Wonderfully Moist Zucchini Bread

"This zucchini bread is just amazing--you'd never know there are veggies in it! When I was first learning to cook, a beautiful Texan woman taught me a few things--one of them being this recipe. So, give it a try and enjoy! (Thanks Cindy!)"

Questions & Replies

  1. What size loaf pan


  1. Moist! moist! Moist! Clearly the best recipe I've found. I reduced the oil to 3/4 c, and replaced with 1/2 c applesauce. Coarsely shredded zucchini. This is my go- to recipe. Try it!!!!!!!
  2. Not sure what the other reviewer did wrong, but for me this recipe turned out beautifully. It made four mini-loaves that rose perfectly and were super moist as advertised! I am a recent convert to raisins in zucchini bread, so I added both walnuts and raisins to this bread. They are a nice for a change. Baked these for about 35-40 minutes in the mini-loaf pans. My only change was to cut back the sugar to 1 1/4 cups as we like things less sweet. I can attest that this recipe does not deserve a 1 star review and hope others will give it a try.

  3. I made 4 loaves this evening. It is moist, and very tasty. I made a couple substitutions. Cut the sugar in half and used 1/2 c oil and 1/2 c of applesauce. It took 46 minutes to bake in a metal loaf pan and 55 minutes in the ceramic loaf dishes. I will absolutely be using this again. I have so much zucchini. ??
  4. I cooked it to direction but it caved in pretty bad. It still taste ok but looks a bit funny and the texture is just a bit off. I live Colorado so I'm curious if it's an altitude issue.
  5. I didn't have problem to bake these breads. I also reduced the sugar. We found that there was too much baking powder in them and also too much oil. Next time I'll use half oil and half applesauce. Thanks for posting. Made for Bargain Basement tag game


Hi all! Just a bit about me I suppose... I live in Chicago,IL, the city of big shoulders, one of the finest cities in the world! I spend my days at the Shedd aquarium with the belugas, dolphins, penguins, and otters there (mostly getting wet and dirty!) And I'm also workin' on my masters in marine biology. I love to cook, and have found Zaar to be a wonderful resource full of great food and great folks... two of the most important things in life :) Being born in Israel and of Tunisian decent, food is naturally quite important to me.. so this is fun! <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
