Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread

I got some zucchini from my CSA share and some friends so for a while I was making a lot of zucchini bread.

Here is the recipe I used: (Online Version Here)
Cinnamon Topped Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread (Betty Crocker)

  • 3 cups shredded zucchini (2 to 3 medium)
  • 1 2/3 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cups Gold Medal® whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon cold butter or margarine
  • Move oven rack to low position so tops of pans will be in center of oven. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottoms only of 2 (8×4-inch) loaf pans or 1 (9×5-inch) loaf pan with shortening or cooking spray.
  • In large bowl, stir zucchini, 1 2/3 cups sugar, the oil, vanilla and eggs until well mixed. Stir in remaining bread ingredients; mix well. Divide batter evenly between 8-inch pans or pour into 9-inch pan.
  • In small bowl, mix topping ingredients with fork until crumbly. For 8-inch loaves, sprinkle evenly over batter in both pans. For 9-inch loaf, sprinkle over batter in pan.
  • Bake 8-inch loaves 50 to 60 minutes, 9-inch loaf 1 hour 10 minutes to 1 hour 20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on cooling rack 10 minutes.
  • Loosen sides of loaves from pans; remove from pans and place top side up on cooling rack. Cool completely, about 2 hours, before slicing. Wrap tightly and store at room temperature up to 4 days, or refrigerate up to 10 days.
This is what happens when you don’t let the bread cool and you try and take it out of the pan too early!  That is OK, it gave me an excuse to have a little late night snack.

    • I haven’t tried that but it would probably be a really interesting flavor. I have a recipe for a coconut walnut bread that I like but I haven’t tried the combo with zucchini! Happy baking!
