How to Make Zucchini Bread Moist
The trick to making this zucchini bread moist, is using applesauce. You must make sure it is unsweetened applesauce or it will make this homemade quick bread too sweet.
I prefer using the smooth applesauce, but if you are looking thru your pantry and only have chunky applesauce you can use that. You will not taste the applesauce in this zucchini bread with applesauce recipe. It just makes the homemade bread moist and the best bread ever!
Can I Freeze Zucchini Bread?
This homemade Bread never lasts long in our house and it is a bread recipe that I normally double the recipe of so I can stick a few loaves in the freezer.
Freezing this homemade bread is simple, let the loafs of fresh baked bread cool completely. Once they are cool wrap well with plastic wrap, then a layer of tinfoil and then stick in a ziplock bag.
Store the bread in the freezer and it will keep for 3-6 months.
Once you are ready to defrost your homemade bread, just remove from the freezer and place in the fridge, while still wrapped until it is defrosted.

Zucchini bread is a favorite in my house. I grate and freeze zucchini in the summer so we can have zucchini bread all winter.

This recipe has replaced my go-to zucchini bread recipe probably forever. It’s moist and delicious and pretty much foolproof. Love it!
This is a great zucchini bread recipe! I used cinnamon sugar after I sprayed the pan and then sprinkled a little on top before the dough baked just cuz I like cinnamon. Yum! Moist with just a little bit of crunch on the outside. Baked more to freeze. Thanks for sharing!
