Quick Bread Recipes:How To Make Zucchini Bread

Here’s a super quick and easy way to on how to make zucchini bread; a delicious quick simple quick bread that everyone will love. Zucchini bread has always been a favorite quick bread of mine and when zucchini is in season, I always end up with a ton in the fridge.

Whether I’m chopping them up and throwing them into stews, or mixed veggies for topping rice, fried zucchini fritters or even a zucchini bread filled with wonderfully aromatic spices like nutmeg and cinnamon, chances are there is always some sort of dish involving this yummy vegetable.

 I made 6 loaves of quick breads for our freezer over the weekend and 4 loaves were with zucchini. My family loves zucchini bread so I’m lucky that many loaves made it to the freezer. We’re already on our second loaf. 🙂

  2. In a medium bowl, mix together zucchini, eggs, oil, sugar, applesauce, and vanilla; set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, and cinnamon; add zucchini mixture in. Add raisins if desired.

Noel’s Quick Recipe Note:

*Once you have grated the zucchini, using a paper towel, lightly squeeze excess moisture from zucchini. This helps prevent a soggy and uncooked bread.

I also made this recipe using 1 cup shredded carrot with 1 cup grated zucchini.

Enjoy!
