National Zucchini Bread DayNational Zucchini Bread Day

National Zucchini Bread Day takes place on April 25th in celebration of the sweet treat and to encourage people to try their hand at making it. 

The zucchini itself has a long history, stretching back as far as 7,000 B.C. to its origins in South America, especially Mexico where it remains a popular ingredient for a wide range of local dishes. 

The gourd-like vegetable was introduced to Europeans when it was brought back by explorers. The Italians named it zucchini based on the Italian word for squash: zucca. From there, Italian immigrants in the 1920s reintroduced zucchini to North America where it was coveted for its ability to be eaten raw. 

Although it is called zucchini bread, the sweet loaf does not require yeast and is more like a cake than a bread, similar to banana bread. There are a number of different recipes for zucchini bread so finding one that matches your taste and experience level should be a breeze.

Try your hand at making your own zucchini bread for National Zucchini Bread this April 25th or stop by your local bakery to pick up a loaf to enjoy for breakfast, as a snack, or even as dessert.
