Here I am again, trying to sneak zucchini into our meals. Not really, this time, Lenny likes my zucchini bread, and it is the one time he does not turn up his nose at what he considers a boring vegetable. Which by the way, why do so many men think zucchini is a terrible veg? I jazzed up my usual zucchini bread by making this recipe for Zucchini Coffee Bread to jump start our morning, and now your morning too.
This recipe is lovely and so easy to eat; I could barely stop at one slice, hot from the oven. I love how the outside crust is slightly crisp, and the middle is so moist. The coffee flavor is not overpowering at all; it has subtle toasted coffee notes. It is no secret that we enjoy a nice cup of Nespresso coffee, and I have been thinking about using their coffee in recipes for a few months now. My jazzy addition to this recipe is the Nespresso Intenso Coffee, which is one of our favorite coffees to begin the morning with. I tried a few different coffees from Nespresso for this recipe, the New Solelio, and the New Giornio blends, which are lovely on their own but got lost in this recipe. The Intenso subtly flavors the zucchini bread with the kiss of an early morning jump start!
