This is a zucchini bread made only with whole wheat flour, I'm sure you could make it 1/2 with whole wheat flour and 1/2 with all purpose. It is really easy and delicious! It turns out quite sweet with 1 1/2 cups of sugar so if you're trying to cut back on sugar I think only 1 cup would be enough --> this recipe makes 2 loaves
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 1 cup vegetable oil (I use half canola and half olive oil)
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 2 zucchini, unpeeled and grated
- 3 teaspoons vanilla
- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 cup of chopped nuts
- Mix sugar, oil, eggs, grated zucchini and vanilla in a large bowl.
- In a separate bowl sift whole wheat flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and baking powder.
- Add dry ingredients to wet, stirring to combine well.
- Add chopped nuts.
- Bake at 350°F for 45/50 minutes.
Fantastic recipe! I was looking for something whole wheat and this is what I tried first. I don't think I'll be trying any more because this is it! It isn't gooy like many zucchini breads are. This is less of a desert and more of a bread. Love it! -- update, this is great as a loaf of bread or as muffins. Be sure to use about 2 cups of zucchini with excessive water drained.
I normally don't review recipes, but this one was too good not to! I'm a big fan of using whole wheat flour. This bread not only tastes delicious, it is moist and raises well! When zucchini is in season (hence coming out of our ears!), I like to grate it and freeze it in 2 cup portions ready for this recipe! The best (and healthiest!) zucchini bread recipe I've found by far! THANK YOU!
I have to say, after all the years I have eaten my mother's Zucchini bread, this is the best. It is so flavorful, with all that cinnamon and sugar and yet it still has the benefits from whole wheat flour. Just like the other review said, the bread is not "gooey" at all. It is so wonderfully delicious. It rose just fine, even though I baked it in a square glass pan instead of a bread pan, it was great! Kudos to whoever came up with this recipe, and thank you. Oh yeah, I used Walnuts from my tree out side, so that could make a difference, but I don't think so. Again, THANK YOU!
