Great zucchini bread, even though I was too lazy to toast the walnuts. I used a little less sugar, part whole wheat flour and lemon zest because I didn't have an orange. It's one of the best zucchini breads I've ever had.
Ultimate is an understatement here. I was a little sceptical, because of zucchini in a bread, but I'm not only convinced, I love this bread. I only grated half of the zucchini, the other half I have diced, because I like to have these little pieces. I used walnuts. The bread was put together very fast. I have had to extend the baking time a little, but I only used one loaf pan, so this might be due to this. I've checked the doneness with a toothprick and it works. The bread has a fluffy texture and the coarse chopped walnuts and the diced zucchini add additional different textures. The spices were well blended and were the best basis for the sweet taste of the bread with some salty, nutty and fresh zucchini notes. It was so comforting to have a slice of this bread with a glas of milk. Not only kids will be pleased by this bread, serve it with a cup of tea or coffee in the afternoon or as a dessert with some fruit and cream or for breakfast with your favorite jam. It doesn't matter how you will serve it or when, the result will always be the same: ultimate good.
Not what I was expecting- but so delicious! Finally, a recipe for this that is not greasy- or gooey. It has a perfect velvety texture and the orange is so subtle. I made mini loaves to give away and did cook them at 50 min as my zucchini is wet. I would add more spice next time. I am throwing out the handed down family recipe and keeping this one!
Just a side note: After greasing the pan, I coat the bottom and sides with sugar. The result is a crunchy sweet coating on the bread after baking. I'm not a fan of raw zucchini, but zucchini bread is GREAT. You have a winner on your hands! :)
oh my word this is the best texture bread ever.
Ultimate is right!!! Ten Stars! This was the BEST zucchini bread ever. i loved your strawberry and cream bread and didn't think it was possible to top it. So good. Do not change a thing.
This was the worst zucchini bread recipe I have tasted! there is something missing. AWill go back to my old one!
This is a fine recipe, except for a couple of modifications that were required. There is not any vanilla extract in the recipe, so I added 1 teaspoon and the batter was too thick to pour. I increased the oil to 3/4 cup. Increased zucchini to 3 cups for extra moistness. Didn't have any oranges. Used lemon zest instead. Really enjoyed the subtle hint of spices. Not over powering as some spice bread recipes award.
