I Made Cucumber Bread! Online Amber’s Adapted Recipe
My hubby's parents have a really successful garden and I'm always using the zucchini to make bread. This last time I asked, they were all out of zucchini but offered me lots and lots of cucumbers. Hmmm, I thought.
Can I replace zucchini with cucumbers in my bread recipe? The answer is YES, and it's actually very enticing. Want the recipe?

Makes 1 Loaf
The loaf comes out with a golden brown crust over a light green center. It gives your mouth a cool, fresh sensation and goes great with tea. You could even top it with buttercream frosting and toasted nuts for texture and make it a gift cake. Enjoy!
I would show you a picture of a slice... but I already ate it. :)
