Hey everyone! Since it’s been the harvest season for our garden zucchini, I wanted to break out my recipe for Zucchini Bread. We always make Zucchini Bread this time of year, plus it’s one of the easiest breads to make. I also wanted to make some because believe it or not, Sara had never tried some before. I know. How is that even possible. This is one of my go to recipes for when I have extra Zucchini around, plus it’s super easy; even if you’ve never made bread before you can totally handle this.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 1/2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
- 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
- 1/4 tsp. Baking Powder
- 2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. Salt
- 1/4 tsp. Ground Nutmeg
- 1 1/4 cup Sugar
- 1 Egg
- 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
- 1/2 cup chopped Walnuts
- 1 cup finely shredded unpeeled Zucchini
*tip – If you have zucchini but you’re afraid it’s going to go bad before you get to make your bread, you can totally shred it up in advance and just stick it in the freezer until you’re ready for bread making.
The first step is to preheat your oven to 350 degrees, then start on your bread. Combine you flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and nutmeg in a bowl. Then in a separate mixing bowl, add the sugar, zucchini, vegetable oil, egg together and mix them.
After your wet ingredients are together and mixed, you can combine it with your dry ingredients. Mix together until they’re combined. Stir in your chopped walnuts. Then add your batter to a greased loaf pan.
Bake your bread in the oven for 55-60 minutes, or until your toothpick comes out clean. That’s pretty much all there is to it. Once you take it out of the oven, and let it cool, you can slice it up and enjoy it with a nice cup of Joe, or as a light snack. I love that this recipe is whole wheat too, so it’s a little healthier for you than just plain flour.
