Zucchini Bread recipe

Fill your mini loaf pan about 3/4 full. My mini loaf pan is from NordicWare, but any brand will do. Check your local kitchen store, even Target and Walmart I bet sell them πŸ™‚

Zucchini Bread recipe

Totally optional but absolutely delicious is to sprinkle the tops of the batter with some sanding sugar. If you don’t have sanding sugar, granulated works just fine too πŸ™‚

Once these babies cool a bit, drizzle them with as much icing as your heart desires. I may or may not have added more to my loaf, ha!

    I love that you made mini loaves rather than say muffins or a full size loaf – so adorable! And that is truly the icing on the cake pinned!

    Those are adorable! I made zucchini bread this weekend but now I need to make another batch so I can add the white chocolate chips and icing! The most delicious way to use up the overabundance of zucchini, for sure!

    Funny how i grated zucchini for the freezer today and now came across your recipe.

  22. 22

    That zucchini bread sounds to be very good, but I it would be great if there are a picture of cuted one to see the inside consistence because I tried some different recipes for muffins and bread with zucchini and the result was not very good. They were like wet inside πŸ™ May be I’m doing something wrong.

    Sherri says:

    This looks delish! My kids don’t like white chocolate, do you think it would turn out just as good with either regular chocolate chips or the cinnamon chips?

  24. 24

    These are too cute! I totally would have added more frosting to mine too πŸ™‚

  25. 25

    Ahh I wish I made these for breakfast!! Looks super delish!

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net
    the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that
    they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail
    upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    Dana says:

    Hi…does the zucchini need to be squeezed out? I think mine had too much moisture so the result was ugly, but tasted great. Thanks!!

    I made this successfully for a couple of years. Now the white chocolate chips melt every time. I don’t understand the problem. ??
