Zucchini Milk and Zucchini Bread

It’s so easy to keep the commandment, “Love Thy Neighbor”, this time of year.  Mine are sick to death of zucchini recipes and have stopped picking it. It gets huge and they just want to get rid of it!

I gladly take it off their hands…sinks full of it…

wash it…cut it up…and fire up my steamer…

toss it in my blender or food processor..whirl…

measure 2 cup portionsof lovely zucchini milk…

and freeze in quart freezer bags…freeze flat and then put several in a gallon freezer bag.

Through out the year I enjoy baking the most Fantastic Zucchini Bread that I love to share with my wonderful neighbors.

Gather all the ingredients together and add it to a mixing bowl…except the nuts…

Mix well…and then stir in the nuts..I used toasted walnuts…

Pour batter into 2-8″ loaf pans that have been sprayed with non-stick spray.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour.  Cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes and then remove bread from the pans.

Now it’s ready to wrap and deliver to friends and neighbors…giving lots of love back to generous zucchini donors!  It feels so good cause they love it….

Be sure to slice up a little and add some soft butter.  My guy loves to toast his too! 

Fantastic Zucchini Bread

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups zucchini, cooked and blended
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped and toasted

Mix all ingredients well.  Pour into 2-8″ greased and floured loaf pans.  Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

Variation:  for Chocolate Zucchini Bread, omit 3 tsp. cinnamon.  Add 2 Tbsp. cocoa and 2 squares of unsweetened chocolate, melted.  Bake for 50 minutes and cool on rack before cutting.

Ah-ha:  You can use the Zucchini Milk just like applesauce in cake, bread and muffin recipes.

Enjoy sharing the love…all!

    I’ve never seen zucchini like this! How great is that for breads or cakes or whatever all year long. I love zucchini bread!

  2. Cath

    Zucchini milk!! How wonderful! Now I know what to do with the overflow zucchini my neighbors share with me. 🙂

    Hey Nee, made the zucchini casserole you posted here last night for dinner and just added a little ham. Tanner loved it! I have been ditching the huge ones, but this is a great way to still use them and have them through the winter. I always use the raw shreds in bread, but I really like this better.
    I’m so glad you are keeping *your guy* happpy…Love it!

  6. Always Nesting

    You are a wealth of information. I love the zucchini milk and what a great way to enjoy the bounty all year long.

  7. Kristin

    You are so lucky! It is so hard to find good looking zucchini at my local grocery stores they are always beat up and abused. You really do have a lot of ways of using a zucchini.

    This is wonderful! I don’t even grow my own zucchine, and I still get it coming out of my ears. I love this, and what a great way to be one step ahead on baking. I had never heard of doing this.

    Seriously, this is one of your best posts ever. Considering how many of your recipes I have tried and loved, that is really saying something!

    BTW… the crown still belongs to “Just Peachy” until further notice. That salad is a family favorite.

    I love the idea of chocolate zucchini bread – actually anything chocolate……


  10. Julie Harward

    I have never used liquid zuc. before, only grated…this is cool…love it! 😀

    Gosh, I took a raw and living foods class yet I never stopped to consider making zucchini milk. It makes great sense. All this green goodness.

    Thank you, thank you,

    Oh so yummy! I love Zucchini bread! Now a have a fabulous new recipe. Thanks for linking up to Hoo’s got talent!

  13. Donna@Conghaile Cottage

    “I LOVE this idea”, I always did the same thing but always had added onion and used it as a delicious cream soup(WITHOUT CREAM of course). What a fabulous idea to keep it plain and use it in “Zucchini Bread”!!! OH My GOSH you made my day, and I AM making this bread, YUMMY!!!
    Hugs, Donna

    What a clever idea for those who have too much zucchini! I know, I am probably the only person in the world who can’t grow a lot of zucchini. I had 3 on my plant this year and the rest all withered. If I get any more, I am going to do this.

    The bread with the butter melting on it looks like pure yum.

  15. Brianna!

    absolutely any kind of bread!

  16. Erin@likegrandmas

    Started a diet today, but my reward will be to eat something I really want on Saturdays(not this one, but next). I am saving up to eat the lemon blueberry bundt cake 🙂 I love zucchini bread, especially with some butter, I’ll get there eventually:)

  17. Allison Shops

    Gosh that looks good!

    A beautiful zucchini bread…it is hard to keep friends this time of year, lol. I’ve have frozen lots of grated zuchinni but I plan to make some *milk*, lol.


  19. Christy

    wow..i never thought to make it into a “milk” i shred mine. what a great idea..i am definitely going to have to “borrow” that idea!

  20. Tricia Rose

    You certainly improve on the basic zucchini! I think your neighbours must love you right back!

  21. Sandy J

    This is awesome. I usually grate my zucchini and freeze it for making zucchini bread through out the year, but I like this recipe. I imagine using the zucchini milk makes it moist.

    Thanks for sharing.

  22. Jerri

    Your bread looks wonderful! Isn’t it great to have such nice neighbors?

    Thanks for linking up with for Friday Favorites!
