The Certifiable Wench Bakes: Zucchini, Cheddar, Chive Bread

Its zucchini season again and we are faced with an abundance of zucchini in my garden.  I found this fabulous recipe for a savory zucchini bread at A Pretty Life and my sister loves it. I've made it for her 2 times already.

Its a very simple recipe and it comes out perfectly every time.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 tspbaking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 shredded cheddar cheese 
  • 2 tbsp chopped chives  (fresh or dried..I've used Lighthouse Dried Chives and they are fabulous)
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini (You definitely want to squeeze out as much of the moisture out as possible)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and egg.
  4. Whisk the melted butter into the buttermilk mixture.
  5. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mix, and gently combine. Don't over mix the batter.
  6. Stir in the shredded cheese, shredded zucchini and chopped chives.
  7.  Grease your 9x5 bread pan. I like to use baker's joy on mine
