Carrot Zucchini Apple Bread

One more dessert bread to share!

This recipe also came from the friend who brought over 3 kinds of zucchini bread after Brent's surgery.  (Double Chocolate can be found here, and the Apple here.)

I asked Brent which one he liked the best, and his answer was the carrot one. Of course mine was the double chocolate!

All three were delicious, so moist and flavorful!
