Butterscotch Zucchini Bread, oh baby!

Filed under: In the Kitchen — candid reflections @ 2:23 pm

We’ve been harvesting some monstrous zucchini from our garden this year!   Thus, we’ve been eating lots and lots of this scrumptious bread.


 As potato salad is to summer, so Butterscotch Zucchini Bread is to autumn.  

As sure as the turning of the leaves on the trees every autumn, so shall the pages in my recipe book turn… to this delightful concoction:

Butterscotch Zucchini Bread
As found at

   3 eggs
   1 cup oil
   2 teaspoons vanilla
   2 cups sugar
   2 cups grated zucchini
   2 cups flour
   1 teaspoon baking soda
   1 teaspoon salt
   1 teaspoon cinnamon
   ½ teaspoon ginger
   ½ teaspoon nutmeg
   ¼ teaspoon baking powder
   ½ cup rolled oats
   1 package (3.4 oz) butterscotch *instant pudding mix            (*amended later to add instant)

   Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.  In separate bowl, mix wet ingredients.
   Stir both mixtures together and then pour into 2 greased and floured bread pans (8×4)
   Bake at 350 for about one hour.

If you haven’t had a slice for yourself, you don’t know what you’re missing!


  1. I’m making this tonight! Too bad I had to settle for store bought zucchini!

  7. Michelle, the weather here has been amazing. The days have been breezy and warm (around 70) and the evenings have been cool and breezy too (around 50.) The leaves are starting to change. It’s just beautiful!

    P.S. I just made another batch of the bread! 🙂
