Zucchini Bread, Make a Tonne
5 March 2015

If you have a mountain of zucchini staring at you, like I do, then this is an awesome and super easy way to use them up. And because this recipe is so simple, you can double it, triple it or even quadruple it and fill your freezer with zucchini bread, for those less than inspired days. And let’s face it, once daylight savings clocks off, those days come thick and fast.

I do love the summer glut of zucchini, my favourite thing is hearing kids, other than mine, saying “NO MUM, PLEASE NOT ZUCCHINI AGAIN!” or “I KNOW THERE IS ZUCCHINI IN THIS!”. It’s great to know I am not alone in the mission to disguise those green beauties within every meal consumed throughout February and March.

Be warned, your house will smell irresistible while this is baking and I can not be held responsible for your lack restraint in devouring loaves of warm zucchini bread.

  • 1 1/2 cups of self raising flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
