This easy zucchini bread is as delicious and moist, as it is simple to make. Just a few simple steps and basic ingredients and you have a wholesome loaf (or two) of zucchini bread on your plate.
You can get creative and add so many fun and exciting ingredients to your zucchini bread, chia seeds or ground flex seeds for extra nutrition and protein, chocolate chips for a gooey chocolatey goodness in every bite, different spices or nuts.
Zucchini plays a quintessential role in keeping the bread extra moist. Those, nutrient rich veggies are mostly composed of water. The water is released in the baking process helping deliver this wonderful culinary delight. This super tender melt-in your-mouth goodness is so tasty you just can’t get enough if it. Everyone loves it, kids and adults, and it is nutritious and filling. What an amazing breakfast idea, perfect compliment to your morning cup of coffee.
You don’t even need to peel the zucchini. First of all the skin is pretty thin and soft and will be completely integrated into the bread by the end of the baking precess. Second, most of the zucchini’s beneficial nutrients and vitamins are in the skin, so we definitely want to get those. I do recommend to squeeze the zucchini of excess water for the best results. Just to keep the dry/wet ratio in the bread balanced.
The taste of cooked zucchini is pleasantly bland. It’s texture is soft but not mushy, with some floral notes and some sweetness to it, but nothing overpowering! It works great in the bread. A hint of cinnamon and nutmeg adds a wonderful aroma and it’s distinct sweet and savory flavor to the bread.
And I love the walnuts. Multidimensional flavor of walnuts that is earthy, fruity and even a little bit tart, takes this bread to the next level. And you get a nice little crunch in every bite. I love the contrast of textures: extra moist bread and firm spongy walnuts.
The smell of warm roasting cinnamon, wafting from the oven, is taunting. No-one can resist this super easy and delicious zucchini bread. Serve it with cream cheese an enjoy!
