A successful recipe…

I have to confess… this recipe was an actual test recipe for me.  My oldest daughter requested I make zucchini bread without any chocolate … for my grandchildren, of course! 

So I took one of my favorite recipes, my triple chocolate zucchini bread recipe, and omitted the chocolate completely.  Then I adapted the recipe and added in a little more flour and some warm spices to make the bread taste better and even cozier.    

I knew the flavor would turn out bland without the chocolate, and hoped my additions would make the bread taste better.  I even added some pumpkin pie spice, and surprisingly, it worked just fine!

How To Make Zucchini Bread? (*Full recipe card below!)

This is a very easy recipe, and not complicated. First, rinse 2 zucchini, then mince the zucchini, using a mini chopper or food processor. You will need to measure 2 cups of minced zucchini for this recipe. Then whisk all the remaining ingredients in one mixing bowl, and add in the minced zucchini, along with melted butter, and flour until well blended. Transfer to your 9 x 5-inch bread loaf pan and bake.

Questions and Tips

  1. Do you need to remove the skins from the zucchini? No, you do not have to remove the skins, but I prefer to lightly scrape them off, especially if they are not organically grown.
  2. Do we need to squeeze out the liquid from the grated zucchini? No need to squeeze out any liquid from the grated zucchini. The moisture is needed and will make this bread very soft and moist inside.
  3. When is the best time to wrap the bread? The best time to wrap the bread is when the bread is cooled enough to handle. This will ensure the bread will stay moist.
  4. Can we chill zucchini bread? Yes, this zucchini bread is delicious chilled as well, but it is best served at room temperature.

How To Store and Freeze?

  • It’s best to keep the bread sealed and wrapped with a clear wrap to keep fresh and moist.  Zucchini bread will stay fresh for up to 3 days at room temperature. 
  • You may also, keep zucchini bread chilled in your refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • It freezes perfectly for up to one month. 

This recipe turned out to be a success.

Best part?  As always, the zucchini is completely hidden in this bread, making it a healthy alternative! But remember – I won’t tell – if you won’t!

Try this recipe, it won’t disappoint!  … and enjoy!
