Mini Sourdough Zucchini Nut Bread
Sourdough Zucchini Nut Bread
Mini Loaf Pan
For Christmas this year, my daughter-in-law Kim gave me this handy dandy pan by Wilton The pan is an advance 4-cavity Mini Loaf Pan. Each cavity measures 5.75 W x 3″L x 2.125″ D. That means you can make 4 loaves of mini sourdough zucchini bread at once. The small loaves are perfect for holiday gift giving or you can enjoy one loaf of bread and freeze the rest for later. That way you’ll always have a few loaves of bread stored in the freezer for when unexpected guests stop by or you just want a slice of quick bread, which ever comes first.

This is pretty similar to the way I make my alfredo, and it’s probably my favorite dinner that I have ever posted! I haven’t done it without scraping the cooked squash though–I will definitely have to give it a try!
Awesome! Thanks for stopping, Lynn
Hi! Can you clarify what “fed” means – are you just refreshing it and using it or letting the starter fully rise and ripen before using? Thanksb
All the recipes here on Turnips 2 Tangerines are made using an active or fed sourdough starter, unless otherwise stated. Lynn
You don’t say if the starter is fed or up Fed???????
I do believe I emailed you:) All sourdough recipes on Turnips 2 Tangerines use a “ Fed” starter unless the recipe specified differently:) Lynn
34 grams is a LOT of sugar. I cut it in half and the bread was plenty sweet. Next time I’ll cut it even more!
Yes it is Linda,
I try to always add a comment that the nutritional numbers may not be correct. Google analytics requires to add it to recipes but I don’t feel that we should without some kind of recipe Note. Lynn
This is the best zucchini bread recipe out there. I’ve tried lots of them and this is by FAR the best!
Thanks so much:) It’s by far our favorite too. Have a super day. Lynn
How do you make this in a regular size loaf pan? Baking time ? Oven temperature?
It would be 350° for 50-60 min in a regular sized 9″ by 5″ loaf pan. I’d like to try in a regular loaf pan as well.
Usually any quick bread recipe can be made in different size pans. Baking time will vary of course but the toothpick test will determine when the bread is done. Lynn
