Brooke’s Zucchini Bread

This quick-bread recipe appears at most Recker family gatherings, and it does not last long. Its delicious sweetness and dense texture make it irresistible. For decades, Brooke Recker has kept the recipe as a top-secret sort of thing. Unless she likes you and you ask very nicely for it. Now that the cat’s out of the bag, she suggests you follow the recipe, slather it with room-temperature butter from a local farm, and enjoy every bite.
