Spiced Zucchini Bread with Vanilla Chai Frosting

The best part about having a garden is the harvest you receive! We had quite a few zucchinis this year. I am not a huge fan of zucchini in its vegetable state, but when you throw it in with some flour, sugar and eggs and call it a bread or muffin I am licking my fingers clean from the stuff! This zucchini bread is made with applesauce so its super moist and I whipped up a yummy vanilla chai cream cheese frosting. It's the perfect amount of sweetness!
