Zucchini Nut Prune Bread

It’s zucchini time again. Time to dust off all of those zucchini recipes you’ve been saving all year long. The recipes you’ve been waiting to try when zucchini was in full swing. It never seems to matter how many recipes that you’ve saved, it’s never enough to use up all the zucchini you have growing in your garden. This year try this yummy zucchini bread with the addition of prunes or dried plums and chopped walnuts. Zucchini Nut Prune Bread might be the only recipe you’ll need.

In This Recipe

In this recipe, the addition of chopped prunes lends a wonderful, earthy flavor to this already delicious bread. I like to make this bread, cool it completely, wrap it in plastic wrap, store it in the refrigerator overnight. The flavors of the bread come together beautifully overnight. The next morning, slice and serve bread with butter and honey. If you have never tried prunes and honey together, you don’t know what your missing. Prunes and honey are made for each other. Seriously! Give it a try.

Has It All

This delicious bread has it all; garden fresh shredded zucchini, chopped walnuts, diced dried plums or prunes, fresh grated lemon zest and a for added flavor and moisture, prune juice. For this recipe we used Sunsweet Prunes. Change the recipe slightly by replacing the prune juice called for in the recipe and add prune purée instead.

Prune Baby Food?

Prune puree, which can be found in jars in most supermarkets or specialty food stores. Another option is to use prune baby food. Hey, don’t laugh, prune baby food is a great option if you want to sneak prunes into your baked goods. Prune puree is a fantastic fat substitute. In baked goods, prune puree or baby food can be used in place of butter or other fat. Therefore, reducing the cholesterol and calories in the recipe. Just as applesauce can be used as a fat substitute, to add moisture and flavor, so can prune puree.
