Zucchini Bread Recipe

zucchini_bread_title

A great holiday nostalgic memory for me is Zucchini bread.Growing up, we would bake Zucchini bread as a family, wrap them up in gift wrap and then give them to our neighbors to spread holiday cheer. Although Zucchini is a summery vegetable, they are readily available during the holiday season at your local grocery store.This recipe is a very simple recipe that doesn't require fancy mixers or crazy ingredients. What I like most about Zucchini bread is that it doesn't taste like Zucchini at all! This bread comes out very flavorful, moist and delicious. I hope you enjoy this Zucchini bread recipe.

  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F

  4. In a separate bowl, mix your wet ingredients (eggs, oil, vanilla and sugar) together, mix until smooth
  5. Mix your dry ingredients with your wet ingredients, then add your grated zucchini (and walnuts) until everything is well combined.

  7. Bake for approx. 40-60 minutes, test with a toothpick by inserting it in the middle of the loaf and seeing if the toothpick comes out clean.
