A moist, flavorful, quick zucchini bread! This is a richly flavored, moist, and simple to make quick bread that uses a fun healthy ingredient–zucchini. The perfect way to use up all the zucchini you grow in your garden or are given!
The weather is getting colder, and chances are if you grew a garden, you are starting to harvest the end of it. And that means there are likely a few of those giant zucchini. You know, the ones that kind of hide from you. Then they are too big to enjoy saute style! Yup, those!
Well don’t worry, I have a great option for what you can do with them. You can make quick bread. I know you guys love quick bread. This super simple banana bread, and cream cheese banana bread are two of the most popular recipes on my site.
Honestly, I am not the best baker. I am learning, and getting better. But you will notice how flat the top of this loaf is, it should be nice and domed. The problem. I pulled it out of the oven too soon. Ugh! Learning, but slowly. I did remake this a few times, and it worked every time. But it tasted so good I never got a better photo. So the first attempt photo will have to do.
So it may not be the prettiest, but oh the flavors!
I found the recipe on A Family Feast, and adapted it a little to fit my preferences.
You guys, I used pecan pieces, little tiny ones, and of course zucchini. Then a little whole wheat flour, and brown sugar to add some depth of flavor. The combination is richly delicious. Seriously amazing. And since you basically just mix it up (dry, then wet, then both) and pop it in the oven, it is easy enough even my kids could do it, especially with the help of a Kitchen Aid mixer! Which makes me realize, I should probably ask them to make it from now on.
Yep, I am going to do that.
