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.

Note: 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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Buttermilk Apple Pie Zucchini Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Shred apples and zucchini leaving the skins on. Set aside.
  2. Using 2 8" bread loaf pans, place foil in center overlapping the sides for more ease to lift out the bread. Grease with non-stick spray.
  3. Mix wet ingredients and spices together using an electric mixer on low-med speed.
  4. On low speed, slowly add dry ingredients.
  5. Then add apples and zucchini and mix until combined.
  6. Optional: Add 1/2 cup of your favorite nuts to the batter for a yummy crunch! My favorites are pistachios :)
  7. Split the batter between the two loaf pans.
  8. Add crumble ingredients to a bowl.
  9. Cut cold butter into the ingredients until crumbles form.
  10. Split crumble mixture between the two loaf pans pressing the crumbles slightly into the batter.
  11. Bake for 60 minutes. Cool 20 minutes before removing from loaf pan.
  12. Cool completely before cutting into and serving. Enjoy!
