Zucchini Bread

zucchini bread

Derrick’s parents gave us a few zucchinis the other weekend and I secretly “forgot” to use them in a stir fry and saved them for quick bread.  Shhhh…. don’t tell. 

Zucchini bread is very similar to carrot cake.  The vegetable flavor itself is very mild and the spices really shine.  It’s like when you take a bite of carrot cake, you see carrot bits floating in the cake but in the end it’s all about the moist cake, beautiful spices and the decadent cream cheese frosting.  No one says – “wow I love this cake; it taste like a carrot stick!”  It’s the same thing with zucchini bread. So if you’re hesitant about putting green vegetables into bread, don’t be because it’s delicious!     The zucchini lends to a very moist and light bread.  The spices are warm, inviting and comforting.  It’s a great bread to enjoy all year long and incredibly easy to make.  It’s also a great way to get your vegetables in for the day… even if it’s in a very sweet, but satisfying way.

    I’ve got your zucchini bread recipe in the oven right now and it smells AMAZING! However, my oven is a little finicky and I’ve learned that it’s much happier making muffins (as opposed to full size bread loaves), so that is what I’m making. I wanted to ask you – have you ever turned this recipe into muffins? And if so, how long did you bake them for? THANKS!

    Hi Jaimie! I love the smell of it baking in the oven too! I haven’t tried making it into muffins – but they would definitely be delicious as muffins. I would try baking them at 20 minutes first and then test with a toothpick to see if they’re ready – adjust the baking time as need. Can’t wait to see how they turn out! Thanks for trying the recipe!

    I have been making Zucchini bread for thirty eight years using the same four recipes and wanted to make something different and a little more spicier, so looking on the net I came across your recipe and made the bread. I have to say that it is the best recipe I have found and I will continue to make this one for many years to come. I did add sliced almonds to one loaf and white chocolate chips to the second loaf and they were both a delight. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us.
