"My friend Amy recently sent me her recipe for her sweet zucchini bread. This is "...one of our all-time fave recipes for something dessert-like, even if it isn't specific to Thanksgiving." When her daughter brought home a baseball-bat sized zucchini this past summer, this is what they did with it. :) Makes 4 loaves."
Serving Size: 1 (792 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"I just made this zucchini bread for the first time substitute 3 cups of splenda for the sugar and 2 cups of shredded apples for the oil and while it was baking smelled soooo good...As soon as the bread came out of the oven one loaf somehow dissappeared my kids couldnt wait for the loaf to cool before eating...great way to get children to eat their vegetables ..thank you for this great recepe"
"VERY YUMMY!! My whole family loved this recipe and demand that I make it again. I added pecans and did not have mini chips so I ran my regular ones through the food processor. Turned out AWESOME!!"
"When the recipe states use minature chocolate chips, it must be true as I used regular chocolate chips and was shocked to see they all sank to the bottom of the loaf. I found my 4 loaves were completely baked at 50 min. rather than the 1 hour and greasing the pans was not enough as they stuck. Next time I would use flour to coat pans as well."
"Great!!! Easy to make. I used a little more cinnamon. The first time I made the bread I did not have the small chips (which is a must) the larger chips all sank to the bottom of the pan which my husband liked. The second time I used the smaller chips which I liked better since you have chocolate all over!!!!"
"I've been using this recipe for over 3 years and I have co-workers who bring me their zucchini now knowing I will make this bread. It is a favorite and freezes really well for keeping well beyond zucchini season."
"Moist and delicious! I cut the recipe in half and it turned out two perfect loaves. Thanks for sharing."
"This bread turned out fantastic! I used 4 1/2 cups of zucchini and the fibrous remains from some pineapple/carrot juice I made this morning in my juicer. What a great way to use up something I would normally throw out! I also subsituted wheat flour for 2 cups of the white flour and reduced the sugar to 2 1/4 cups and added 3/4 cups of honey. It was plenty sweet, especially with the chocolate chips! "
"This was excellent, better than the farmer's market where I was paying $4.75 a loaf! Now I have two in my freezer and more to come. It will get me through the winter. I made one variation, I added 1 cup of cocoa for a chocolate flavor all the way through. Thanks for the recipe!"
"I made this for out of town company and we all loved it. It was very easy. I halved the recipe and made one regular loaf and three mini loaves. I did however use the full 12 oz of mini chips. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Delicious! I made about 15 mini muffins, 8 mini loaves from a half-batch. Kept the chocolate amount the full bag, but used semi-sweet chunks!
The mini muffins were done after about 35 minutes, the loaves took about 55 minutes. Both ended up with a crispy crust which is the best part, I think!!"
"Delicious! I used applesauce instead of oil which probably made it a little more chewy, but still yummy. I made muffins instead of loaves so I could freeze and warm up individual servings easier. Even my picky kids liked this recipe...and they even knew about the veggies inside!"
"I was skeptical it could be THAT good, but in fact, it IS! My family devoured it (even after I substituted applesauce for half the oil). Of course, I did substitute chocolate chips for nuts in one loaf, too! ;-) But I've tried a lot of recipes and this is the moistest and most delicious. Next time I might cut down the cinnamon just a tad."
"Awesome taste! Made to sell at a bake sale, hoping to have some left but it was gone when I got there. Luckily for me I had a loaf saved back for me. Will make again. Thank-you!"
"My daughter and I made this together. It turned out wonderfully delicious and it smells heavenly while it's baking. We made two big loaves and four mini loaves from this recipe. We gave a couple of the mini loaves to the kids' teachers as a little thank you for all they do. They loved it! "
"Just baked this bread. It was superb. Of course, being a chocolate lover, I doubled the chocolate chips, also the cinnamon. Soooooooooo good!"
"very good recipe. I froze several loaves but they didnt stay in the freezer long."
"I liked it very much. It kept moist for a good while. I made half measures i.e. 2 loaves. I gave one to friends, and half of the other to my neighbour. I didn't tell them about the zucchini. They thought it delicious. I didn;t know what chocolate chips were. The week before I had made chocolate icing that I found too strong. I discarded it, well I put it into the deep freeze. I used that by hacking it into pieces. My idea of chocolate chips!! The only thing I would do differently the next (and there will be) time is to splatter the "chips" as I am filling the tins. My chips all sank to the bottom. Perhaps someone could tell me how to fix that?"
"Yum! I made this when we were having guests in the house. What a great way to sneak vegetables into kids' diets. I used regular chocolate chips and coated them with flour and they didn't sink to the bottom at all. This made two large loaves. One was eaten immediately and the other froze nicely. Great recipe!"
"Just discovered this quick and easy recipe. My family loves it and it is has been a weekly request!"
"This is my new go to zucchini bread - and I thought my other bread was pretty good! I only put in half the choc chips (used dark choc) and thought that was plenty. Kids and adults ate it up. Otherwise, followed directions exactly. Next time, I will substitute half of oil for applesauce and use a mixture of wheat and white flour to make a little healthier."
