Zucchini Spice Loaf

Cucina Aurora Zucchini Loaf

Zucchini Spice Loaf

This sweet and moist bread is the perfect Lammas or Mabon food! Mabon is the second harvest holiday and so we come together around breads to symbolize the wheat harvest, and zucchini is at its height in these late summer/early fall weeks.

You can pick up giant ones at the farmer’s market for just a dollar or two. Remember that the zucchini holds male energy due to its shape and tap into that by meditating on a hard job you might have coming to a close. Let the assertiveness of the zucchini help you in the tasks ahead.
