As the summer comes to an end and the fall is right around the corner, one of our favorite desserts is nice warm zucchini bread. I love making this fresh at home because trying to feed a toddler veggies can be a challenge. Slicing and serving a yummy piece of this zucchini bread recipe, it’s gone in just a few minutes. I found this recipe but of course altered it with what I know and what I had on hand. It still came out with a perfect crust on the outside and moist cake in the inside.
- 2 cups grated zucchini
- 2 1/2 cups sugar
- 3 cups flour
- 3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup corn oil
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Take the zucchini and grate into a small bowl. Set aside. In a medium bowl, mix eggs, oil and vanilla. In another medium bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients. The original recipe said to sift them but I didn’t and it still came out good. Slowly add the dry mixture into the egg mixture.
Add the grated zucchini and mix well. Grease a large loaf pan or two medium loaf pans. I had enough to make two. Pour in the batter and bake for an hour. Insert a toothpick to check the middle. If it comes out clean, it’s ready!
Allow to cool in the pan for about five minutes before cutting and serving.We had this as a snack the entire day and then for dinner I prepared a simple pasta dish to compliment the bread. We love warming it up with a dab of cream cheese. This is the perfect way to sneak in veggies to your children while also making it taste amazing. It also makes a great gift! I wrapped the second loaf and gave it to my in-laws who were feeling under the weather. I’ll be making more this holiday season for sure.
