Grandma P's Zucchini Bread

Patricia Reitz

I've tried a lot of zucchini bread recipes over the years, but I always come back to this one.  It's a recipe my mother started making when I was in high school, and I have yet to find one I like better.  It's flavorful and moist, like most zucchini breads, but the top crust of this particular recipe is special - delicately sweet and slightly crunchy.  The recipe makes 2 loaves which is good because the first loaf usually disappears shortly after we start slicing it. 

When shopping for zucchini, I like to get ones that are small to medium in size.  You can definitely use large or even jumbo zucchini, but you may need to scrape out the seeds before grating.

My tips for beautiful bread each and every time - use commercial pans (my favorite) to prevent burning and spray the pans with oil/flour baking spray to prevent sticking (I wouldn't think of baking without this stuff).
