Ingredients

Preparation

  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Line a 23 X 13-cm (9 X 5-inch) loaf pan with parchment paper, letting the paper hang over two sides. Butter the other two sides.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, combine the brown sugar with the oil and eggs with a whisk until well incorporated. Stir in the zucchini and dry ingredients. Add the dates and nuts.
  4. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Let cool. Remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack.

Note

To bake into muffins: Divide the batter into 16 muffin cups lined with paper or silicone liners. Bake for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Comments

  1. Delicious, used spelt flour and a dash of cinnamon and vanilla and less sugar of course. Used ground flax and H2O as egg sub. Just sprayed glass loaf pan. Took about 50 mins with oven on and left in another 10 with oven off. Definite winner!

  2. Took much longer to cook properly

  3. This recipe was amazing. I also added cinnamon and some vanilla bean based on prior comments. The bread was very moist and the dates added a great flavour. This is my new go to recipe for zucchini bread.

  4. Excellent recipe; however, i cut back on the sugar with only 1 cup. Also, I added cinnamon and nutmeg in the second batch I made.

  5. Ate a piece while it was still very warm. Thought it could use a dash of cinnamon.

  6. Mind blowing. The zucchini is not detectable once the bread is cooked. Everything is subtle yet together the softness of it, more moist than a banana loaf, and the taste is just amazing. My friend told me about this recipe and, sceptic at first, I do not regret making this baby. I recommend it for everyone, especially the sceptics!
