  1. I love zucchini bread! I make mine with half zucchini, and half summer squash. Never thought to put ginger in it though! That’ll have to go in my next batch!

    Can you tell me if you grate the whole zucchini or peel and take seeds out? I have never cooked with zucchini-but your recipes have made me rethink that.

    • Grate them with a standard grater however I do remove the seeds. It is worth the effort to try this recipe, you’ll be shocked how good this really is!! Jason

        I use the entire zucchini, seeds and all (minus the stem) and MP’s recipe is awesome! I have made 12 loaves so far and I gained a giant zucchini in mid autumn. It about to become more yummy and delish bread!

  3. Sounds yummy! Can’t wait to try it. Ginger and Molasses must be the secret to your success!

  4. This sounds like it would be very good. Is it 2 teaspoons of Cinnamon?
