How to Make Zucchini Bread or Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Select a large zucchini , peel , cut in half length wise and seed. Grate up the whole zucchini.
  2. Cream together all the wet ingredients above in a large bowl.
  3. sift all dry ingredients above and combine with the creamed mixture until smooth.
  4. Pour into 2 bread loaf pans that have been greased and dusted with flour ( I use Pam bakers spray with the flour in it )
  5. Note : I also like to cook these in small individual aluminum bread pans , just adjust baking time. You can also pour this into a 13x9 pan for a cake.
  6. Bake at 325° for 1 hr. or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Leave in the pans for 15 minutes and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
  8. Note : Bread can be wrapped in aluminum foil after they are cooled and froze , when taking out to use re-bake until heated through and its just like fresh bread or cake again.
  9. Measure the remaining zucchini into 3 cup portions and place in ziploc freezer bags and freeze for future use.
    Note : when you thaw zucchini it will have some liquid , just drain it off before using in the recipe.
