Aunt Teri’s Zucchini Bread

Every year for Christmas my Aunt Teri makes this awesome zucchini bread, I literally look forward to it every Christmas. So this year, I decided to share her awesome recipe with all of you and of course make a couple loaves of this yumminess for myself and my co-workers. This zucchini bread is über moist, just the way I like it!

I used a food processor to shred my zucchinis but you could also use a cheese grater or some other creative method!

It’ll look something like this once its all shredded.

Now add all the other ingredients.

Mix it all up. I did this by hand but you can use a mixer if you have one. Don’t forget to add the pecans!

Now pour the mixture into a well greased bread pan and bake at 325 degrees for about 50min or until it passes the toothpick test.

Let cool for about 5min then use a knife to loosen it up around the edges of the pan. Wait a few more minutes to remove from bread pan. It’s a moist bread so it needs to sit a little longer so it doesn’t fall apart.

Slice and enjoy! This will keep for a few days tightly wrapped up.

    Everytime I look at that picture, I want to make a batch. I usually make 4 smaller loaves and put the remainder in a regular loaf pan or muffin tins. Because it’s a somewhat heavy batter, I try not to fill more than half. Love, Aunt Teri
