Zucchini Bread Competition
Written by: Siri Stevens< Back to Articles
We had a Zucchini bread bake off between the staff at the Rodeo News. The judging was difficult, but in the end, both of the recipes below won. “One is a bread and the other is more of a desert.” We’d love to hear your opinion of the two recipes listed as well as any other ideas you have for the use of that wonderfully abundant summer squash.

Classic Zucchini Bread
recipe by Siri Stevens
1 c oil
2 c sugar
2 ½ c grated, peeled zucchini
3 tsp. vanilla
3 c flour
1 tsp soda
1 tsp baking powder
3 tsp. cinnamon
Put all ingredients, one at a time, in mixer and blend after each addition. Place dough in two greased bread pans and bake at 325 for one hour. Tips: take the bread out even if the middle is not completely done – it will continue to cook. Once you place the dough in the pan, gently tap the pan on the counter to remove air bubbles. You can freeze the grated zucchini with one cup sugar for baking in the cold winter months.
