Hey y’all! Hope you’ve had a great weekend. I would like to start sharing favorite recipes periodically here on Palmettos and Pineapples, so today I’m sharing a zucchini bread recipe. Last week I baked zucchini bread so that my bestie and I could enjoy some at the beach this past weekend.
Zucchini bread is one of my favorite baked goods to make and eat in the summer. I try to make zucchini bread at least once each summer. Since summer is coming to a close and I hadn’t made it yet this year, it was definitely time last week. This particular zucchini bread recipe is from the kitchen of one of my mom’s friends. I vividly remember savoring this zucchini bread when my mom made it while I was growing up. When I first got into baking years ago, I definitely wanted to try my hand at this zucchini bread recipe. I was pleased with the results and it’s the only recipe I ever use for zucchini bread.
1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
3 eggs, well-beaten
2 cups flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups raw grated zucchini
3 tsp vanilla extract
1. Mix sugar, oil, and eggs
2. Sift together flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt
3. Add to egg mixture
4. Add zucchini and vanilla
5. Pour into 2 greased and floured loaf pans
6. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes
*Be sure to let bread cool completely before removing from pan. This bread freezes well so you can eat one loaf now and freeze the other for later.
The only reason I don’t make this more often is that when I have free time in the summer, I tend to want to be out by the pool rather than inside the kitchen with a hot oven. Also, I love baking but can’t stand having to clean dishes afterwards.
Hope y’all enjoyed this post and I look forward to sharing more recipes in the future. Again, I really don’t cook a ton because I don’t like doing dishes. But I do have multiple tried and true recipes for baked goods I would love to share with y’all. And on the rare occasion that I do cook, I will share any delicious recipes I find.
Happy Baking! If you try this recipe, let me know what you think. I’d love to hear!
