    I am looking for a rec ipe. I would like to make a zucchinni bread made from a quick bread mix such as Nut Bread etc. Does anyone have one that they will be willing to share. I have an abundance of zucchinni coming in the garden.

    Thank You
    The Bag lady

    Yes I have done a research and could not find a recipe. That is why I have gone to the forum.

    Dear East Side,
    I just checked the third recipe down and it is from scratch. I want a recipe where you just add the zucc. to a bread mix. I have trouble standing for long periods of time and I need something is quick.

    If you google "zucchini bread from cake mixes", you'll find lots of references. I found one for you which may fit the bill for you. It's from Recipe Gold Mine and you can find it and others at http://www.recipegoldmine.com/cakemi...ini-bread.html

    Here's the recipe for Zucchini Bread:

    1 (18.25 ounce) box spice cake mix
    3 eggs, beaten
    2 cups grated zucchini (don't drain)

    Mix all ingredients to moisten, then beat 3-4 minutes to blend well. If it seems a little dry, add 1/2 cup applesauce. Divide evenly in 2 greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees F for 55-60 minutes until it tests done with a wooden pick.

    NOTE: If you can't find spice cake mix, use yello cake mix and add 2 1/2 teaspoons apple pie spice mix.

    Hope this works for you. Good luck!

    I grate the zucchinni with a large grater blade and put it in the freezer in premeasured containers for baking the bread etc. I have had some for over a year and it is still good and makes very good bread.

    Good Luck

    It's not from a quick bread mix, but it is the best recipe EVER - From my mama's kitchen. And it IS better with raisins.

    Zucchini Bread

    2 cups sugar 1 cup Wesson oil
    3 eggs 1 teaspoon baking soda
    3 cups flour teaspoon baking powder
    3 teaspoons cinnamon 3 teaspoons vanilla
    1 teaspoon salt cup chopped nuts
    2 cups coarsely grated zucchini

    *Options: use 1 cup of nuts instead of cup, and add 1 cup raisins (recommended)

    With a whisk, mix together flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder and set aside. Beat eggs, sugar, oil, vanilla and cinnamon until smooth. Gradually add flour mixture. (Batter will be thick) Add grated zucchini and mix well, adding nuts and raisins. Fill pans 2/3 full and bake at 350 for 1 hour. Insert knife or toothpick to insure center is done. Yield: 2 loaves

    Thank you so much everyone. This will really help. I have two cookbooks for recipes for things that you can make from cake mixes but there is none for zucchinni bread. I do have a spice cake mix on hand, so I will try this in the next day or so. We have a Community Garden at church because we also help supply food for the food pantry in our area. My zucchinni is in the garden there in my little spot.

    That's too bad. I bet the heat ruined lots of gardens - farm crops, too.

    I know what it's like to have a taste for something and then not be able to have it. I think I'd go to the store!

    Hi Carol,
    One of our church members was just in Pittburgh studying for the Stephens Ministry Program. We are trying to get it started at church. In fact Jims sister lives there and he was staying with her while they learned the program.

    the only thing that has survived in my garden are the tomatoes, so far.

    Hi Ingrid,

    I hope your friend enjoyed his stay in Pittsburgh - it's really a great place, and most of us are very friendly and sincerely welcome newcomers.

    Glad to hear that at least your tomatoes survived the heat. They are not much good for zucchini bread, but they are wonderful with a little mayo and a thin slice of sweet onion between 2 slices of white bread!

    Carol
