Zucchini Bread

Just back from a trip to California. Had a great time with my cousin, his wife and our little nephew. 18 months old and such a talker (he labels everything around him) - we miss him.
I was mighty impressed with Yosemite NP and the food there. All the grills had a morning star burger without cheese and whole wheat burger buns. These morning star burgers were grilled on a separate grill - away from the meats and they tasted YUMMY!! Other foods we saw at the NP - veggie chilli, vegan hummus basket - in addition to the regular pizza, grilled cheese, salads, yogurt, fruits etc.

With all the zucchini coming from the CSA, I have been trying to find multiple ways to cook it. Last year, I made multiple zucchini breads with eggs and butter. Last week, I tried to find recipes for the same without eggs and butter. I found one!! I actually found two!!

I combined this one and this recipe with ingredients I had at home and made my own zucchini bread and muffins. The muffins stayed in the oven for a shorter time, so we could serve it to friends who were visiting and the bread is still in our fridge! I used a mix of whole wheat and all purpose flours for a healthy result. I also added walnuts and craisins. The resulting bread hardly tastes like zucchini, it's just yummy!!


  1. Looks good. I know I have a chocolate zucchini bread recipe somewhere. It was fabulous. Your first link leads to zucchini Kootu rather than a bread FYI. Oh, about the peach upside down cake...I love teh picture but haven't tried it yet. I am the one who eats the sweets over here so I need ot make only a few. I am in NC right now but will be back and, hopefully, cooking again soon.

  2. Chocolate added to anything is great!! I changed the link to the zucchini bread. Hopefully it works now!
    Have fun in NC!
