Zucchini Loaf

What do you do when zucchini are in season? Aside of drying, freezing, and grilling zucchini one of my favourite ways to use garden fresh zucchini is in zucchini loaf.

Zucchini Loaf

Zucchini loaf is easy to make and always pleases. Serve piping hot with a little butter for a true taste sensation. We also enjoy this bread with spreadable cream cheese. This is one of my favourite zucchini loaf recipes. It freezes well! I recommend vacuum sealing if possible when freezing. I bake the loaf in a silicone loaf pan on convection heat set to 325°F.

ZUCCHINI LOAF

A large, tender loaf.

2 Eggs

Have you tried shredding it then adding to meatloaf? The "Tomato Experiment" entry also uses zucchini.
