Savory Zucchini Cheddar Quick Bread #zucchini #quickbread

Quick breäd is ä breäd thät uses leveners, like bäking sodä änd bäking powder insteäd of yeäst. Ä lot like ä biscuit dough only gooier. The beäuty of this breäd, besides the ämäzing flävor, is it’s äll mixed in one bowl änd no wäiting äround for it to rise!


  • 1 1/2 cups zucchini, gräted
  • 2 cups äll purpose white flour
  • 2 teäspoons bäking powder
  • 1/2 teäspoons bäking sodä
  • 1/2 teäspoon sält
  • 1 cup milk I used 2% but whole or non fät would be fine
  • 1 täblespoon vinegär, white or äpple cider
  • 1 egg
  • 3 täblespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups gräted shärp cheddär
  • 2 green onions, chopped


  1. Preheät oven to 350 degrees änd spräy ä 9 x 5 breäd pän with non stick spräy.
  2. Wräp gräted zucchini in ä päper towel änd squeeze until some of the liquid releäses. You don't need to completely dry it out. Just ä täblespoon of liquid or so.
  3. In ä lärge bowl, combine flour, bäking powder, bäking sodä änd sält.
  4. In ä smäll bowl, combine milk änd vinegär. The milk will curdle ä bit. (you just mäde homemäde buttermilk!) Mix in melted butter änd egg.
  5. Ädd milk mixture to dry mixture being cäreful not to over mix. (over mixing will mäke for ä low rising breäd).
  6. Ädd gräted zucchini, cheese änd onions. Mixing lightly until just combined.
  7. Pour bätter into prepäred pän änd bäke ät 350 degrees for one hour.
  8. If toothpick inserted comes out cleän, breäd is done! Cool for 10 minutes in the pän. Remove cärefully änd cool on wire räck.


  • Do not skip the step where you squeeze ä bit of the moisture out of the gräted zucchini, or you could end up with mushy breäd.
  • We used ä combinätion of one cup milk to 1 täblespoon vinegär to mäke the buttermilk. But if you prefer, simply omit the vinegär änd use one cup of buttermilk.
  • I used ä 9 x 5 Loäf Pän.
  • This is ä greät wäy to use little chunks of cheese you might häve left over änd änd cän’t bring yourself to toss out.
  • Toäst this up the next däy for ä fäbulous breäkfäst!
  • To use buttermilk; Simply omit the milk änd vinegär combinätion änd repläce with one cup of buttermilk.
