Friends Chuck and Judy gave me Zucchini two years ago and a recipe for bread to go with them.

Though I like Carrot Cake and Banana Bread this was my first attempt at Zucchini Bread.

As always I made the recipe my own with additives and changes.

I'm always asked for this treat when in season.

How to Make Sid's Zucchini Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. In large bowl add 3 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and mix well. Set aside. I use a large cast aluminum fork for this and the rest of the mixing. It sees a lot of duty time in the kitchen.
  2. In second large bowl mix all remaining ingredients well.
  3. Add 1 to 1 1/2 cups water. When well mixed start incorporating the flour and additives a third at a time, until all is well incorporated. Should be the consistency of a thick cake batter.
  4. Lightly oil bread pans, 2 regular sized or mini-loaf pans. Fill pans to 2/3 full. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour, and until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. I rotate pans 180 degrees, 40 minutes into baking to insure even baking. I usually make one large loaf and 2 min-loafs, from this recipe. The result is moist heavy loaves.
  5. I need to spread some butter or cream cheese on mine. I share the bounty so I don't have to get the waist extended on my trousers. Good at room temp or from the fridge.
  6. Note: Chineese Five Spice adds a unique Star Anise flavor or slight licorice flavor. It is optional.
