I've had the privilege of working with the Friendship Bread Kitchen. I found them first on Facebook and they now have a wonderful new site with plenty of recipes and all you would ever need to know about Amish Friendship Bread.
They offered me the opportunity to make Zucchini Chocolate Chip Friendship Bread. I turned them into cupcakes and used chocolate chocolate chunks.
I also made a powdered sugar icing for them that the kids of course, loved. These were a total hit and the kids had no idea they were eating zucchini!
