Zucchini Bread

Go to the zucchini bread comments page

This bread is delicious with garden fresh zucchini. Frozen zucchini works well with the recipe, too. This is one of the most popular recipes, especially in the summer.





Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature.

Whisk flours, salt, baking soda, baking powder in a bowl.
In large bowl, beat eggs and sugar.
Mix in oil, applesauce, pineapple juice, vanilla.
Mix in dry ingredients. Use a large spoon to combine.
Mix in zucchini and walnuts.
Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes on the middle rack.

Doug's Notes

You can halve the recipe for one 8x4 loaf.
I have used half sugar, half sweetener (usually Splenda) with great success.
I usually use 2/3 oil, 1/3 unsweetened applesauce.
I've used vegetable oil, olive oil (the baking kind, not extra-virgin), safflower oil.
Mixing with a big spoon minimizes gluten formation.
