Not sure what to do with those zucchinis in the fridge? Make bread out of them by giving our Honey Zucchini Bread recipe a try! It’s packed with mouthwatering flavors from the zucchini, honey, and a bit of cinnamon. We’ve made it with some walnuts to give your bread an excellent crunch in the middle of that soft, bread goodness. A unique twist from the usual loaves of bread brought into gatherings, it is sure to wow a crowd looking for something a little more different. 

The best part is, the zucchini that’ll be the star of this bread is rich in many nutrients and high in antioxidants. Zucchini also promotes healthy digestion thanks to its high fiber content. The sweet accompaniment to this bread, honey, is not without its fun benefits as well. It also contains antioxidants that help reduce heart disease. On its own, it’s a natural sweetener, but mixed with baking, it amps up the flavor to a new level. 

We love the key texture of succulence from the zucchini when it comes to this bread. The moisture from the zucchini keeps the bread flavorsome even after refrigerating. And we know it can also be a bit intimidating to use this summer squash, as it comes with a lot of liquid. For this, we suggest lightly blotting your shredded zucchini with some paper towels. This little trick will keep extra liquids from turning your bread mushy while still keeping the needed moisture to make the bread soft and luscious.

Many will find the combination of zucchini and bread to be odd. But we guarantee you that it is something you’ll be wanting seconds for. And don’t be afraid to add your own personal touch to it, as this zucchini bread recipe can be versatile. Many tend to sprinkle some chocolate chips on top or mixed into the bread itself for added sweetness. Now wouldn’t that be delightful? This bread is perfect to devour with some tea or our Harvest Coffee Cider for more robust flavors. Try this zucchini bread recipe out for your next bake sale, or simply enjoy it with friends and family!

Commonly Asked Questions

How do I ensure my zucchini bread is done?

You can use the classic toothpick test method. 50 minutes into baking, take a toothpick, and stick it in the center of your bread. If it comes out wet, that means it will need to bake a little longer. But if it comes out dry, your bread should be good to take out of the oven.

Do I need to peel my zucchinis for this bread?

Peeling the zucchini is not necessary. In fact, we recommend having them skin-on as they add additional fiber and flavor to your bread. You won’t even realize it’s there once it’s all baked.
