Olive Oil Zucchini Bread

My neighbors, Mike and Mel are always good for something fun to bake with. This time it was zucchini. 


1 ½ cups grated zucchini
cup light brown sugar
cup olive oi
cup plain Greek yogurt
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
½ cup chopped walnuts


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8-inch loaf pan.

In a large bowl, use a rubber spatula to mix together the grated zucchini, sugar, olive oil, yogurt, eggs and vanilla extract.

Whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, lemon zest and spices in a separate bowl. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Fold in the walnuts if using.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 40 to 55 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through baking. The bread will be done when a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove the bread from the pan and cool on a rack completely before cutting and serving.

I got the recipe here.
