This is not bread 'bread'. It is not one that is kneaded.
It is more cake form but even then its not a cake, its a savoury loaf.
We have had it a few times, over the weekend and then twice in the evening, early on in the working week as a light snack in the evening. It is perfect as a portable savoury snack too.
This Zucchini and Cheese Bread reminded me of Johanna's Australian Zucchini slice and Clotilde Dusoulier of Chocolate and Zucchini fame Cake Tomate, Pistache et Chorizo translated as Sun dried Tomato, Pistachio and Savoury Loaf .
I am sharing it with Recipe of the Week hosted by A Mummy Too.
