Call me crazy if you want; however, for those of you that think any old oil will do for every and any recipe, absolutely will be amazed at the difference in the quality of your methods using the right oil for the right recipe expectation. Let’s just say, and I was singing some serious praise to the  Butter Gods that day.

 

We have all had our mother’s and grandmother’s zucchini bread over the years and fallen in love with the crazy idea that an actual vegetable had been added to our beloved bread that tasted so delicious and unlike a vegetable afterward; it was terrific.

What are the benefits of eating zucchini?

  1. Zucchini is super low in calories; one cup of sliced zucchini has only 19 calories
  2. It’s believed to be good for your heart; Zucchini has the right amount of potassium: 295 milligrams per cup. According to the American Heart Association, potassium can help control blood pressure because it lessens the harmful effects of salt on your body.
  3. Zucchini is also high in the antioxidant vitamin C, which may help the lining of your blood cells function better, lowering blood pressure and protecting against clogged arteries. One cup of sliced zucchini has 20 milligrams of vitamin C.

How to select the perfect zucchini:

When picking them out at your garden, local store or farmers market, remember these three things, and you’re well on your way to picking the perfect zucchini for your Zucchini Bread recipe:
  • Look for the smaller varieties; larger zucchini will tend to be watery and flavorless, with pulpy insides and large seeds. Smaller is better, so try to find one no larger than a regular-sized flashlight.
  • Zucchini can be green, yellow, or white, but always look for a vibrant, rich green color when picking zucchini for your Zucchini Bread.
  • Look for a green zucchini that still has a good chunk of the stem attached, as they will last longer.
 
I think we are ready to get started with making a Zucchini Bread that comes out moist, delicious, and almost weightless every time!

    Hi- are you peeling the zucchini or leaving the skin on? Thanks! I left the skin on when I made it but wasn’t sure.
