Zucchini, zucchini, zucchini.  It’s everywhere.  So what to do with it all?  Have no fear, I’ve been cooking and baking with it pretty much non-stop over the last week, so I’ve got plenty of delicious ideas for you!  Our crazy busy summer got me inspired to hunker down in my kitchen and get cooking and baking again.  I feel very inspired right now which feels so good, and it’s good news for you too…this means more recipes for you!

I actually couldn’t wait to share this Zucchini, Cheddar Cheese & Chive Buttermilk Quick Bread recipe with you.  It’s the kind of recipe that makes you just want to bake it and eat it…with slabs of butter…or dipped in soup.  This quick bread should be on your baking list this fall & winter.  I know it will be on ours more than once!

Buttermilk quick breads are a great way to serve freshly baked bread for your family.  I love them because they require NO kneading, NO rising and really NO fuss.  Just stir together some simple ingredients, bake it for an hour and you’ve got fresh bread ready to devour.  So far I’ve made Cheddar & Dill Buttermilk Quick BreadMozzarella & Parmesan Buttermilk Quick Bread, and now this new and delicious version using the bountiful summer vegetable, the zucchini.  Since zucchini has such a mild flavour, I decided to add a sharp cheese and fresh chives to make sure the flavours were strong, and it turned out beautifully!

    I love zucchini but I’m the only one in my family that does! This would be perfect to make with all the zucchini that doesn’t get eaten quick enough!

    Thanks for sharing and linking up with us at the Best of the Blogosphere!

    This looks so tasty – I overbought zucchini for another recipe, so I’ve been looking for something else to use it in. I especially love that this recipe doesn’t require a bread machine. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    Oh my goodness, does this bread look incredible! I’m a sucker for quick breads of any variety, and I’m really excited to give this one a go because zucchini is my fave, and I’m trying to eat ALL of it before the season is over.

    Just wanted to stop by from the SITS Saturday Sharefest and say hello! Happy weekend to you!

    This looks so good, can I use almond flour or coconut flour in place of regular flour in this recipe? Thanks

    • Reply Jo-Anna@APrettyLife September 13, 2015 at 1:03 PM

      Hi Joni! I’ve never tried to make this recipe with anything other than all purpose flour. From my experience with using almond flour and coconut flour, I don’t think it would turn out…I think it would be very mushy!

    This looks tasty! How many zucchinis equal 1 cup?

    • Reply Jo-Anna@APrettyLife January 29, 2016 at 12:43 PM

      Hi! Roughly 1 medium zucchini should get you 1 cup! Happy baking!

  • Reply Jennifer May 12, 2016 at 1:43 PM

    Do you peel your zucchini before shredding or not? I see a lot of green in the bread, but not sure if that’s chives or zucchini.

      Hi Jennifer! I always leave the skin on the zucchini…happy baking!
