First off I can’t begin to tell you how super easy it is to grow your own zucchini. Each summer a grow a few dozen summer squash including the zucchini sometimes on one plant. The steam of the zucchini doesn’t like to be a mess with too much so if you can leave that be by mounding the plant up to grow – you are all set. I love growing this vegetable because of it easy and the plant is beautiful along the edge of my garden. Did you see my blog post about how easy it is to grow your own Zucchini squash from seed?

Zucchini Bread RecipeCourse: BreadCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: medium
3 large eggs
1 cup of vegetable oil
3 cups raw zucchini (shredded)
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons fresh nutmeg (ground)
1 teaspoon real vanilla
1 cup walnuts (chopped)
Shred the zucchini making sure all the seeds are out. Set aside with lid so it doesn’t dry out.
Beat eggs, sugar, vanilla and oil together in mixing bowl
Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a separate bowl mixing well before adding to the egg and sugar mixture
Slowly add the flour mix to the wet mixture on low speed. Do not over mix - the ingredients should be nice and sticky with medium moisture.
Fold in zucchini by hand until well blended. The fresh zucchini should add additional moisture to the mix
Pour the mixture into a greased 4"x8" (or your favorite) bread pan
Bake at 350*F for about 50 minutes or until the bread is done in the middle. Use a tooth pick to test the middle of the bread to make sure it is done.
- This mixture can be sued in 4 small loaf pan size
- This recipe can be frozen and used at later time.
I’d love to hear from you … what do you cook up with your zucchini harvest? Be sure to connect with me on my contact page that I answer daily.
Wish I had a loaf right now, Bren! Looks perfect. Maybe I’ll plant some next year, if I feel then that I’m on top of things enough to not lose control of thevegetablethatgrowsbeforeyourveryeyes!
HA … love it Jean ‘thevegetablethatgrowsbefreyourveryeyes’ – AWESOME! WEll, you can always visit the local farmers market and grab some zucchini this time of year. If you lived closer I would gladly give you some of mine.
Your photos and tips are excellent! I love zucchini in every form, and from the garden is the best – so fun to peek under a leaf and find a huge one that you’ve missed for a week. One of my favorite recipes that I’ve tweaked over the years is for zucchini brownies; my family now prefers them to standard ones. Eating brownies with two cups of zucchini in them even feels healthy!
Yummy, well done
