The Best Ever Savory Zucchini Bread

Here’s a recipe for those who want a bread but not a sweet one (and are still using zucchini…)

Beer, Cheese, and Zucchini Bread

  • 2 cups white flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 Tbs sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 bottle of beer
  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 cup packed grated cheese (use something flavorful like smoked provolone or sharp cheddar)
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed or minced
  • 2 tsp black pepper

Mix together the first 5 ingredients in a bowl.  Make a well in the middle then add in everything else.  Mix well, scraping to make sure all the flour gets mixed in.  Put in a well-greased Bundt pan or two well-greased bread pans.  Bake at 375 30-55 minutes – check with a knife inserted in the middle.  Cool, remove from pans, cool a little more before slicing.  Yum.  You can make the following variations:  add 1/2 cup corn kernels, use pepper jack, add 1 small can chopped green chiles; use parmesan cheese, add 1 tsp dried oregano, and 1 tsp dried basil;  use 1 1/ cups zucchini and 1/2 cup grated tart apple and use Swiss cheese; use half grated zucchini and half grated carrot; stir in 1/4 cup roasted sunflower seeds or roasted, chopped walnuts or pecans.
