Bringing this award-winning zucchini bread to lifestyle once again since it’s the ideal zucchini bread. And simply because it tends to make totally UNREAL and great zucchini muffins. A two-in-1 recipe that you’ll usually want in the back of your pocket.
This zucchini bread is a family recipe. Kevin grew up making this zucchini bread with his family, who entered it into the Maryland State Fair. And guess what? IT WON. You know a recipe is legit if it’s winning state awards, correct? It’s the only zucchini bread recipe I’ll make, comes with each other in less than 5 minutes, can simply be doubled or tripled, freezes superbly and isn’t opposed to brown sugar streusel on prime.
I baked and froze several loaves and batches of muffins final month so we could take pleasure in it all summer and fall. It’s embarrassingly scary how fast we can polish off a loaf, but I attempt to remind myself there’s green veggies within soooo… no shame, ok?
I’ve been wanting to update the images in the authentic recipe, but decided to re-submit it so any new readers wouldn’t miss out. I also left off the streusel so we can really target on and savor the zucchini bread’s unbelievable taste and texture. (We’ll talk about that in a sec!) Not only this, I revamped the mixing technique so it’s easier and quicker to whip up.
Why Bake with Zucchini?
I saw this question pop up a great deal right after last week’s chocolate zucchini cake. There are 2 functions to bake this vegetable into a dessert or sweet treat.
- Because you’ve acquired a ton of zukes lying close to appropriate now! There’s only so numerous zucchini side dishes you can make.
- Two phrases: flavorless moisture. That’s appropriate. Pure moisture with zero vegetable flavor lingering close to. Trust me, I would *not* bake with a green vegetable I could taste. You bake carrot cake, correct? Properly zucchini is even more moist and tender. So it breaks down within the bread/cake/muffin as it bakes. Practically disappears.
So if you have a bounty of zucchini AND it brings an abundance of moisture with practically no flavor… then why the heck not?!
Bottom line: zucchini is a crazy magical ingredient in baked products.
So, if not greens, what does it tastes like?
Zucchini bread tastes like no matter what spices you place into in. This zucchini bread, nevertheless, also tastes like vanilla and brown sugar. YOU KNOW how I really feel about brown sugar, so obviously we’re using it here! Furthermore, there’s a plethora of cinnamon and a minor dose of nutmeg. I gave a loaf to 1 of my buddies and she couldn’t quite place her finger on the additional flavor– she stated she *loved* the spice taste. It’s the nutmeg! Adds a small one thing unique.
And let’s not overlook the chocolate chips. It’s like this cinnamon swirl chocolate chip bread but with hidden vegetables within.
If chocolate isn’t your point, consider it with raisins or nuts (or the two!) as an alternative. That version is completely my language. Cinnamon raisin bread!!
Let’s talk resources. You don’t require many– just a couple of bowls and a whisk. You do, nevertheless, need a grater to shred that zucchini. (I own and adore this box grater— performs rapidly!) Soon after you shred it, you *lightly* blot it. I additional this to the notes beneath to remind you.
I hope you enjoy this loved ones recipe as significantly as we do! If you’ve created it before, allow me know in the comments beneath. I’d love to hear your ideas!
