Caramel Frosted Zucchini Bread

Before we get on to the delicious zucchini bread below, it’s time for another quick round of Diggin’ It Tuesday.

No lie, fall weather. It’s 66 degrees F outside right now. I’m in heaven.

My Tameron 18-270mm lens, because it lets me get all up close and personal from far away. Not a professional level lens. There’s a lot more noise in the pictures than I would like, but it was really dark and for the price you can’t beat it. I know I have included a link to Amazon, but please, always buy your photography equipment from local stores. Help the mom and pop shops out and you will also be building a priceless relationship with them as your equipment collection expands.

My Lowepro Slingshot camera bag. Nope, it’s not fancy, and nope, it’s not pink, but damn it did a fantastic job while huffing it around Baltimore last weekend. I have to say, being able to sling it across my back and not carry it like a bulky purse was kind of awesome. There’s even a hidden cover for when it starts to down poor that acts as a little rain jacket for your camera bag, which came in very handy when we encountered some not so nice weather.

Fishes, dolphins, PUFFINS and great date days with the man. Really, can’t top that.

Oh, and Wackenfuss peanut butter meltaways. They are kind of awesome.

Never having made zucchini bread before, I actually tested out two recipes before posting this. One was from Cook’s Illustrated and this one. I asked a friend who claimed a love of zucchini bread which one he liked better and why. He chose this one. It was denser and sweeter then the Cook’s version and I’m sure the icing probably helped.


  This little dude was like the size of a quarter. See, not a bad lens at all. 


  1. I’m loving this! Yum!

  2. I’m pretty sure I would almost anything covered in that frosting

  3. Gorgeous loaf my friend! I’m shopping for a new lens… thinking macro, but so not sure!! Maybe I’ll mull it over while I eat this loaf… sounds like a great idea to me! :)

  4. I’m dying over the caramel frosting!!!

    I am on the hunt for a macro lens that doesn’t cost a gazillion dollars, lol

  5. I’m gonna have to unsubscribe from you until I lose these few pounds that are bothering me. I can’t handle this.

  6. I’m with Amanda on this one – I’m trying to shed my “food blogging fat” but that won’t happen with awesome recipes like this. Although it does have zucchini in it….

  7. Zucchini makes it healthy right?! Gorgeous and amazing!
