Zuccran Bread Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp grated nutmeg
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup vegetable oil (OR 1 stick unsalted butter)
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup plain/Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini (this is approximately 1 medium zucchini)
    • The consistency should be similar to mashed bananas to ensure that the bread is moist enough

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Lightly grease a pan.
  2. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and dried cranberries in a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs well. Then, add the vegetable oil, yogurt, and vanilla extract. After mixing well, add in the shredded zucchini and stir well.
  4. Gradually add the dry (flour) mixture into the wet (zucchini) mixture.
  5. Pour batter into the greased pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the center to ensure the bread has fully baked.
  6. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.

If you want to add a sweeter touch to the bread, look no further than this lemon glaze! The combination of the lemon juice, zucchini, pistachios, and cranberries creates a variety of flavor and texture. If pistachios aren’t your style, use walnuts or almonds!

Lemon Glaze Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice (OR lime juice)
  • 1 tsp milk of choice
  • ¼ cup pistachios, chopped & without shells

Directions

  1. Combine powdered sugar, lemon juice, and milk.
  2. Pour the glaze over the cooled bread, add pistachios on top, and let it sit for 5-10 minutes before serving.
