A colleague from work, Lee O., gave me this family recipe for when the summer zucchini is overflowing. She says they call it "brake" because it's a cross between bread and cake - a great dense consistency with a sweet bite. I'm calling it a dessert - perhaps an icing is in order?! It's terribly easy to put together. Just plan to bake in the morning or late at night - this recipe calls for a 350 degree oven for an hour.

A colleague from work, Lee O., gave me this family recipe for when the summer zucchini is overflowing. She says they call it "brake" because it's a cross between bread and cake - a great dense consistency with a sweet bite. I'm calling it a dessert - perhaps an icing is in order?! It's terribly easy to put together. Just plan to bake in the morning or late at night - this recipe calls for a 350 degree oven for an hour.
