Recipe: Savory Zucchini Bread

Summary: If you can surprise people by putting zucchini in a sweet bread, why not put it in a savory bread?, so that’s exactly what I did. Vaguely reminiscent of a frittata, this bread uses a lot of eggs, giving it a moist crumb that’s redolent of olive oil and thyme. Rather than mix in shredded cheese that would melt into oblivion, I wanted the cheese to have a big presence. That’s why I cut the cheddar into big chunks, layering the blocks of cheese into the middle and on top of the bread.


    • 11 1/2 oz or 325 grams zucchini (about 2 medium zucchinis)
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon paprika
    • 3 large eggs
    • 1/3 cup olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • 1 sprigs fresh thyme stems removed and leaves minced
    • 3 oz 80 grams Cheddar cheese (2.8 ounces) cut into 1/2
