t like white chocolate, do you think it would turn out just as good with either regular chocolate chips or the cinnamon chips?

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net
    the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that
    they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail
    upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    The standard definition full frame lens must be avoided and, when possible,
    exactly the camera body ought to be purchased. Jason and I were
    confined inside a clear Plexiglas booth, approximately eight feet by four feet, while
    we waited for that head of security to inspect my bomb – I mean,
    backpack. It’s supposedly removed from a wireless security camera watching over the company parking lot plus it does look a bit funky.

    Someday it will happen – you’re trying to produce changes for a Wi-Fi router and know that you forgot the password or security key.
    This security feature could be installed
    at a very considerable price which could go a long way doing well to the
