I know you may already have a favorite zucchini bread recipe at your house. Zucchini bread is kind of like banana bread; once you find a winner, why mess with success? But this version – Zucchini Bread with Craisins and Vanilla Bean Glaze – is totally worth a test drive. And since I know you have zucchini to spare this time of year, you can totally afford to experiment a bit.
What makes this zucchini bread so noteworthy? Let’s start with the tangy dried cranberries. They are a bit of an unexpected addition to the bread, but they fit in so well with the warm cinnamon and spicy nutmeg. The shredded zucchini gets some help from Greek yogurt to keep the bread moist while still giving it a nice crumb. But the proverbial “cherry on top” is definitely the pure vanilla bean glaze. It’s just the right amount of sweetness for each bite.
So get baking and let me know what you think. Who knows? You may just discover a new favorite.
