1970s zucchini nut bread recipe
Recipe from the York Daily Record (York, Pennsylvania) July 24, 1976
If you’re a gardener whose plot runneth over with excess zucchini, clip this recipe and count your blessings.
Zucchini is a versatile vegetable that shows up in many non-vegetable ways. This recipe for zucchini nut bread wasn’t created to disguise the vegetable, but to capitalize on the moistness and tender texture provided by this ingredient.
In this zucchini bread recipe, the zucchini and unsulphured molasses both contribute moistness. So this is a cake-like bread that gets better as it ages.
It is delicious warm from the oven, but it stores well in the refrigerator for an extended period. The tiny green flecks of zucchini are almost concealed in the bread.
