    Since we moved we have not been able to find our zucchini bread recipe. Does anyone have a good one we could use? We plan on making gift in a jars and breads for Christmas presents this year and we have a whole freezer full of zucchini to use.

    I can't believe no one has posted a zucchini bread recipe. There are lots of good ones on the internet. I basically use my banana bread recipe and switch out the 2 cups zucchini for the banana and add cinnamon or other spices. If you check in the canning section there was a recipe for zucchini bread in a jar, or do a search here on BYC it should come up.

    I found the zucchini bread in a jar. It is post 1720 in the what are you canning now section. Maybe this will help you too.

    I don't know how I missed this thread either. I use this one:

    Zucchini Bread

    3 c. all purpose flour 1 c. veg. oil
    1 tsp salt 2 1/4 c. white sugar
    1 tsp baking soda 3 tsp vanilla extract
    1 tsp baking powder 2 c. grated zucchini
    3 tsp. ground cinnamon 1 c. chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
    3 eggs

    1. Grease and flour two 8x4 pans or 6 min loaf pans. Preheat oven to 325 F.

    2. Sift flour, salt, baking powder, soda, and cinnamon together in a bowl.

    3. Beat eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar together in a large bowl. Add sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture, and beat well. Stir in zucchini and nuts until combined. Pour batter into prepared pans.

    4. Bake for 40-60 minutes (30 min for mini loaves), or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on rack for 15 minutes. Remove and enjoy!!!
