Sharing is caring!

 This Pineapple Zucchini Bread is a super moist treat made with Greek yogurt, pineapple and fresh zucchini that goes perfectly with a big mug of coffee!

Guten Morgen!

Are you wondering what the heck I just said? Well those that speak German know– good morning in German!  Today begins our adventures in Europe. First stop, Munich! After a 9 hour overnight flight we will arrive in Germany and begin our journey. Fingers crossed I am not exhausted with jetlag.

The first day we are doing a bike tour around Munich which I think will be a great way to see the city. Oh, and the bike tour has a stop at the second largest beer garden in the world! Who doesn’t love a good mug of Germany beer and a huge soft pretzel? Prost!

While I am gone two of my favorite bloggers will be sharing their delicious recipes with you all.

Pineapple Zucchini Bread

Today I am excited to share a Pineapple Zucchini Bread recipe that I made recently.  Zucchini bread has always been a favorite of mine.  My Mom grew zucchinis in her garden when we were little and there was always an abundance of them.  She would use them throughout the summer to make two loaves of zucchini bread– one was always in the freezer for later! I have fond memories of her moist, delicious zucchini bread and still ask her to make it for me when I visit.

Breakfast was my favorite time to sit down and have a piece..or two…but it is a great afternoon snack alongside a cup of coffee or tea.  In this recipe I used a cup of Chobani Pineapple Greek Yogurt (plain Greek yogurt works just fine). It made the bread extra moist and added a very slight hint of pineapple to the bread which was a nice change.

The fact that this Pineapple Zucchini Bread is freezer friendly is great for busy days when you need a quick snack.

Zucchini Bread

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 1 hour
  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1x
  • Category: Bread, Breakfast

Description

A moist and light zucchini bread using Greek Yogurt.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 16oz fat-free pineapple Greek Yogurt (I used Chobani’s Pineapple Greek Yogurt, you can also use plain Greek Yogurt)
  • 1 cup coarsely grated zucchini (about 1 medium zucchini)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325. Grease a 9×4 1/2 inch metal bread loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl (or using a mixer) mix together the sugar with the eggs, vegetable oil and fat-free yogurt.
  4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients along with the zucchini. Mix until the batter is moistened and ingredients are mixed evenly.
  5. Pour the batter into the pan (making sure it is even). Baked for about 1 hour (until the loaf rises and you can insert a toothpick and it comes out clean).
  6. Let the bread cool on a rack for 40-45 minutes before removing from the bread pan.
  7. Wrap whatever bread you have left in plastic and keep at room temperature for up to 4 days, or wrap in plastic and then foil and freeze for us to 1 month (I double the recipe and freeze one loaf for later).

Notes

To freeze the bread wrap the whole thing plastic wrap and then put in a big freezer ziplock bag. If you want to have individual slices just slice it up and wrap them individually. You can either let the loaf or slices sit on your counter to thaw or heat them in the microwave for 30-40 seconds.

Zucchini bread is a major favorite of mine, but your addition of pineapple really puts it over the edge! I cannot wait to try this out :).

When my sister, who is several years older than I am, was taking high school German, I picked up a little here and there, and would attempt to communicate in my heinous secondhand German. One day I was *starving* like only a dramatic kid can be and attempted to convey it in German. "Ich bin eur zo HUNGRY!" I cried. It kind of became a family phrase. ;)

This zucchini bread looks so fabulous. I love the idea of adding pineapple to zucchini bread - sounds so utterly moist.

Hope you are having a marvelous trip! Gotta admit, ich bin eur zo jealous. ;)

Love that story! I wish I would have known more German and been able to communicate more while there!

I hope you are having fun on your European adventure! My Mom adds crushed pineapple to her zucchini bread so I love the twist with the pineapple Greek yogurt. Looks so good!

Crushed pineapple would be great too! I need to try that.
