Zucchini bread recipe and a Tasty Tuesday Link up!

zucchini bread recipe

What to do with tons of zucchini? Make bread!

When your zucchini begins flowing in from the garden you ocasionally miss one or two of them. I missed this monster the other day. I had no choice but to make zucchini bread out of it. Once a zucchini reaches a certain size it’s not very good to eat. But it’s really great to shred and put in bread, brownies, etc. Yum.  Check out how big that zucchini was.


Crazy that this zucchini was hiding from me. I never saw it. When I cut it to take it in the plant fell down. It was being propped up by the zucchini. LOL My kids and family have happy bellies.

Zucchini Bread

moist yummy bread with the taste of cinnamon. My son had an argument with his friend who was visiting the kid said it's cinnamon bread. My son said it's zucchini bread. He was like no it's not.

  1. Beat eggs until light and foamy. Add oil, sugar, zucchini and vanilla. Mix lightly but well. Mixing lightly add dry ingredients that you already mixed together. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans and bake at 325* for one hour. After out of the oven for 10 minutes ease off the sides of the pan with a fork and put a plate on top of the pan and invert them both so that bread slides out onto plate. Let cool. Eat. Repeat with more zucchini.

Oh it was so good. Have leftover zucchini this is a great way to use it. Freeze it to be included in bread and brownies. If you use it in brownies the zucchini replaces the oil. Zucchini is very moist and rich in water content.
