Onion Zucchini Bread Recipe

Only two steps and this bread is mixed and ready for the oven! We love the flavor of the onion and Parmesan cheese. Baked in a round pan, it looks nice on the table whole or sliced in wedges.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup finely shredded zucchini


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, onion, 6 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese, baking powder, salt and baking soda. In a small bowl, combine the buttermilk, oil, eggs and zucchini; stir into flour mixture just until blended.
  • 2. Spoon into a greased 9-in. round baking pan. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan. Bake at 350° for 40- 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to wire rack to cool completely. Yield: 6-8 servings.
