Delicious Savory Zucchini Bread (Vegan)

I grew up eating sweet zucchini breads and muffins, but never anything savory coming from the zucchini-infused bread basket. When dear Mihl of Seitan Is My Motor blogged her Savory Zucchini Bread recipe, I couldn’t wait for our heat-wave to break – I just had to try it! Mihl’s got the most delicious recipes on her blog, if you’ve never been you really ought to pay her a visit.

Zucchini Bread (Vegan)

Please don’t blame Mihl’s delicious (and super-easy to follow) recipe for the unsightly nature of this fabulous loaf. If it must be someone’s fault, it’s mine. Well, mine and Mother Nature’s who blessed us with extremely warm temperatures very early in the day.

Thinking I could “beat the heat” I mixed my dough early and let it rise while we prepared for the day. The second rise isn’t very long, and since I only had a few errands to run I thought we’d be safe…well… (if you’ve ever watched the television show I Love Lucy just imagine her saying “well…”) the errands ended up taking longer than planned (bien sûr) and the heat shot up faster than I’d planned, and we returned home to two very over-risen loaves.

Sigh.

But really, who cares? So it’s not as beautiful as I’d hoped (Guppy asked me if I could make it look like an escargot and I said pourquoi pas?). It does look like an escargot, one that had been crushed, perhaps? The important thing is the taste, and it was voted delicious by 3 out of 3 Fish (myself, Guppy and Monsieur). I was going to freeze one of the loaves, but I didn’t even have a chance, Monsieur F. digging into it, topping thick slices with the Raw Ranch Dressing I’d made. That’s ok. Just an excuse to go make more!

I’ll be submitting this lovely loaf to Yeast Spotting, your weekly dose of home-baked goodness over at Wild Yeast (thanks as usual, Susan!).

  1. mm.. I was just thinking the cashew “cheeze” I have in the fridge would be just the thing for this!!! Yumm….

  2. i love the look of the loaf, Shelly – it’s much better than some drop biscuits i attempted to make a few weeks ago – they were pretty darn (dare i say it) uglyfaced. ahahhahahahaa! i totally thought your loaf looked snail-like – hooray! Mihl’s recipes rock socks, and i’m gonna see if i can make this one gluten-free. i’ve never had a savory zucchini bread & i can’t wait to try it!

  3. i saw her post and was thinking how much i’ve missed zucchini bread in the past couple years. and who cares what it looks like – if it tastes good, beauty is only skin deep. :)

  4. Savory zucchini bread is new to me too, and I just know it must be delicious! The idea of using zucchini purée is brilliant.
    By the way, between this and the other one of Mihl’s recipes (the plum cake) you’ve retweeted today, I had to add one more blog to my reader! Thanks for the great recommendation!

  5. I don’t think it is ugly! One can clearly see that this bread was made during hot weather and it looks special. I am so, so glad you liked this bread.

  6. mmm yummy. gotta be honest, i love the look of it. it’s different and shows that it’s homemade (which makes it look 10 times tastier in my books).
    and lots of huggles from the geekling and i.
