Zucchini Bread

I was visiting my sister-in-law over Christmas and teaching her little babies to Bake. One of the many things on the list was Zucchini Bread to give all our baking a healthy touch somewhere. I grated half the Zucchini after peeling it and then handed it over to the younger sister to grate. 5 minutes later when I came back to check she was grating without peeling and I was gasping! But the job had to be completed so we went ahead with it not knowing what it could possibly result in – nothing happened! It actually ended up looking pretty and giving it this Christmas touch with the nice bright green specks in it. So by all means if you are getting experimental you can make it with and without it and if it is really around Christmas it will just look wonderful resting in all its glory and adding to the festivities in its environment.  It really does save lots of time and hassle of peeling though. And since then I have never peeled the Zucchini. 


1 1/2 C Zucchini grated
1/2 + 1/3 C sugar
1/3 C oil
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/2 C Flour (can use mix of whole wheat and all-purpose, or only use one)
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 C walnuts


  1. Preheat oven at 180 C
  2. Whisk together eggs, sugar, oil, vanilla and zucchini until well combined and then add walnuts and stir together
  3. In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon
  4. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined
  5. Line a loaf tine with wax paper or grease the loaf tin and pour batter into loaf tin and bake for 60 minutes, or until an inserted skewer comes out clean
  1. I like to use a mix of flour, whole wheat and all purpose. If you only use all purpose, the      bread will come out slightly less brown than if you use whole wheat or even a mix
  2. Once the flour has been added do not whisk, but stir the ingredients to combine, otherwise the bread will bake to be tough
  3. Depending on your oven, if the bread seems to have cooked from the top and not inside, cover the top with foil and let it continue to bake until done

Mix eggs, sugar, oil, vanilla and zucchini
