This Spiced Zucchini Bread recipe is one of my favorite ways to use up zucchini during the summer. Every year, I plant zucchini in the garden and every year I find one or two zucchini that grows as big as baseball bats. I try. I really do. But, they hide well. If you’re like me, I hope this list will give you some new ideas.
Spiced Zucchini Bread
I cannot tell you how many times I’ve been asked to bring along this recipe to family functions. The cinnamon and walnuts really give it a unique taste. Although, you can play around with the spices and use a different type of nut or seed when you make it.
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 cups grated unpeeled zucchini
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 cup chopped lightly toasted walnuts or pecans
- cream cheese, at room temperature, for serving (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 325F and grease two 8x4x2 1/2 inch loaf pans.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the eggs until foamy. Add the vegetable oil, sugar, zucchini, and vanilla extract and mix well. Add the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and baking powder and mix until well blended. Stir in the nuts. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared loaf pans, and tap them gently on the counter to release any air bubbles.
- Bake until the loaves have risen and are golden brown and a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes. Allow the bread to cool in the pans for 5 minutes; then turn the loaves out onto wire racks to cool.
- Serve the bread warm, sliced and spread with cream cheese if desired.
This recipe is from Farm to Fork by Emeril Lagasse as previously reviewed.
