Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups grated zucchini (about 2 medium zucchini)
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil, (can use melted and slightly cooled coconut oil)
  • 3/4 cup  packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon turbinado sugar, for sprinkling on bread, optional

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 35o degrees F. Grease a loaf pan (8 x 4 x 2 1/2-inch) with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a clean linen-free kitchen towel or paper towels, squeeze out the excess water in the shredded zucchini. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, oil, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg, and vanilla. Stir until smooth. Stir in the grated zucchini.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Don't over mix.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle turbinado sugar evenly over the batter, if using. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Carefully remove the bread from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.

Notes

The bread will keep on the counter, wrapped in plastic wrap, for up to 3 days. This bread also freezes well. To freeze, cool the bread completely and wrap in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag. Freeze for up to 1 month. Defrost before slicing.
