This Pineapple Zucchini Bread is a great way to “get rid” of some of your garden vegetables.

Plus, it doesn’t even taste like the dreaded vegetable that begins with a “Z”. In fact, you’ll hardly even know it’s there.

Even those who are not a fan of this vegetable will like this bread–though you may have to squeeze the compliment out of them!

This is the perfect recipe to use with those big, slightly overgrown zucchini that someone brought in from the garden. If the zucchini is too big, cut the seed out of the centers and shred the rest after you peel it.

Ingredients Needed to Make Pineapple Zucchini Bread

  • sugar
  • large eggs (2 of them)
  • vegetable oil
  • vanilla extract
  • all-purpose flour
  • salt
  • baking powder
  • baking soda
  • ground cinnamon
  • ground nutmeg
  • shredded zucchini
  • crushed pineapple

Directions on Making this Quick Bread

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using a box grater, shred the peeled zucchini. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Beat well on medium speed.

In a small bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg. Stir this into your egg mixture just until moistened.

With a plastic spatula, fold in zucchini and undrained pineapple to incorporate with the rest of the batter.

Pour the batter into two greased loaf pans. Bake for 60-65 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaves comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan and then remove from pans. Allow to completely cool on a wire rack. This recipe makes 2 loaves.

Apple Cider Fritters

Apple Cider Fritters

Here's a delicious recipe flavored with cider, cinnamon, a sweet glaze, and small chunks of apples. I'm not sure there's a better way to welcome in Autumn than by enjoying one of these lovelies. Click to Tweet

Apple Cider Fritters is a delicious recipe we enjoy in the fall that I make using my dad’s fresh apple cider. I’m not sure there is a better way to welcome in Autumn than by enjoying one of these lovelies.

Apple Cider Mill

Have I mentioned before that my dad likes to harvest apples in the fall to make apple cider? He uses one of those big old-fashioned apple presses and freezes the juice in bottled containers. Then he shares cider with all of his children and grandchildren at Christmas or whenever the urge strikes! My husband loves drinking the fresh cider while I enjoy it best in a hot mulled drink. I love to use it in several recipes made special for fall. Like these fritters!

What is a Fritter?

A fritter is simply food that has been dipped in a batter and deep fried. Like corn fritters, or recently I’ve been seeing lots of recipes for zucchini fritters.

When I think of apple fritters, however, I think of donuts. They’re sweet. Like a dessert. However, there is no yeast in the batter, so they don’t qualify as a donut. But still…cinnamon, sweet glaze, small pieces of apple, and my dad’s homemade apple cider. Oh my, and yes please!

Ingredients Needed to Make Apple Cider Fritters

  • Granny Smith apples
  • cornstarch
  • all-purpose flour
  • granulated sugar
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • ground cinnamon
  • nutmeg
  • apple cider
  • large eggs
  • butter
  • peanut oil for frying

For the Glaze:

  • powdered sugar
  • apple cider
  • cinnamon
  • nutmeg

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Using a small pairing knife or peeling knife, peel, core, and slice apples into small pieces. Place in a medium sized bowl and sprinkle with cornstarch. Stir to coat. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, ground cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add apple cider, eggs, and melted butter. Whisk together until moistened. Gently, fold in apples.

Heat oil in a Dutch oven to 350 degrees. Using a large serving spoon, heap portions of batter into hot oil. Press batter lightly with the back of spoon to flatten. Fry two or three at a time, keeping oil temperature between 325-350 degrees. Cook until the fritters turn a deep golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer fritters to a wire rack. Repeat for remaining batter.

To make the glaze, in a medium bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, apple cider, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Top each fritter with a spoonful of glaze while still warm.

This recipe will make 8 large fritters. These fritters are best when enjoyed fresh and warm.
