Blue Ribbon Recipe

Looking for a zucchini bread recipe with a twist? We found one! This recipe is nice and moist like most zucchini bread, but the spices are what you'd expect in an apple pie and add a punch of flavor. The apples added to the batter bake in wonderfully and add depth. On top of the bread is a crumble that's thick and full of spices... the perfect complement to the bread. Add this to your recipe box for when zucchini is in season.

How To Make buttermilk apple pie zucchini bread

Test Kitchen Tips
Vanilla powder may be hard to find at your local grocer, but it's readily available online. If you're in a pinch, vanilla paste will work (1:1) but we would not recommend substituting vanilla extract. Vanilla powder and paste have a much more intense flavor than extract. Also, if you don't own an 8-inch loaf pan, use the standard 9x5 but watch the baking time.
