Homemade Pineapple Zucchini Bread September 27, 2009


Our sweet neighbor is a gardening extraordinaire! She had zucchini pouring out of her ears and was sweet enough to share some with us! Thanks Donna! After reading through some blogs, I was fortunate enough to stuble across a recipe posted by Jen at 11th Heaven’s Homemaking Haven for zucchini bread. It looked absolutely delish so we decided to give it a try it! We had to drop a few ingredients due to not having them on hand, but this is a yummy way to use up some extra zucchini!

Pineapple Zucchini Bread


2 C. all-purpose flour
1 C. whole wheat flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
2 C. sugar
3 eggs (farm fresh is best! Thanks Jen!) (vegan alt: 3 T. ground flaxseed + 9 T. water)
1 t. vanilla extract
1 C. oil (we used coconut oil)
2 C. grated zucchini
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained

In a large bowl mix together the dry ingredients (flour, soda, baking powder, sugar, and salt) Add to the flour mix the following wet ingredients (eggs, vanilla, oil and zucchini). Once mixed well, stir in the raisins and pineapple until just blended.


Pour into 2-9x5x3 inch loaf pans.

pour in pans

Bake in a preheated 350 degree F for one hour, or until browned.

***Oh, and most importantly. If you are grating fresh zucchini, don’t, and I do mean DON’T, under any circumstances, let any fall on the floor where you are working or the following scavengers might be found lurking nearby!*** 😉 Of course, I’m a sucker for cute little beady eyes…so I had to share! They love the fresh fruits and veggies, too! 🙂
