I have been using this recipe for years from the first cookbook that I ever owned, my Betty Crocker's Big Red Cookbook from high school home economics class. I grease all sides of loaf pan with shortening and dust with flour to prevent sticking. Although I enjoy Zucchini Bread with raisins and walnuts, I make it for my father without either (he detests raisins and has a nut allergy). It is delicious both ways. I recommend tightly wrapping the uncut, fully-cooled loaf in plastic wrap and aluminum foil and allowing it to set for 3 days at room temperature to combine flavors and increase moistness (the resting period really improves the taste and texture of the Zucchini Bread.) Then, store it in the refrigerator. Thank you, Johnsdeere, for posting this wonderful recipe from my favorite cookbook!
I made 1 zucchini bread and used less sugar. I omitted the nuts. The bread was moist and so good. Thanks Johnsdeere :) Made for PAC Fall 2012
These are so yummy! I had a few zucchini's and my children don't like it for dinner so I tried this recipe. To make it more kid friendly I finely chopped the zucchini in the food processor, made mini muffins instead of loaves, and fed it to them in a dark room while they were watching t.v. so they wouldn't see the green specs. I also changed the name to "Really Yummy Muffins". They were wise to me when they turned the lights on but the muffins were gone by the next day and they were asking for more. Thanks for posting!
Loved this recipe. its a keeper!!
