Pumpkin Zucchini Bread 1.0

It's been a loooooong time since I've baked anything with pumpkin.  Suddenly I found myself wanting to experiment with it once again.  I suspect I've been influenced by all the wonderful goodies I've been seeing posted around the net. ;)  This loaf came out dense, moist, and incredibly tasty.  I think it needs a little more flour next time, but otherwise I'm pretty happy with the recipe.

Pumpkin Zucchini Bread 1.0

1 cup grated zucchini
1 cup pureed pumpkin
1/3 cup tub margarine
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 cup oat bran
2 tbls ground flax
2 tbls wheat germ
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tbls orange peel
1/4 tsp cloves

Blend together margarine and sugar.  Beat in egg, zucchini, and pumpkin.  Blend in all dry ingredients until nicely mixed together.  Pour into greased loaf pan.  Bake at 350 for 45 to 55 minutes until loaf tests as done.  Cool before slicing.

I adore the color in this just calls to me to cut a slice and have a nosh.  It did come out a little on the flat side, but some tinkering with the recipe should give it some more poof., yes yes.  ;)


  1. What a great combination. That bread looks tasty and healthy, too.

  2. that's a lovely bread! i just recently made apples and cranberries loaf and i never thought i'd make bread but i did :) thanks for posting this recipe! i haven't tried pumpkin and zucchinis but it looks a worthy try!

  3. I've baked more things with pumpkin lately than I should probably admit :) But zucchini has definitely been escaping my recipes and baking. Thanks for the reminder that it's still out there :) This looks like an awesome combination!

  4. My best friend and I share a love of zucchini bread. What a great idea to add the delicious flavor of pumpkin!

  5. Yum! I seem to be 'smelling' pumpkin on lots of blog posts lately - makes me happy as we know the holidays are approaching. Love your combo of flavors! Thanks for sharing.

  6. You fell victim to the pumpkin craze! I did too. Pumpkin and zuch together, how gorgeous!

  8. Flax seed and oat bran,way to sneak something healthy in on us. Great recipe.

  9. This sounds like its packed with all the nutritional and fibrous goodness! Definitely breakfast worthy!

  10. I think the pumpkin and zucchini is a perfect combination since zucchini picks up the flavor of whatever it's cooked with. It's a beautiful loaf. Thanks for sharing.
