Bacon, Cheddar Zucchini Bread, a delicious zucchini, cheesy, bacon no yeast savory loaf. Great for brunches, lunch boxes, parties! Freezer friendly and easy to make. The flavors are simply wonderful! This is delicious served warm from the oven or cooled.
A really simple and easy recipe and very pleasing!
This savory loaf contains No Yeast, think of it more like a cake texture, only savory. This is a moist, soft loaf/pound cake, and incredibly easy to make.
They freeze very well, so always handy if you have unexpected visitors for a light lunch or brunch! As you can see, I've also made these as Bacon and Cheddar Zucchini Bread Muffins.
They are really great to take along to parties, pot lucks, picnics etc. You can also make ahead and freeze. They really are an all-rounder!
For this recipe we've used our basic Zucchini Bread recipe and adapted it to take it to another level.
It's so delicious with the added bacon and cheese and makes for a perfect breakfast, brunch, lunchtime snack or as a side with some chilli or a nice stew.
Whichever way you decide to serve our Bacon, Cheddar, and Zucchini Bread, you won't be disappointed!

Baking Times For Different Pans
*** You can make this in a 9 x 13 in pan, double the recipe and check if cooked through after around 35 - 40 minutes.
You can also use this recipe (same quantity ingredients as the regular loaf) to make 12 muffins, bake at the same temperature for between 30 - 35 minutes.
The photo below was taken by Alison North who baked her muffins to take to a work party!
Cathy Kopp also shares some photos of her bake which she decided to enter in to a competition!
She came 3rd so many congratulations!
Cathy got 3 Mini loaves from the batter, and won a prize for submitting our recipe!
Serve warm or cooled, it's delicious either way! Enjoy!
Following feedback, please note the cook time may be a little longer so please check after the recommended cook time to see if the center of the loaf is cooked through.
If not, just keep it in the oven at the same temperature for a little longer and it will be fine!
If you're worried the top might burn, just cover with a piece of foil for the remaining cook time. (I haven't ever had to do this, but it's always a good tip to know when you are baking!)
