Lemony Summer Squash Bread

Lemony Summer Squash Bread


Lemony Summer Squash Bread


I’ve made this recipe twice, and it’s divine! I even froze some small loaves and had some yesterday!! My question is this, has anyone played around with a gluten free recipe? I have some end of the season squash so I thought I would try some coconut and almond flours. Thank you!


I just made this bread, and oh my goodness, it is just delightful! The flavor is wonderful! I have so many summer squash from my garden right now, and this is a fabulous way to use them up. I was growing tired of eating them as-is. Thanks for this awesome recipe!


I made this last night and OH.MY.GOODNESS is it amazing.. the kids had it for breakfast this morning and raved! For the flour I used 1cup white, 1cup wheat, and 1 cup wheat germ (a “sneaky chef”substitution) and brought the sugar down to 1 3/4 cup but, holy cow, is this bread the bomb…it is actually more like cake. This is all the better because I grew that squash in my own yard. Wow-will be sharing this!!


Your reaction was much like mine\u2026it was a gamble but it SO paid off; glad you and your family love it too Sue!


Love lemon, I may have mentioned that before. So glad you brought this bread back \u2014 somehow I missed it first time around. Perfect summer recipe \u2014 thanks.


For myself, I’m delighted that you went sweet with this. I think it’s pretty darn creative of you to make a bread (loaf cake) from the squash. It certainly looks appetizing and if you and your neighbours loved it then that’s good enough for me!


I probably would have gone savory with this one, because that is my way, but I am so glad you bucked the system and went sweet, Barb. This is a beautiful cake or bread or whatever you want to call it. I wish I lived on your block.


Well, it may have taken you awhile to make this but guess what? I think you are the first person to come up with the idea of using summer squash like this! What is wrong with the rest of us because it looks wonderful.


Well someone took a huge leap of faith once with zucchini; guess it just took me decades after making my first zucchini bread to do the same with yellow squash? It is wonderful; so glad I did!


That roasted lemon garnish is beautiful, and this recipe looks lovely. Did you peel the squash before grating?


Thank you Rivki and no; no peeling. Depending on the age and size of the squash, whether yellow or zucchini, I either grate whole if they’re young and don’t have a lot of fibrous stuff and seeds in the middle or I grate pieces if they’re large and I have to clean out the inside. I typically use my Cuisinart but discovered something this weekend when I couldn’t find my stem piece for the grating blade. When I used an old fashioned box grater on this big squash, I grated it whole; the flesh grated and fell on the inside of the grater and the seeds and that stringy fibrous stuff did not grate and so landed on the outside. It was sort of perfect!


Well, duh! That’s all I can say. The minute I saw the title in my email I knew I was going to think, “why didn’t I ever try that?”I make zucchini bread every summer when there are so many around.


You and me and everyone else Maureen. Truth is I loved it so much if I had to choose? Hmm, might be a hard call but this would win right now. I love zucchini bread but I save the grated squash for bread later in the year with cinnamon and nutmeg seem more in season. This is so perfect now when yellow squash are still coming off the vine. I might have to rethink planting one next summer!


This was definitely one of those palm-to-the-forehead, why-didn’t-I-think-of-that moments!! Love it!


If I’m honest I expected a whole bunch of people to comment and say, \u2018Oh I’ve done that before.’ but instead seems I took a chance on something we’ve all had in front of us for years and never thought to do. That it is so good makes me especially happy to share it with my friends and THE WORLD!!


A beautiful recipe, Barb…love it!


Thanks Lizzie; easy too\u2026aren’t those the best?


WHAT a great idea. Going to do this after my weekly trip to the farmers’ market next Wednesday.


When I can inspire someone who has an entire book about vegetables? You just made my day! Hope you love it too. I gave one loaf to the neighbors who gave me the squash; he brought the plate back a bit later wondering if he should be embarrassed it was all gone so soon. Embarrassed? Nothing more special than knowing someone loved something so much that they ate it all up!


OMG -yes! Why didn’t we all think of that! Seems obvious. Looks so good. Can’t wait to try it!


I know right? Let me know if you try it; hope you love it like we did.


This is one of those why-didn’t-I-think-of-that recipes! Summer squash and zucchini are practically interchangeable, yet I’ve never seen summer squash bread before. Next time I have yellow squash laying around, I know what I’m making!


Everyone has felt the same way; I’ve never before looked at a yellow squash and considered bread but now? I will never not. This is so good; it will be a new staple in this house every year!

If it’s Thursday I must be be posting for the Food Network and this week I’m re-posting a favorite from a couple of years ago for our #SummerSoiree series. The topic this week is \u2018Summer Squash’ and I just had to share this one again. While zucchini is ubiquitous with a form of bread, somehow we haven’t done that same service with its summer partner and let me tell you, try this Lemony Summer Squash bread and you may just say goodbye to Zucchini Bread forever! (Or at least afford equal time!).


Seriously why did I never think to make Lemony Summer Squash Bread before? I have been making zucchini bread for ages; probably ever since we had a huge garden at our first home which was at least 30 years ago and while we would occasionally have the same over abundance with yellow squash that we had with zucchini I never, not once, EVER thought to utilize it in a bread.


The original recipe I’ve used for zucchini bread for all those years comes from a VERY old church cookbook; one that belonged to my mom. It’s a standout and perfect and I’ve only revised it to include some cream cheese frosting but not once in all those years, not in any other church or community cookbook did I see a similar recipe for yellow squash. Now I lament WHY? This recipe for a lemony summer squash bread is absolutely divine; right now I would choose it in a heartbeat over zucchini bread so grab that yellow squash, get your graters and go for it!


My inspiration to go this route was really pretty simple. My neighbors had gifted me with a big yellow summer squash. Now I know if I had cut it open that I was going to find that same fibrous interior with some big seeds that appear in zucchini when they get big; much like the inside of pumpkins. So my choices were to stuff it or. What?


That’s when I wondered myself why I had never thought to grate it and make bread (which in all honestly is more like cake with the sugar and glaze). I thought I would give it a try and originally thought savory. Maybe some herbs and roasted tomatoes? Or a yellow squash garlic bread? Those all sounded good enough but it was a simple juxtaposition that morning that sealed the deal. The squash was on the counter next to lemons and I was off and running!


This recipe is an adaptation of my tried and true one for zucchini bread and it was perfect. I like enough lemon that there is no doubting that’s what it is and this had that. I didn’t go the route of frosting though; preferring to make a glaze and add some of the juice and zest of lemon to that touch as well. The crowning glory? Those adorable little roasted lemon slices. I made those for this salad a couple of weeks ago and they are not just a pretty face; that roasting in olive oil and sugar makes for a fun bite too!


Know what I consider a successful recipe? One that is shared with my Indian neighbors who cook only Indian dishes and who ask for the recipe afterwards. They LOVED it. That’s all the testimony I needed and hope you try it too!


Be sure to check out all the wonderful recipes from my friends after the recipe; it’s a Summer Squash bonanza!
