Zucchini Bread


I did not grow up eating zucchini bread. I was introduced to zucchini bread when I worked for corporate America. I was very skeptical at first, but I took a chance and went all in with my eyes wide open for the new experience. I was pleasantly surprised, zucchini bread is delicious. The zucchini keeps the bread moist. I added pecans and golden raisins to add a settle crunch and bits of sweetness to the bread.


If you love zucchini bread you got to try the banana nut bread or the banana nut muffins both equally as moist and delicious. Bread recipes are so versatile because, you have the ability to change up the flavor with fruits and nuts.


This mild slightly sweet bread has a similar take of a muffin, with the warm cinnamon spice and a hint of nutmeg flavor that marries well with the bits of pecans and golden plumb raisins makes it so so satisfying.



Frequently Asked Questions


Should I leave the zucchini bread in the loaf pan to cool?


Line the loaf pan with parchment paper, I normally spray with non stick spray. After the zucchini bread is removed from the oven. Allow to cool for about 8-10 minutes then remove and rest on cooking rack from the pan to avoid the hot pan harden the edges from the heat.


How do you keep zucchini bread from falling?

Make sure to squeeze the excess water from the zucchini after grating it. Less moisture will help the bread from falling.
