Yogurt-Zucchini Bread With Walnuts

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by jenne

"This moist, nutty bread is a terrific way to use up late-summer zucchini. The walnuts in the bread are super-heart-healthy, and the yogurt adds moisture without any fat." States that the zucchini loaf can be wrapped tightly in plastic and kept at room temperature for up to 4 days, or frozen in plastic and foil for up to 1 month. Recipe from Food & Wine.

This is very good. Like that it's not too sweet. I grated the zucchini in my blender, leaving bigger chunks than using a grater. Mine had more of a cake-like texture than bread. Will serve to company at breakfast time.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°.
  2. Butter and flour a 9-by-4 1/2-inch metal loaf pan.
  3. Spread the walnut halves in a pie plate and toast them for about 8 minutes, until they are fragrant.
  4. Transfer the toasted walnuts to a cutting board and coarsely chop them, then freeze for 5 minutes to cool.
  5. In a large bowl, whisk the flour with the baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  6. In a medium bowl, mix the sugar with the eggs, vegetable oil and fat-free yogurt.
  7. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients along with the grated zucchini and toasted walnuts and stir until the batter is evenly moistened.
  8. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 1 hour and 10 minutes, until the loaf is risen and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  9. Let the loaf cool on a rack for 30 minutes before unmolding and serving.
