2. Beat butter with sugar until light and creamy.
3. Beat in eggs, one at a time.
4. Fold in half the flour, the half the milk.
5. Repeat with remaining milk and flour (be careful not to over mix).

    I love this photo C!

    Kids just love these - I made some to take on a picnic the other day with nieces and nephews (a toss-up between these and Bell’s Zucchini Bread.) They were demolished :)
