This delicious bread is a great way to use late summer produce and a big hit with the whole family. It can also be made into a lower sugar version by replacing the white sugar with a bake-able sugar substitute.

  • Whisk zucchini, oil, 1 cup white sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until well mixed. Combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, salt, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and baking powder together in a separate bowl. Gradually stir flour mixture into zucchini mixture until batter is just combined; fold in plums. Pour batter into the prepared pans.

  • Mix 1 tablespoon white sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon together in a small bowl; sprinkle over batter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

This is delicious the plums give it a surprisingly mildly sweet and moist flavour. Perfect to use up those plums and zucchini from the garden. The zucchini blends in so well the batter is so flavourful. Important press the water out of the zucchini. As usual for me I reduced sugar to 1/2 cup and 1/2 cup and I increased both zuch and plums just slightly to a rounded 2 cups. I'm making it again asap. Read More

I added some nutmeg based on advise of another reviewer and because I didn't have whole wheat flour on hand I used masa corn flour. Overall it's just incredibly bland. It's not that sweet despite the amount of sugar added either. It's consistency is fine - not too moist and not too dry - but I have to eat it with jam to make it palatable. Read More

I added 1/2 a teaspoon of nutmeg to the flour and 1/8 to the crumble topping and substituted applesauce for the oil and this is OUTSTANDING! Trying a lot of different recipes due to an overachieving garden and this will be made again! Great recipe! Read More

I made it exactly like the recipe and we are delighted with the results. This is my new go-to recipe for zucchini bread. I was skeptical of all the sugar but with 3 cups of flour it makes 2 good-sized loaves of bread. Not too sweet and plums are a nice addition. Read More

I'm not gonna lie I was a little wary of this combo (plum & zucchini) but this bread blew my mind. The plum adds a nice sweetness without being overwhelming and it's extremely moist and delicious! I made 2 loaves with this recipe and they were devoured by my work Read More

I have made many sweet breads and this one was really one of the best. The only things I did different from the recipe were to use coconut oil instead of vegetable oil and added a tad more cinnamon and a little clove. The edges were crispy and sweet the inside moist and almost pudding-like from the plums. So good!! My roommates and I devoured half a loaf before it even cooled. Read More

Wow! Looking at the picture I thought the bread might be bulky and dry. Adding the plums to this recipe made it moist and almost a berry flavor......yum:D Read More
