Zucchini the size of my arm .. We Make Bread!

Cole's best friend's mom brought me over a zucchini the size of my arm to make treats with. It was so large I was able to make 3 different treats to share!


The first recipe I started with was a bread, I found a recipe on Sally's Baking Addiction for Award Winning Zucchini Bread. I stuck to my diet and didn't eat any but I heard it was tasty. I love it had a crumble topping, which is my favorite thing on bread!  Enjoy!!

The best that started it all!

Ingredients:

BROWN SUGAR OAT STREUSEL

  • 2/3 cups old-fashioned or quick oats
  • 1/2 cup packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cold
  • optional: 1 Tablespoon semi-sweet chocolate chips

ZUCCHINI BREAD & MUFFINS

  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup grated zucchini (about 1 large)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (careful not to overmeasure)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • optional: 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or use pecans or walnuts)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9x5 (or 8x4) loaf pan with nonstick spray. If making muffins, preheat oven to 425F degrees and spray a 12-count pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. Make the streusel first by combining the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and flour together in a medium bowl. Cut in the cold butter with two knives or a pasty cutter (preferred) - or you may use your hands. Mix until the streusel resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the chocolate chips with a spoon. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the beaten egg, brown sugar, granulated sugar, oil, zucchini, and vanilla until evenly combined. In a large bowl, toss the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and chocolate chips together. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix with a large wooden spoon or rubber spatula until combined. Avoid overmixing.
  4. Spread batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake the bread for 20 minutes at 350F degrees. Remove from the oven and top with the streusel - press it down into the top. The reason you are adding it after 20 minutes is to prevent it from sinking to the bottom of the bread as it bakes. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. I covered the bread loosely with aluminum foil after 35 total minutes to avoid the top from getting too brown. Allow bread to cool in the pan set on a wire rack for at least 1 hour before removing from the pan and serving.
