I found this recipe at TrulySimple.com. The title caught my eye–THE Best Zucchini Bread Ever. Then I was double intrigued when I saw it was made in a blender. I have a new high powered blender, my precious Vitamix, and any chance I get to use it makes me a happy lady. Using a blender makes this recipe a breeze to make. It is also a simple recipe, no grating zucchini, no half teaspoons or tablespoons, and it turns out great every time. I’ve made it twice in the past week, which made my family very, very happy. It really IS the best zucchini bread ever!
Blend until your mixture is green and the zucchini peel is chopped up into little bits.
Just one teaspoon of each.
Add egg. Blend.
Add cinnamon & vanilla — a tablespoon each.
Add 3 1/2 cups of flour to a bowl. I use whole wheat pastry flour. Add 1 1/2 cups of sugar. Yeah…that’s a lot of sugar, but the original recipe called for 2 cups, so could be worse. The fiber in the whole wheat flour and in the zucchini will help keep blood sugar from spiking from all that sugar!
Use a whisk and blend flour & sugar.
If you have a powerful, large blender, add the flour mixture right into the blender, about a cup at a time. If you do not have a high speed blender, then pour mixture into the flour/sugar mixture bowl and mix.
Pour into greased pan. Can use a bunt cake pan, 2 bread pans, 4 mini pans +1 regular size pan, or pour into muffin cups and make zucchini muffins. You choose!
I did 4 mini’s and one regular size loaf pans.
This recipe smells SO good, is SO moist, and makes everyone happy. My kids and their friends loved it as an after school snack.
I will not use another recipe. This is THE one. It is so, so good! Enjoy!
The Best Ever Zucchini Blender Bread
1 cup vegetable oil (I use coconut oil)
enough chopped zucchini to blend to 3 cups
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour or white flour
Optional add-ins: mini-chocolate chips, chopped nuts, raisins, craisins.
Add oil to blender. Add enough chopped zucchini to equal 3 cups when blended. Use the measure lines on your blender. Add salt, baking powder & baking soda. Add egg. Blend. Add vanilla and cinnamon. Blend. In a bowl, whisk the flour and sugar until blended. Add the blender mix and mix well, OR if your blender is large and high powered, just add the flour/sugar mixture into the blender a cup at a time and blend until well combined.
PS..the second time I made it I didn’t have quite enough zucchini to make it to 3 cups, so I threw a few peeled carrots into the blender, enough to make it to the 3 cup line. It was really good, and added even more sweetness!
Bake at 350 degrees, 45-50 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
