Golden Zucchini Bread (Yellow Squash Bread)
"This is one of my favorite tea cake recipes. This come from my mom's aunt's collection, which I inherited when she passed away. The recipe calls for yellow squash (golden zucchini). This is very easy and so moist and delicious! I have tested this recipe using boxes of the old and newer cake mix sizes, and it works out fine either way (although it puffs up less using the newer size mixes)*."

I used zucchini instead of the squash and this was so moist and delicious. I stored it in the refrigerator and that helped keep the moisture in. We loved the nuts and flavor of this bread! I spread cream cheese over mine and it was MMmmm good!.
- 1 box (18.25 ounce) yellow cake mix (or butter cake mix 18.25 ounces, 2 layer size)
- 1 box (4 serving size) instant vanilla pudding mix
- 4 eggs, large
- 1/4 cup oil (canola oil)
- 3 cups squash (yellow crookneck squash, grated)
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (or apple spice spice blend)

What You Will Need
