Snickerdoodle Zucchini Bread


Snickerdoodle Zucchini Bread!


We would like to apologize to the world for not embracing the whole zucchini bread thing until now. We had no idea that zucchini bread didn’t have to be dry and stringy. After making our Chocolate Chip Banana Zucchini Bread (which is probably the best bread ever and you all obviously agree based on your emails) I told Cade I was ready to be brave and try my hand at real zucchini bread. He wasn’t interested, and neither were the girls until I told them it would be snickerdoodle zucchini bread.

I know, what kind of wife/mom am I to sell my family on a recipe by stuffing it with Hershey’s Cinnamon Chips and covering it with sugar? Well I’m the best kind because everyone loved it!

The secret ingredient? We added a little cinnamon applesauce because the girls said to and I am obedient. Actually, it was one of their little Treetop snack packs of applesauce sitting in the fridge and it was the perfect amount. I wanted to love it, the family just wanted to try it while I took forever photographing it and in the end, we can’t believe we “ate the whole thing”. It was just so good!

    I made this recipe and it turned out awful. It was so crumbly you couldn’t even slice it, it just fell apart. You picked up a piece and it just crumbled in your hand. I will never make this again.

    • Hi Lori! I’m so sorry it didn’t turn out for you! We have made this dozens of times and it has always been super moist. Are you sure you didn’t miss one of the wet ingredients? Applesauce? Egg? Oil? Was your zucchini maybe way overripe and lacking moisture?

  3. I had to dump this down the drain.  It was totally raw liquid dough in the middle after 55 minutes in the oven.  Eventually the zucchini was supposed to be squeezed dry before adding, but the recipe did not say this.  What a waste of ingredients.

    • Hi Sue, this recipe does not require squeezing the zucchini dry and with the amount of flour there isn’t any way it would be liquid after 55 minutes, so I worry that something was missed somewhere. I’d love to help you figure it out as I’m quite sure you’ll go crazy for the bread once you’ve got it made. Have you watched the video to see what we did?

  4. Oh, I made this last night and it is delish!! Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  5. I love those cinnamon chips! We put them in snicker doodles too, they sound super yummy in zucchini bread though! I can’t believe I hadn’t thought of that before. Love!

  6. Aww you are sweet Carri with this divine bread you are melting me in a good way

  7. Cinnamon chips are the best! What a genius take on zucchini bread!
