Nutty Zucchini Bread

 Hey ya'll!!!!  Everyone doing ok in the midst of our world crisis?  You are all constantly in my prayers for your health and safety.  Speaking of health.....

Someone gave me zucchini.  It is a fear of mine EVERY. SINGLE. SUMMER.  It is 3rd on my list of "omgosh what if they share" only to squash and eggplant.  I have tried, I HAD to as a kid, as an adult,my answer is "just say no".  Don't try to hide it, puree it (looking for the puking emoji) or attempt to pass it off in any other creative fashion.  So my husband comes home with said zucchini and if you know how much I refuse to waste food, I pondered.  I pondered and I thought.  I pondered and I thought and I puked in my mouth.  I pondered, I thought, I puked in my mouth and I got myself together.  There has to be a way to use this. I left it on the counter for DAYS.  Now I do have a slight fair for the dramatic.  I got that from my husband and mom.  2 days ago my husband asked me if I had decided what to do with it and I said I had not, but whatever I DID make, he was eating it too!

We decided on bread.  We decided on bread that I had gotten a recipe for from my sister who I swear can make anything into a "bread".  We tried it.  It wasn't horrible but I needed more, I wanted to really not notice the zucchini.  I made it again....we like it, we ate it, we even put one in the freezer for later because we wanted to SAVE IT!  Whaaaaaaaat?  I KNOW!

I also filmed a video which will be linked somewhere here!  If you have not subscribed to my channel on YouTube, please do!  I don't just cook there, I do a little of this, a little of that, etc.  Let's get to baking!

You Will Need:

2.5 cups grated zucchini

3 eggs

2 tsp vanilla

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

3/4 tsp cinnamon

3 cups all purpose flour

1 cup walnut pieces or any other nut of your choice (lol)

Preheat your oven to 325 F,  This will make 2 loaves of bread.  Spray both loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray, or line with parchment paper.  Set them aside.

Mix all ingredients except nuts and flour.  When it is mixed completely add in the flour and nuts.  Mix until just combined!

Divide into 2 loaes and bake for 60-75 minutes!  Let cool completely, and enjoy!  Zucchini bread that doesn't taste like zucchini!





  1. Hi Chris, how much flour do I not add with the other ingredients? I'm asking for a friend...LOL
