Zucchini Bread

My absolute favorite quick bread is zucchini bread. It always has been, and I’m pretty sure it always will be. Even when I was little and didn’t care for most vegetables, I loved this bread. One of my aunts, who is no longer with us, used to make this all the time at holiday gatherings, and I always thought hers was the best. She made all kinds of treats, including no-egg chocolate cake, and everything I can remember eating was delicious. So, when I started making my own zucchini bread, of course I asked my mom for the recipe. Although I’ve added a couple spices and a sprinkling of brown sugar, the rest of the recipe remains intact, and it’s just as wonderful as I remember.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.

In a small bowl, beat the eggs and oil.

Shred the zucchini…

…then, pour it into the flour mixture and give it a good stir.

Stir in the egg mixture.

Spoon into a greased loaf pan, and then sprinkle with brown sugar.

Bake for about an hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  7. This is very close to my mother-in-law’s version of zucchini bread, which is a family favorite. I grate and freeze plenty of zucchini in the summer so I have enough for plenty of loaves of this moist bread in the winter.

  9. I bet you could switch out the zucchini with banana, and make a banana bread with the same recipe! That’s what I do with my zucchini bread recipe sometimes anyways.
