Credit Crunch Munch Zucchini Bread Loaf

It was the day before we were about to leave for a work vacation and there were still two zucchinis left. 
I had bought them when they were cheap but had not managed using the whole lot. the loaf for the night was yet to be made. so i thought zucchini bread. but the recipe called for milk. and there was just enough for my son's after dinner sip. so a replacement was required. of course i could use yogurt but other than the flavored ones which the little one has, there was no other in the fridge. so i decided to use the peach flavored one, the one he likes the least, and to overcome the peachy flavor i added half a  onions, some ginger and herbs to the dough. the result. well it was quite a loaf. we enjoyed it that night with our soup and took the left overs with us for the way. so everything fitted just right and i was a happy mother/wife :) 

here's the recipe i used. i adapted from...
Beth Hensperger's Zucchini Bread recipe from The Bread Lover's Bread Machine Cookbook.

Zucchini Bread (1 1/2 pound loaf)


  1. 1 Yoplait light, peach flavor, 6oz pack.
  2. 1 1/2 medium sized zucchini, shredded
  3. 2 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  4. 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  5. 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  6. 1 tbsp honey
  7. 1 tbsp orange juice
  8. 1 1/2 tsps sea salt
  9. 2 1/2 tsps bread machine yeast
  10. 1/2 medium sized onion, finely chopped and lightly sauteed
  11. 3/4 inch ginger, grated
  12. 1 tsp chives
  13. 1 tsp oregano
  14. 1/2 tsp thyme 

what is did
i made the loaf in the bread-machine so there really wasn't much for me to do. i simply added the first 9 ingredients, that is everything other than onions, ginger and herbs in the bread-machine pan, set the crust for medium and programmed the machine for a Basic cycle. and when the machine beeped for the second knead i added the remaining ingredients to the pan and let the cycle complete. when the baking cycle ended, i immediately removed the loaf from the pan and placed it on a rack to cool completely before i sliced it for dinner...

note: i used lightly sauteed onions because i had some ready in the pan. i guess it is fine even if you decided to add raw onions to the dough.

I am entering this dish into Credit Crunch Munch as I made this loaf using zucchinis that were really cheap and leftovers (onions and ginger) lying on my kitchen counter. Credit Crunch Munch is  a frugal monthly event started by Helen of Fuss Free Flavours and jointly hosted by Camilla at Fab Food  4 All. This month Janice of Farmersgirl Kitchen is hosting the event.

  1. Bread looks fabulous.. Been long since I baked one.. really tempted now.. :)

  2. This is great! Proof that you can improvise with whatever you have and still make delicious food. The addition of peach yoghurt is most interesting and has made me smile. Thanks for entering Herbs On Saturday. x
