Do you have zucchini growing in your garden this year? Or, do you have friends that share some of their bounty? This recipe for zucchini bread is my family’s favorite bread! I can barely keep it in the house!
What I like to do if I have a lot of zucchini is shred it all, and freeze 2 cups each into freezer bags. Then, when you want to make the bread, there is very little mess! The liquid will separate from the zucchini a little after it is defrosted, but all you have to do it empty the bag (liquid and all!) into the other ingredients.
Best Zucchini Bread
3 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups squash, raw, grated
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup raisins or nuts, optional
Preheat oven to 325°. Mix together all dry ingredients. Add squash, oil, eggs and raisins or nuts and mix well. Grease and flour two large loaf pans. Bake 1 to 1-1/4 hours. Pumpkin or banana can be used in place of squash.

Yum! I can’t wait to try this! Thanks for tasty and healthy treat idea… my family loves using veggies in new ways and it has been too long since we had this.
Recently, I found a giant zucchini and made grilled pizza with it. They loved it, even my 6 year old ate it (had to make it twice this summer)!
I haven’t tried grilled pizza, sounds like I’ll have to! I have a hard time getting some of my kids to eat veggies, but they love this bread. Enjoy! 🙂
