Vegan Zucchini Bread

Monday, September 3, 2012

Recently my parents sent us home with a bunch of goodies from their garden. We got potatoes, beans and massive zucchinis. The next night I made a dinner (!!!) of fried potatoes and beans. (I'm not sure if I've ever shared that - I don't cook. I hate cooking. Hopefully someday I'll learn to love it but for now Kevin cooks and I bake so I'm pretty proud of my attempt at cooking. It was pretty tasty.) But the zucchinis I wasn't really sure what to do with. I've never even eaten a one. So, my first foray into the world of zucchinis starts with zucchini bread!

 I have no idea what zucchini bread should taste like so I don't have anything to compare it to but this stuff is pretty darn awesome! Pretty darn awesome as in I devoured a whole loaf by myself in two days. It's certainly something I can see myself baking a lot of in the future.
 Vegan Zucchini Bread
makes two loaves
6T milled flax seed
1/2C warm water
2C light brown sugar
1/2C oil
1/2C cinnamon apple sauce
1t vanilla extract
2 1/2C grated zucchini
2C flour
1C whole wheat flour
1T baking powder
1/2t baking soda
1T cinnamon
1t salt
2t nutmeg
1C nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease your bread pan.

First completely mix together your milled flax seed and water. (It will become kind of thick.) Add in light brown sugar, oil, applesauce and vanilla extract. Beat well. Add in zucchini and stir. In a seperate bowl combine your dry ingredients. Add dry to wet ingredients and mix together. Add in any extras (We tried cranberries in our first loaf!) Divide into two bread pans. Bake for 53-55 minutes.
When it's done, and cooled completely you can also glaze it. It makes it twice as tasty! I just mixed up some soy milk, powdered sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract and spooned it on. I found that the glazed version was better on day two after the glaze had completely hardened and had a chance to soak into the bread a little bit. It is a PERFECT snack.
Enjoy!

    I've actually been wanting to bake a zucchini bread for ages, but I haven't been able to cross it off my list yet.

    Did you know you can bake zucchini brownies as well?

  7. Oh man, that looks amazing! I love zucchini bread. I definitely have to try this recipe. Also, I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who bakes a loaf of bread and devours the whole thing in two or three days by myself. There's really nothing better than fresh, homemade bread.

  12. Zucchinis are magic vegetables. Great in sweet baked goods, and savory cooking alike. I like to slice the into long thin strips like fettucini and fry them lightly with other great things like tiny tomatos, olives, mushrooms and asparagus and serve with a little cheese melting over the top. Also nice with any pasta sauce as well.
    I also love the Italian way of frying thin slices of zucchini in a hot pan, then throwing in vinegar and mint to sizzle for a short while - it's delicious!
