Keeping it Classic

There is something so alluring about “the way Mom used to make it.” And that’s just what Jeanie and Lulu’s Kitchen specializes in. You take one look at this ingredient list and you think, “classic.” No funky twists. No health modifications. Just good ol’ classic baking at its best.

You’ve got dark brown sugar for depth. Walnuts for crunch. Cinnamon for spice. And of course Zucchini for that fresh flavor and luxurious moisture. This, my friends, is the beginning of something great.

Baking for Beginners

For this recipe, you’ll need a grater. We’d highly recommend using a box grater for a substantial grate-job like this. It’ll be easier on the arm muscles! A whisk or hand mixer is another tool that will come in handy for this zucchini bread, though a wooden spoon or spatula would also get the job done. Finally, you’ll need a loaf pan to bake in. Definitely don’t forget the important step of greasing the pan so the bread doesn’t stick.

This recipe breaks down an important baking principle: separately mixing your dry ingredients and wet ingredients. This is important to ensure everything is properly mixed so you don’t end up biting into a clump of salt. Baking is one of the more scientific types of cooking, so you also need those reactive ingredients, like baking soda and powder, to be dispersed evenly.

I think you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to achieve this truly delicious bread. It’s a great entry-level baking project, and is wonderful to share with coworkers or classmates. Plus--your home will smell totally incredible. Happy baking!
