Zucchini Bread recipe

zucchini bread After baking the buns last time, I was a little disappointed because of the crust. And somehow I could not gather courage to play with the yeast again. I had bought a zucchini almost a week ago. This was the first time I bought it as it is not so common here and I was browsing for a recipe. I came upon this Shilpa's(aayis recipes) zucchini bread and I was tempted to try this. Indeed, bread baking is certainly addictive. So I went ahead with the recipe and it came out really good this time.It tasted delicious and was quite soft too. I just made minor changes to the recipe.

Ingredients-
Plain flour- 1cup
wheat flour- 1cup
Zucchini - 1 cup grated
ginger - 1tsp grated
instant dry yeast- 1 envelope
Sugar- 1tsp
salt- 1/2tsp
egg-1
Vegetable oil to grease a vessel

Method-
Heat a little water. It should be lukewarm. Add yeast, sugar and salt and leave for 10 minutes for frothing. Meanwhile combine rest of the ingredients. Add the yeast mixture and knead into a smooth dough. Use more water or flour if necessary. Grease a big vessel with oil and keep the dough for rising for 2 hours. Then press the dough and knead again and then keep in a oven proof dish giving the dough a desired shape. Let it rise for another 30 minutes. I sprinkled some sesame seeds on it. Its purely optional.
Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes or till baked.
zucchini bread Navarathri starts today, so wishing you all a very "Happy navrathri. " Hoping to post navratri sundals and other prasadams for the next few days. Next 10 days will be quite busy for me. I have a get together at home too. So no baking and time consuming recipes. So do have a great time and enjoy yourselves and keep visiting for simple yummy recipes.

Hi Sowmya,

Your zucchini bread recipe looks yummy and its tempting me to try!

I have been very curious about zucchini and ways to use it in our cooking. So I tried out a simple bhaji/curry with it. It came out really well. Here’s the link to it. My Scrawls

Do take a look when you find time… Your comments are much appreciated :-)
