Recipe from Burned (a Beauty of the Dark novel, book two) | | Zucchini Bread

I decided I wanted to share recipes more often on my blog. My mom and I were making Zucchini Bread the other day and I said, "Oh, Aunt Abby made Zucchini Bread!" (Aunt Abby is Kiara's aunt from my Beauty of the Dark trilogy.) Kiara walks into the kitchen to find Aunt Abby making batter for Zucchini Bread. I thought it'd be fun to share a couple of recipes here. :) Recipes are an amalgamation and combination of other recipes my mom and I have used.


3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 1/4 cups white sugar
2 cups grated zucchini 

  1. Grease and flour two 8 x 4 inch pans. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). 
  2. Sift together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a bowl. 
  3. Beat eggs, oil, and sugar in a large bowl. Add sifted ingredients, and beat well. Stir in zucchini and until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pans. 
  4. Bake 40-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan  for 20 minutes. Remove bread from pan, and let cool completely before serving.   

With Greek Yogurt:

1 cup Canola or Vegetable Oil
6 oz. Greek Yogurt (plain or vanilla)
3 eggs
2 cups sugar
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups grated Zucchini

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat two 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" bread pans with baking spray.
  2. Cream oil, Greek Yogurt, and sugar in a large bowl. When combined, add in the eggs one at a time, beating well each time.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir well.
  4. Add dry ingredients into wet (in batches seems to work best) and mix until combined. Add in zucchini and stir well but gently. Divide the mixed batter between the two bread pans. 
  5. Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. 
  6. Cool for about 10-20 minutes before removing from the pan. Then place on a rack to let cool before serving.
