Amazing Zucchini Bread the Kids Can Make

Amazing Zucchini Bread the Kids Can Make

You can tell zucchini is on my mind. Mainly because that is the only vegetable growing in my garden right now. At least while I was in town. When I left with the kids on our                       10 day adventure there were at least 3 baby zucchini on the plant, my husband says he can not find any. We have either been attacked by deer or squirrels again or I                                               have some huge veggies waiting for me. It is a good thing my kids adore Zucchini, especially  Zucchini breads like the one I am about to share with you. I promise I will get off this zucchini bread thing and try some more savory zucchini recipes like zucchini fries.  Yummy.

 

I adapted this recipe from allrecipes.com and came up with this amazing and moist zucchini bread that is super easy and everyone loves.

My kids did not care for the walnuts and I must agree with them this time. It really does not need the extra crunch.

It does provide some protein but I love to slather it with some plain reduced fat cream cheese. YUMMY.

A pretty straight forward recipe that I added a little more zucchini than suggested to add more moisture and you can see what you are eating, the flakes of green                                       zucchini make this zucchini bread even more appetizing in my opinion.

Allow the bread to bake for 15 minutes before adding the sugar topping. I love using the Turbindo sugar to baked breads to provide a little sparkle to your finished product,

you can find it at Trader Joes.

You must try this Blueberry Zucchini Bread Recipe for it's unique flavor combination.

  1. Wow! It looks like it came out perfect! I love the step by step pics!

  2. I have never had zucchini bread, but this looks super easy and super tasty! I’ll have to try it!

  3. lucky you what else do you make with all the zucchini

  4. Yummy!!!! My husband’s assistant stocks us well with zucchini each September. I’m pinning this to try when it arrives. 🙂

  5. I haven’t had Zucchini bread in ages! And yes, I do like it. But I don’t have a garden and zucchini is pretty darn expensive in the stores around me right now–I might be better off buying a pre made loaf.

  6. I absolutely love zucchini bread and always have. My grandmother first made me this bread when I was a kid and downright refused to eat a zucchini when I saw it in plant form. I think she got this past me more than a handful of times before she finally told me that I had been eating zucchini all along. I probably would have been upset with her if I wasn’t so busy shoving more of it in my mouth!

  7. That looks delicious and super easy. I have been on the lookout for a zucchini bread recipe. Thanks!

  8. Wow! It looks delicious and so easy to make! I’ll definitely try to make it 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
