Persnickety Plates + Zucchini – A love story.

I love zucchini just about any way you can serve it – zucchini boat turkey tacos, roasted zucchini, chocolate drop cookies…this is getting long – just check out my zucchini tag here.

CLASSIC ZUCCHINI BREAD

I first shared this recipe on Mama Loves Food last year but I want it to live here too.

I don’t think my zucchini crop is going to make it this year – it doesn’t look very promising. Luckily, my dad is also growing some and there’s always the farmer’s market/grocery store.

I love baking with zucchini – it makes for a really moist bread (or muffin…) without adding any flavor. Plus, it’s a vegetable so it helps me justify eating way more than I should.

This recipe makes two loaves – plenty to share (or not). I added mini chocolate chips to one, in addition to the pecan chips, and left the other one “plain”.

Things you may need to make this Zucchini Bread…
A box grater – doesn’t need to be fancy, just needs to get the job done
Loaf pans – this recipe makes two loaves, so you’ll need two
A whisk – you don’t even need a mixer for this recipe, but you do need a whisk, why not a pretty one?
