My mama made homemade zucchini bread almost every summer. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the recipe she had given me, so I relied on one of the many church cookbooks she has given me through the years. Although mine will never be as good as mama’s, it turned out pretty good. If you have never tried zucchini bread, you really need to try this recipe. I know it sounds gross, but trust me, you will want to make it again!
David and I frequent a farmers’ market about 30 minutes from our house. We go out of our way to visit this particular market because of the wonderful variety of products it offers. I decided among all of the vegetation that we purchased this weekend that zucchini would be our star vegetable for the week.
This homemade zucchini bread is moist, nutty with hints of cinnamon. Perfect for a snack or even as breakfast.
Here’s how you make it:
Mix eggs, sugar, oil, and zucchini in a large bowl.
Sift dry ingredients together in a separate bowl.
Gradually stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture until well blended. Add nuts and stir them into the mixture.
Pour into two greased loaf pans.
Bake 350 degrees F for 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the loaf.
I do not own two matching metal loaf pans, so I used one glass one and one metal one. They cooked at the same time and temperature and were both ready at the same time. Whenever possible, line your metal pans, with parchment paper. It makes for easy cleanup and your baked goods will pop right out of the pan with very little effort.
I highly recommend a slice while the zucchini bread is still warm with a glass of milk. I hope you will try this recipe.
If you do, let me know what you think!
