Zucchini Bread Recipe

This recipe for Zucchini Bread is a new one for me! I’ve never made Zucchini Bread before, but I have made other spice cakes like Cinnamon bread, and Banana bread.  This Zucchini bread turned out very moist and flavorful, and kind of reminded me of a carrot loaf.  The water from the zucchini made the bread very moist and mouth-wateringly delicious!  The spices were just perfect, and the addition of walnuts added a nice crunch.  This recipe is relatively easy to make, the only minor nuisance was grating the Zucchini by hand- but if you have a food processor then this could be avoided!

Zucchini Bread

This recipe for Zucchini Bread combines all the flavors of a traditional spice cake, with zucchini. Walnuts add a crunch this deliciously moist cake!

Ingredients

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup grated Zucchini (approximately 2 large zucchinis)
2 eggs
1/2 cup Canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a small loaf pan with butter or Crisco.
  2. Grate Zucchini over a bowl using a grater, the smallest pieces. If you have a food processor you can also use this.
  3. After grated, use a small fork to mash Zucchini to squeeze some juice out of it. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda.
  5. In another bowl, combine the grated zucchini, eggs, canola oil, and vanilla extract.
  6. Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients in the large bowl.
  7. Stir in walnuts.
  8. Using a spatula, spoon the batter into the loaf pan. Cook in oven for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until a toothpick in the center of the loaf comes out clean.

Notes

This Zucchini bread recipe produces a golden brown loaf cake that can be enjoyed with coffee, tea, or a glass of milk. If you want to dress up this dish a little more, you can also make a brown sugar glaze frosting and add this to the top, and serve with french vanilla ice cream on the side.

*If you are a chocolate lover, you can also add chocolate chips or grated chocolate to the mixture. I plan on trying this next time!
