peeled, seeded, and shredded cucumber
coarsely chopped pecans
Very yummy! Great way to use up cucumbers. We only used 1/2 the amount of oil and the rest applesauce. It did take some time to peel and shred, but is worth it! We used walnuts since we didn't have any pecans. Thanks for the recipe!
This was definitely different. I was surprised by the amount of cucumber it called for. Other "veggie" breads such as squash & zucchini bread only call for 1 cup. Or maybe since I blended my cukes in my Ninja, I ended up with more per cup? Anyway, the little ones liked it and I found that, toasted with butter, I could eat it. The cucumber flavor is very strong and hangs around. Since I have a lot of cukes from a friend's garden, I will try this again, but reduce the amount of cucumber and see how that works.
This is a fantastic recipe to use the cucumbers in your garden that got away from you. You know the big giants. Or even the smaller ones that you have 24 of them hanging around. DO NOT skip the step of salting the cucumbers and letting them rest. Mine sat for about 3 hours before I used them and I was amazed at how much water the salt pulled from them. The taste and texture is a lot like zucchini bread. I baked mine in 5 - 3 1/2" x 6" pans, 2 without pecans and 3 with pecans. They were done in 38 minutes. I have 2 more cukes on my counter that I'm baking 10 mini loaves to freeze. My DS loved this and wants to take a few back to school with him. Our favorite way to eat this bread is toasted with a thin layer of butter (the guys) dry (for me) for breakfast. Thanks Marcella for posting this recipe - it is a keeper!
This was great- moist and flavorful. The cucumber taste was good and not overwhelming. The only things I did differently was I drained my cucumbers for at least an hour and I used walnuts instead of pecans. I will make again and pass this recipe on to others. Thanks Marcella!
another perfect way to use up too many cucumbers. I used unsweetened applesauce instead of the oil to make it a bit healthier. No one tasted the cucumber! Thank you!
This bread is delicious! Super moist, it tastes alot like zucchini or pumpkin bread. I made my batch a little bigger (3 large loaves), added some shredded zucchini and ground flaxseed and put in a little less sugar than the recipe stated. A little healthier for you and it still tasted great. This is a great way to use all the extra cukes in your garden that you can't get around to eat or pickling.
If you are making cucumber bread, you are going to expect it to taste a little bit like cucumber. We thought it tasted like pumpkin bread, and we didn't notice the cucumber taste very much except as an after taste. I did not peel and seed all my cucumbers as they were directly out of my garden and did not have tough skins or large seeds. I too substituted applesauce for the oil. It baked well and sliced easily. I am adding raisins to the bread today.
I missed the step to drain cucumbers and it still turned out great. Making more to put in freezer to save for Christmas
