I was excited about this recipe too. I love gingerbread. I replaced the oil with pumpkin. I added 3/4 c. currants (because I needed to use them) and when I got to my zucchini (thawed and drained) there wasn't quite 2 1/2 cups so I filled in with grated carrot. I'll make this often! Thanks Sarah-May!
I had a lot of frozen zucchini in the freezer so figured this would be a great way to use some of it up and was very excited when I came across this gingerbread recipe because it fell in the Christmas theme. I followed the recipe and baked them for 55 minutes and when I took them out of the oven they completely deflated and went flat. They ended up tasting horrible and I was so disappointed...I had made up enough of the batter to make 8 loaves....next time I will do a trial run of 2 loaves first before planning on making to give away.
Note from the Allrecipes.com editorial staff: 9/12/11 We chaged the baking temperature from 425 to 325 degrees at the submitter's request.
Could not wait to make this! Only changes I made were to use applesauce instead of oil, and I turned down the oven heat to 350 once I put pans in (thought 425 way too high for baking.) This makes a very moist and tasty bread, more of a spice bread than a gingerbread. You do not even know there is zucchini in it after it finished baking. I would make this again.
This was great! I used a tablespoon of vanilla and sour cream for the vanilla yogurt. Made me feel like it was the holidays.
I followed the recipe fairly closely, except that I used a Korean squash from my MIL's garden, and swapped 1 c. of whole wheat flour, with excellent results. Very moist with great gingerbread flavor - everyone loved it. I had never cooked Korean squash before and wasn't sure it would turn out, but you couldn't tell the difference. I'll be making this one again!
Great recipe! I used buttercup squash from my garden in place of the zucchini and it was delicious! I also tried this bread with sour cream in place of the yogurt and added pure vanilla extract (I did not have vanilla yogurt on hand) and it was just as good. I omitted the cloves, I don't care for their overpowering taste. Great versatile recipe!
This a fantastic recipe! I only had a cup and a half of zucchini. I used a cup of fresh plums to make up for the rest. I also increased the ginger to 3 tsp. The bread came out moist and tangy (from the plums). OH MY GOD SOOOOOO GOOD! thank you so much Sarah- May!
