17 May

 19 of the best zucchini bread recipes.  If you're wondering how do you make zucchini bread, then check out these amazing recipes from the best bloggers.  This has recipes for chocolate chip zucchini bread, traditional zucchini bread, healthy zucchini bread, and lemon zucchini bread.  


My husband likes to plant about 2,291 zucchini plants each year.  Or at least it seems like we have that many.  I'm the neighbor sneaking zucchini onto everyone's porches just to get rid of it.


Sure, we like zucchini chips, zucchini fries, and zucchini boats.  But zucchini bread recipes are by far my favorite way to use extra zucchini.


I make several loaves in the late summer and freeze them for later.  I have a favorite recipe that I like, but one can only eat so much zucchini bread.





So I went looking for the best zucchini bread recipes.  I scoured the Internet looking for zucchini bread recipes, and I found 19 amazing ones to add to my list.  


If you're wondering how do you make zucchini bread, then look no further.


19 of the Best Zucchini Bread Recipes


Before we get to the best zucchini bread recipes, I want to answer some of the common questions when making zucchini bread.


Do You Have to Peel Zucchini For Bread?


No, you do not need to peel zucchini for bread.  The peel has a lot of nutrients in it, so you want to keep that in the zucchini bread recipe.  


Overgrown zucchini can get tough peels, so you can peel it if you need to.


What Can I Substitute for Vegetable Oil in Zucchini Bread?


I almost always use my homemade applesauce in place of vegetable oil in quick bread recipes.  It makes the break lighter and fluffier. 


How Many Zucchini is  2 Cups Grated?


Most zucchini bread recipes call for 2 cups of grated zucchini.  You will need 2-3 medium sizes zucchini to get 2 cups of grated zucchini.





What Can I Substitute for Zucchini in Zucchini Bread?


These zucchini bread recipes need the water content from the zucchini.  The shredded zucchini almost melts into the bread.  However, there may be some green flecks. 


You can substitute summer squash for zucchini to make a zucchini bread recipe.
