Zucchini Bread Recipe

This basic Zucchini Bread Recipe is one that I have been using for many, many years. It’s packed with flavors from the zucchini, walnuts and cinnamon. Perfect to enjoy along with a cup of coffee in the morning, as an afternoon snack, dessert, and makes a great gift from the kitchen.

This recipe comes from my Aunt, my Dad’s sister, and her neighbor lady, who was a wonderful baker. They are no longer with us, but I have very fond memories of visiting her and enjoying this delicious Zucchini Bread recipe.

For as long as I can remember my Dad had a huge garden, and every year he would plant 12 Zucchini plants. Well, if you have ever grown Zucchini, you know that they produce lots and lots from just a single plant. He would share the produce with neighbors, friends and family, since there was always way more than my Mom could use.

We planted just 2 plants in our own garden this year, and have had plenty to enjoy. I also like to freeze the zucchini to use during the Winter months.

To learn how I freeze zucchini, and other fruits and vegetables, head on over to Pocket Change Gourmet. If you are using frozen zucchini in this recipe, or any other recipe, simply defrost it in the fridge overnight or if you forget to pull it out, like I did, just defrost it in the microwave a few minutes, then add the zucchini to your recipe, including the liquid.

You will get 6 mini loaves from this recipe. I use foil bread pans to make the mini loaves. I like the size because it also freezes well and is the perfect size to share with friends.

  7. We have an abundance of Zucchinis here in Florida… definetly a great way to get use out of farm fresh veggies! I love those kinds of recipes!

  8. I love Zucchini Bread. I had a slice for breakfast. I use pecans in mine and I haven’t tried it with brown sugar…..have to try that next time.

  9. That’s the same recipe I use and it is wonderful. The only change I make is to use 1 cup of applesauce instead of the cup of oil. The result is the same, but healthier. πŸ™‚ I get lots of tomatoes so I make all kinds of things, but my new favorite is the. Cheesy tomato bread that Dana posted on Dana made it.

  10. Well, I guess now I am just gonna have to make some zucchini bread! Of course I will need to do that early tomorrow morning or late tonight because the oven is not going on when it is in the low 100’s πŸ™‚
