Published by on

My gosh this is good. It’s been a while since I’ve made it, but I have quite a bit of zucchini in the garden and I am determined not to waste it.

By the time I had a chance to photograph this, the loaf had been destroyed by the kids. They LOVE this recipe.

Preheat oven to 350 f. Spray a 9x5x3 loaf pan with nonstick spray.

*Must* try this as soon as possible! It’s finally not over 100 degrees here, maybe it will be okay to turn on the oven…

    @Michelle, I haven’t baked most of the summer. We don’t have AC and I can’t stand heating up the kitchen.

It looks interesting, only last week I decorated a birthday cake with black icing, I’m pleased to say it tasted much better than it looked.
Thanks for the post.

Think I’m going to have to make this with the giant zucchini that was hiding in the garden.

Love to eat veggies organically grown from my garden. Wish to have planting space for that.

I got this recipe by googling “real food zucchini bread.” If this is what passes for real food in your family (vegetable oil, white flour, white sugar), you might what to rethink your tag. Not at all real.
