1 1/2 c. zucchini, grated

2 c. all-purpose white flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 c. milk I used 2% but whole or non-fat would be fine

1 tbsp vinegar, white or apple cider

1 Egg

3 tbsp butter, melted

1 1/2 c. grated sharp cheddar

2 green onions, chopped

How to make Savory Zucchini Cheddar Quick Bread

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees. And using a nonstick spray, grease a 9 x 5-inch bread pan.


Step 2: In a paper towel, wrap the grated zucchini and squeeze until most of the liquid is released to get a tbsp or so liquid.

Step 3: Place the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well until combined.

Step 4: Whisk the milk and vinegar in a small bowl. Add the melted butter and egg. Mix well until combined.

Step 5: To the dry ingredients, add the milk mixture. Mix until just combined, making sure not to over mix. Then, add the grated zucchini, cheese, and onions. Lightly mix until just combined.

Step 6: Into the prepared pan, pour the batter. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about an hour or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the bread comes out clean. Remove from the oven when done and onto a wire rack.


For this recipe, you can also use buttermilk instead of the milk and vinegar mixture.
