Zucchini-Pineapple Quick Bread
Warm cinnamon and crushed pineapple turn ordinary mellow zucchini bread into a distinctive sweet snack or dessert. The recipe yields two generous loaves, which is a fine way to use the abundance of fresh zucchini harvested from your garden during the summer. Freeze the extra loaf, tightly wrapped in plastic wrap and heavy-duty aluminum foil, for up to one month. Thaw at room temperature. Slices are good microwaved at HIGH for 10 to 15 seconds.
