If you love banana bread, then you will love this zucchini bread recipe. Moist, tender, and delightfully sweet, this zucchini bread is sure to become a staple baked good in your home.
Like bananas, zucchini provides incredible tenderness to baked goods. A zucchini bread recipe like this is always an excellent way to use up any extra zucchini you may have lying around in the fridge.
To make this zucchini bread recipe, you don’t need to peel your zucchini. Instead, you can grate the zucchini with the peel on and then simply let it rest in a sieve over a large bowl so that the zucchini can drain.
It’s important to remove any excess moisture from your zucchini so that it doesn’t make your zucchini bread soggy. We like to go one step further by pat-drying our grated zucchini with a paper towel for good measure.
Other than the draining step mentioned above, zucchini bread is as simple to make as any easy banana bread recipe or pumpkin bread recipe. Simply stir the ingredients together in a bowl just until they’re combined, making sure not to over-stir your batter, then pour the batter into a quick bread pan (a.k.a. a loaf pan) and bake.
If you want to make zucchini muffins, simply bake this zucchini bread recipe in a muffin tin for about half the time. You can also stir in chopped walnuts or pecans similar to the way it’s typically done in banana nut bread.
The options are endless with this zucchini bread recipe, and because this homemade bread is so good, we have a feeling you’re going to want to make this recipe frequently and have fun adding your own flair.
