I have become an even earlier riser since moving to the South. The mornings here are peaceful. Often, the sun has just risen when I get to work writing, designing or fussing about in the kitchen. Mist still hovering over the pines. The air cool. Quiet.
Lately I’ve been baking in the early morning, popping a tin of muffins or a loaf of quick bread in the oven before I settle in with my cup of chai at the computer. Trying to savor the last of summer’s produce: blueberries, peaches, zucchini. Filling the house with aromatic spices.
Moist and flavorful, with a hint of spice, this zucchini apple quick bread is a new morning favorite. The sweetness of the apple pairs well with the freshness of the zucchini in this easy-to-make recipe, best served warm with your morning coffee.
