Carrot πŸ₯• Zucchini Bread 🍞

April 25th is National Zucchini Bread 🍞 Day

The zucchini (/zuːˈkiːni/; plural: zucchini or zucchinis), courgette (/kΚŠΙ™rΛˆΚ’Ι›t/; plural: courgettes) or baby marrow (Cucurbita pepo) is a summer squash, a herbaceous vine whose fruit are harvested when their immature seeds and epicarp (rind) are still soft and edible. It is closely related, but not identical, to the marrow; its fruit may be called marrow when mature.

In cookery, it is a vegetable, usually cooked and eaten as a savory dish or accompaniment.

Zucchini descends from squashes first domesticated in Mesoamerica over 7,000 years ago, but the zucchini itself was bred in Milan in the late 19th century.

Zucchini is usually served cooked. It can be prepared using a variety of cooking techniques, including steamed, boiled, grilled, stuffed and baked, barbecued, fried, or incorporated in other recipes such as soufflΓ©s. Zucchini can also be baked into a zucchini bread, similar to banana bread, or incorporated into a cake mix to make zucchini cake, similar to carrot cake.
