Cook's Notes

If you plan to bake this bread in a smaller loaf pan, be sure to fill it no more than three-quarters full to prevent the batter from overflowing in the oven.

    Large zucchini means what. Shouldn't you use how many cups? I have had zucchini up to 16 or so inches. That would be way too much for that amount of flour.

      I dunno if they adjusted the recipe since your comment but this is what the directions say: Grate zucchini on the large holes of a box grater (to yield 1 3/4 cups)

      I would use 1 1/2 cups of zucchini. It is maddening when they tell you the ingredient without the measurement. I had a double zucchini recipe which called for 3 cups of zucchini. This recipe is for one, so it's safe to say that 1 1/2 should be perfect. I do believe the nutmeg is a bit much. I only used 1/2 tsp.

    I followed the written recipe, not the video, and this bread turned out amazing! It made my house smell so good for the holidays. I split the batter into 4 mini loaf pans instead of one large loaf so that I could give them as gifts. I also added one extra TBS of granulated sugar because I thought it wasn't quite sweet enough on its own. I only had to bake them for 30-35 minutes instead of 45 - 55. This is my new favorite bread. It is really quick and easy to make. I give it 5 stars! Thanks for sharing!

    The best recipe for Zucchini Bread I have ever tried. The recipe was super easy to follow, and comes out delicious every time I've made it, which is about 20 times since November. I made small breads and gave them away as holiday gifts to friends and family, and only received praise from the recipients. I added chopped pecans and the recipe was still delicious. The bread is a great way to get vegetables into my young nieces and nephews!

    In video she says 3/4 cup oil but in written recipe it calls for 2/3 cup oil........quite a bit of difference, can this be corrected please, no need to go to trouble making the bread if it isn't going to be perfect! Thank you.....

    Wondering can you use butter in stead of oil and would it be the same amount?

    The bread was good. And to get my boyfriend to eat veggies this is a sneaky way I can do it. I loved the spice to the bread and how moist it was. The only change in made is I added raisins to it and I did not have any ginger at the time so still making it it turn out very good, so now that I do it the same way all the time.

    I made this but used apple sauce and coconut oil instead of the vegetable oil. I also added some caramel crunchy things on top. Super delicious.
