A friend of ours gave us a bunch of Zucchini's from her garden recently. Didn't want them to go to waste so I decided to make this old family recipe for a Delightful Walnut Raisin Zucchini Loaf.
I am not the biggest fan of Zucchini, not sure why though. It's not like they have a strong flavor or anything. Maybe something happened as a kid… Regardless of my issues, this Zucchini Loaf is really good.
Since this recipe yields 2 good-sized loaves, I usually make one without walnuts and raisins. This not only give your guests options, but it's also convenient if one of your guests has a nut allergy or doesn't like raisins.
🥜 Nut Allergies
This recipe may contain peanuts or other nuts and seeds as one of its ingredients. Please take the appropriate precautions.
💭 Recipe Tip
Don't you hate it when raisins get stuck together in a big clump? To unstick the raisins, wet your hands with a little water then work the raisins apart.
