An easy recipe to make that yields a great moist bread. The ultimate in comfort food. Yum!
This beautiful recipe yields a beautiful bounty of bread! I used jumbo muffin containers and, like most reviewers here, subbed half the oil with applesauce, used pumpkin pie spice, and cut the sugar a bit. They rose up nicely and smelled wonderful while baking. My youngest son refuses virtually all veggies, but he was hanging around the kitchen the whole time I made these--he couldn't wait to taste them. Thanks for a great post; I'll use it all summer until all the zucchini in my garden is gone! :)
Well this was my first time ever making zucchini bread, and I made it with my first home grown zucchini, so I was really wanting it to turn out good. Your recipe did not disappoint, I think the suggestion of squeezing out the liquid may have made the recipe as I was really surprised at how much liquid came out. I followed another reviewers suggestion and used 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce and 1/2 cup oil and it worked - the bread was tender and moist. I also reduced the sugar to one cup as I do not like real sweet stuff, and I thought it came out perfect. Thank you HappyBunny, this will be my go to recipe and I am sure I will be using it many more times, as I have tons of zucchini already.
