Almost each time my grandma flew to California to go to us, she packed alongside two massive loaves of selfmade zucchini bread in her carry-on suitcase. Since we nearly at all times completed off your complete first loaf earlier than she boarded her return flight, she baked the second so we’d nonetheless have one thing left to get pleasure from after her go to!
One time, the day after Grandma flew residence, Mother minimize slices for our snack. She positioned mine on a pink plastic plate and handed it to me, so I instantly took an enormous chew. As I chewed, I watched as she returned the foil-wrapped loaf to the fridge and grabbed…
A bath of cream cheese. She dipped a knife in and slathered it throughout her personal zucchini bread slice. I should have made a face as a result of she laughed and replied, “It tastes good—I promise! Do you need to strive a chew?”
I rapidly shook my head. That mixture sounded unusual to a choosy eater like me… Cream cheese was for bagels, not my candy slice of zucchini bread!
But as an grownup, I’ve modified my thoughts… Mother was completely good! That pairing of creamy, ever-so-slightly tangy cream cheese with the moist, cozily spiced zucchini bread really tastes unimaginable!
And I consider Mother each time I bake these Wholesome Zucchini Cookie Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting.
