Fruit and Veggie Bread Recipe

Fruit and Veggie Bread – Delicious chunky quick bread packed with fruits and veggies! 

Fruit and Veggie Bread1

Can’t believe it’s September already! Where does the time go? I mean really. I know everyone says that, but I have to say it, too. Back in the day it felt like time stood still, now I feel as though I can’t catch up.

But, as it is said out here in Macedonia, it is all good as long as we are Здрави и Живи – Healthy and Alive.

Guess what? I have another guest post for you today, and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I enjoy reading her blog. 

This delicious bread recipe comes from Katrina, author of In Katrina’s Kitchen. She is one of the most adorable, most talented, and funniest people I have ever met. Well, not really met… not in person anyways, but we might one day?! Right K? Love ya!! Thank you for being here my sweet friend! Take it away!

When Kate from Diethood asks you to do a guest post for her you just agree. I mean there was really no question as to if I had time or if I had anything worthwhile to post. Like a robot I said yes then I came back to reality and got super-nervous. THIS IS DIETHOOD! I can’t believe I’m here taking up space on her gorgeous blog. That’s the other thing- you all come here expecting Kate’s beautiful photos! Oh dear! I’m just going to close my eyes and jump right in. You tell me when it’s over, okay?!

Hi! I’m Katrina from In Katrina’s Kitchen! I’m a wife and mom to a house full of boys who like to eat. You can usually find me baking with a baby on my hip and a Hot Wheels car in my hand.

I’m so honored to be here with you today sharing this delicious Fruit and Veggie Bread.

WHAT IS FRUIT AND VEGGIE BREAD

Many years ago it started out as Zucchini Bread in my recipe box. Then some things were added and others taken away and the recipe card read Carrot Zucchini Bread. The poor recipe card has been all inked up again and it now reads Fruit and Veggie Bread. So you know this recipe has been around for a while and I’m happy to bring it to you in this form today.

HOW TO MAKE FRUIT AND VEGGIE BREAD

It is a pretty straight forward recipe – you basically dump it all in your mixer then bake it. I have made mini loafs, 2 large loafs, muffins, and mini muffins with this recipe. Adjust the baking time to make sure that a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Baking time depends on how much liquid you drain off of the grated zucchini as well. I seed the zucchini before I use it and I would guess I am a medium drainer—it is still wet but not dripping.

    1. Hi Jennifer!

      I have yet to work with GF Flour, thus I am no expert… but since this recipe is a no-knead bread recipe, I think that it shouldn’t be a problem. Keywords “I think” 🙂 My friend Carolyn from All Day I Dream About Food has lots of GF recipe to choose from… see if you can find some info on bread and gf flour. http://alldayidreamaboutfood.com/

      Hope this helps!!

  4. I was going to ask if I can do it wheat free but you were too quick for me. Saw you thought of that. This is a lovely recipe. So nice to see two such lovely ladies in one place.

  5. Katrina,
