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!

Serve warm or cooled, it's delicious either way! Enjoy!

****UPDATE****

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!)

    I stumbled upon this recipe while browsing for interesting recipes. Being a lover of zucchini bread, this recipe naturally caught my attention. The first thing that I saw was the photo, the slices, and immediately I began to salivate like one of Pavlov’s dogs.
    This is on my list of delightful treats to cook up this week.
    Sad, though – I’m the guy who can burn a pot of water…
    Thanks for the recipe!

    Wow, I made this for breakfast and it was delicious. I have a similar recipe that calls for buttermilk instead of regular milk. May try using buttermilk and add some shallots next time. It will be hard to improve on this recipe though.

    1. Hi Kelly, I’ve used a 9 inch metal loaf pan. You can also use a glass pan if that’s what you have. If you have a small pan and end up with batter left over, make some muffins with the extra!
      Hope that helps!

  3. Hey there. This bread looks amazing. I was wondering if you think I can substitute the regular flour for an almond flour to make it Palme friendly?

    1. Hi there, I haven’t tried using almond flour in this recipe so I can’t say how it will turn out. If you do try it please come back and let us know so we know for anyone else who might like to try that option too!

  4. I made this today and added chives and capsicum which came out better than expected. Great toasted for breakfast or sliced advocado and tomato on top for light lunch. Great loaf.

  5. I made these as muffins and they turned out great – light, moist and tasty. I baked them for 30 minutes and that was perfect. Thanks for posting this. I’m always looking for ways to use zucchini!

  6. I added 1 T of Dijon mustard, used GF all purpose flour, cooked in muffin cups, and this was AMAZING! My zucchini haters loved it! Thanks!!

      P.S. oh yes my children hate zucchini too and refuse to eat it, they did not notice it in the muffins or loaf. Being finely grated they didnt notice yippeeee.. also to clarify another comment I used 1 cup of finely grated zucchini.

    1. Hi Dot, the ingredient dodnt transfer from the top of the page to the recipe card exactly so I’ve corrected it. It should be 1 cup which equates to about half a zucchini.
      Sorry for the confusion!

  7. Absolutely terrible recipe. I baked it 1 hr 30 min & it still was gooey. The outside was brown & crusty & hard & the inside was gooey & gross. Couldn’t eat this mess.

      This is such a wonderful recipe! I made just a few tweaks: I used 1/2 cup of cornmeal and 1 cup of flour. I also added Chopped Jalapeños & Bell Peppers. So yummy, thank you for sharing ❤️
