Can you stand one more?  I promise, no more posts on zucchini for awhile after this one, but I would feel like I was depriving you if I did not share this.  I saw this recipe, made it and could not stop myself from raving to you about it.  This Cream Cheese Zucchini Bread not only has unbelievable texture and flavor, but the appearance of it will leave people wondering, “Are you a wizard?  How did you do that?”  I believe we all enjoy receiving compliments, so if you are having a blue day, bring this to a friend or to work, and at the end of the day, you will have to remember to deflate your head before going home because it will have become so big.

The crust of this bread is slightly crispy and the inside is surprisingly dense and oh so moist.  Then you get to the cream cheese swirl and your little sweet tooth heart just melts with delight.  This is not your grandmother’s zucchini bread.

    I totally love zucchini…I make breads, muffins, cookies…anything! Planning to make one of my fave zucchini pineapple breads this weekend (but I ran out of eggs). Can’t wait to try this recipe!

    I don’t get tired of zucchini, especially zucchini in a bread. You’re right, this isn’t my grandmother’s zucchini bread (it’s deliciously better!). It’s gotta be good with that cream cheese.

    Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend. 🙂

    Well, now I’m hungry. I wish you didn’t live so far away, I’d really love a piece of that cream cheese zucchini bread. 🙂

      I wish you could stop by for a piece also! Glad Carter’s first day went well for both of you!

    Mercedes! YUM! I love anything with cream cheese frosting, but this just looks and sounds SO good!

    I hope you have some good canning things to share with us soon! 🙂

      This bread really was a hit and was so moist and rich. And you can bet that with Lulu at my house last week, you’ll be receiving some canned goods next time I see you!
