Carrot Apple Zucchini Loaf

Apples are just starting to ripen on some trees and there's still plenty of fresh summer squash and carrots to be found. This bread is the perfect combination of late summer and fall. It's flavorful, moist, and slightly sweet. My family enjoyed eating it with a slather of butter on top, but it tastes just as good plain. I hope you enjoy!
