I love zucchini bread and jalapenos and with the bounty of both coming out of my garden I figured I'd mix the two together. The jalapenos add just the right amount of heat. You can add walnuts and/or raisins, if desired.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9x5x3-inch loaf pans.

  • Whisk flour, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and powdered jalapeno pepper together in a bowl. Add vegetable oil, applesauce, and eggs to flour mixture; beat until until batter is smooth. Fold zucchini and fresh jalapenos into batter. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean, about 1 hour. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Cook's Note:

You can make these into muffins instead of loaves, if desired. Grease 24 muffin cups or line with paper liners. Pour batter into prepared cups and bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) until set, about 20 minutes.
