Zucchini-Parmesan Loaf

The bread is delicious on its own, or spread with creamy ricotta cheese. Try toasting the slices.

  • prep: 15 mins
    total time: 2 hours
  • servings: 8

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup olive oil, plus more for pan
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled), plus more for pan
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese (about 4 ounces)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/2 pound (about 1 medium) zucchini, coarsely grated

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brush a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan (6-cup capacity) with oil; dust with flour, and tap out excess.

  2. Step 2

    In a small bowl, whisk oil, milk, and eggs. In a large bowl, whisk flour, Parmesan, baking powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; mix in zucchini, then egg mixture until just moistened (batter will be very thick, like biscuit dough).

  3. Step 3

    Transfer batter to prepared pan; press in gently. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 60 to 70 minutes (tent with foil if loaf starts to brown too quickly). Cool 15 minutes in pan; turn out loaf onto a rack to cool completely.

    Awesome recipe! Just that 1 n 1/2 tsp of salt makes it a little bit too salty for our taste...
