Glazed Zucchini Bread with Dried Cranberries

This Glazed Zucchini Bread with Dried Cranberries is a delicious quick bread recipe that comes out incredibly moist with a perfect crumb. Flavored with vanilla, cinnamon, and a hint of nutmeg and topped with a sweet homemade vanilla glaze, it makes for an elegant dessert your family will enjoy. Plus, it’s a great way to sneak some healthy zucchini into their dessert – they won’t even notice.  

You don’t need to peel your zucchini for this recipe. Just wash the zucchini, and then use a large box grater. Remember to squeeze out the excess moisture in the shredded zucchini to make it as dry as possible and prevent your batter from becoming too loose. Once the zucchini is prepped, the rest is quick and easy. In a bowl, mix up the dry ingredients. In another bowl, whisk together the wet ones and stir in the zucchini. Next, fold the wet ingredients into the dry. Be sure not to overmix the batter – so the bread isn’t too dense. Last up, scrape the batter into the greased loaf pan and bake for about 55 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Once the bread is out of the oven, let it cool and then glaze.   

To make the Glazed Zucchini Bread with Dried Cranberries, you will need the following ingredients:
