I’m a big fan of cornbread and this Cheesy Zucchini Cornbread is perfect for summer, when there seems to be no shortage of zucchini at farmer’s markets and in most homegrown gardens! It’s a savory, cheesy cornbread, flavored with Italian seasoning and a hint of garlic and onion. Cheddar cheese is mixed in the batter and sprinkled on top. Continue reading →
Every summer, I usually have several friends share their bounty of zucchini with me, and this Strawberry-Zucchini Bread is one of the yummy things I make with it! It’s a really good, moist bread with chopped fresh strawberries that give it a nice fruity flavor. It’s such a great bread for the warm weather months! The summery strawberries mixed with shredded zucchini and spices (cinnamon and nutmeg) make a really tasty combination! 🙂
Just about everyone I know who has a garden grows summer squash. Summer squash usually grows really well, so home gardeners often have an abundance of it—which is really nice if you have lots of good recipes to use it in, like zucchini bread, for example, or a yummy squash casserole! Here’s another really good squash recipe that I found in Farm-to-Table Desserts. If you’re a vegetable gardener or love to shop at your local farmer’s market, you’ll enjoy this cookbook that shows you how to make yummy treats with fresh, organic ingredients.
I’ve posted a few zucchini recipes this summer and here’s another one for you! This Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread is so moist and has some yummy ingredients like brown sugar, a little honey, and best of all, a whole cup of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips! That’s a pretty good amount of chocolate! The grated zucchini is probably the healthiest ingredient in this (well, there’s also some canola or olive oil in there, too).
Apple-Zucchini Bread just seems so perfect for this time of year—early fall is when I’m inspired to bake apple-flavored things! This recipe not only has apples, but zucchini too, which is great—you can never have enough good zucchini recipes for all that zucchini from the garden, can you? Or in my case, from the farmer’s market!
This quick bread has a subtle apple flavor and is also flavored with cinnamon and nutmeg. You can add pecans or walnuts in it too (I didn’t add any nuts to the loaf pictured above). It’s a moist, dense loaf on the inside, and a little crispy and crumbly as you cut into it on the outside. Make sure you grease and flour your pan well–I found that I also needed to loosen the edges of the loaf with a knife so it would come out of the pan easily.
