I used to make a zucchini bread like this years ago but lost the recipe. This is the exact same recipe I used to make. This is the best tasting zucchini bread I had ever had. The crushed pineapple really helps in making this bread really moist. This bread is also good with 1/2 cup grated carrots (for color) and some chopped walnuts. Buy extra zucchini, grate all the zucchini, and freeze pre-measured in 2 cup quantities. It freezes really well and you will always have zucchini on hand to make this bread.
Three and a half stars, actually. I believe this recipe would benefit from another 1/2 cup of sugar to really make the flavor pop. There may also be too much leavening, as it did not rise quite as high as I would have liked.
Very nice bread. I took the advice of others and reduced the sugar to 1 cup and used half brown, half white. Added nuts, and did have to double up on the spices since this does make two loaves. Replaced half the oil with applesauce. Sweet and moist and flavorfull w/changes. Also added half tsp. cardamom. This made 1 8 in loaf and 2 small mini loaves so not sure if making 2 8 in. loaves they would be more on the flat side.
This bread was great! It was moist and soft and not gummy or anything! My 2 1/2 year old daughter loved the "vegetable cake" and ate tons of it. I also made this with 1 cup of applesauce in place of the oil. I made it with unsweetened applesauce and the bread was VERY sweet. I definitely would not want any more sweetness so I strongly recommend using unsweetened applesauce. One more caution is that this does not seem to keep well at room temperature. After the 2nd day it turned slimy and didn't taste as good, so I would say either eat it up by the 2nd day or keep it in the fridge. It definitely tasted best on the first day. I'm also going to add some nuts next time.
My whole family loved this recipe. I made a few changes. I sprayed the pans with Pam then sprinkled a sugar/cinnamon mixture instead of the flour to coat the pans. I also added 1 cup of chopped walnuts, 1 cup of coconut and 1 cup of chopped marischino cherries. This will be the only zucchini bread I make now.
I DOUBLED THIS RECIPE AND ADDED APPLESAUCE IN PLACE OF THE OIL. MY HUSBAND DOES NOT LIKE ZUCCHINI BREAD AT ALL. AND AT LAST COUNT HE HAS GONE BACK FOR A THIRD TIME. BY THE WAY, SINCE I COOK A BIG MEAL ON SUNDAY SO WE CAN EAT EARLY IN THE DAY, THIS PROVIDES AN OPPORTUNITY TO MUNCH ALL DAY. I LOVED THIS ONE. GOOD JOB, SOMEONE.
This was awesome bread!! I used 3 eggs, put in 2 t. baking powder, added double the cinnamon, and did a sugar coat on the pan instead of flour and they came out perfect. The bread is flavorful and moist. YUM! I have a lot of zucchini to use up and this is my new favorite!
This is very good. My 4-year old just ate a thick slice warm from the oven. My only deviation from recipe was using undrained crushed pineapple (juice was about 1/2 cup) and only 1/2 cup oil. The bread is still very moist.
