Bread Machine Zucchini Bread – A Deliciously Sweet and Savory Treat
Bread machine zucchini bread is an amazing treat. It has the sweetness of a cinnamon-spiked loaf with the subtle flavor of fresh zucchini. It’s perfect for breakfast, a snack, dessert, or anytime you need a delicious pick-me-up. Plus, it’s made with the convenience of a bread machine, which takes all the guesswork out of the process!
What You’ll Need:
– 1 cup sugar
– 1/4 cup butter, at room temperature
– 2 eggs
– 1 cup grated zucchini
– 1 tablespoon vanilla
– 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 1 teaspoon baking soda
– 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– ½ teaspoon salt
– Walnuts, chopped (optional)
How To Make It:
1. Start by preheating your oven to 350°F and setting your bread machine to the dough setting.
2. Next, cream together the sugar and butter until they’re fluffy.
3. Then, add the eggs, zucchini, and vanilla and mix until blended.
4. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a separate bowl and then add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
5. If desired, stir in walnuts for a bit of crunch.
6. When the dough is ready, shape it into a loaf and place it in a greased 9×5 loaf pan.
7. Bake in the preheated oven for 55 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf should come out clean when it’s done.
8. Let the bread cool for about 10 minutes and then serve warm. Enjoy!
Final note –
This bread machine zucchini bread takes only a few minutes of prep time, so it’s perfect for busy weekdays! Plus, you can adjust the sweetness by adding or reducing the amount of sugar, depending on your preference. And you can easily make this bread vegan by using a vegan butter substitute and omitting the eggs.
