What's this?

Baking Zucchini Bread on the Traeger brings out fall flavors. The wood-fired smoke encircles and infuses a flavorful addition that creates an amazingly delicious breakfast treat.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Walnuts, Chopped

  • 2 Large zucchini

  • 1 Teaspoon salt

  • 1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1/4 Teaspoon baking powder

  • 3 Cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 eggs

  • 2 Cup sugar

  • 1/2 Cup vegetable oil

  • 1/2 Cup Yogurt

  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract

Steps

  • 1

    Grease and flour two 9- by 5-inch bread pans, preferably nonstick.
  • 2

    When ready to cook, set the temperature to 350℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 3

    Spread the walnuts on a pie plate and toast for 10 minutes, stirring once. Let cool, then coarsely chop. Set aside.
  • 4

    Trim the ends off the zucchini, then coarsely grate into a colander set over the sink on a box grater (or use the shredding disk on a food processor). You'll need 2 cups.
  • 5

    Sprinkle with the salt and let drain for 30 minutes. Press on the zucchini with paper towels to expel excess water.
  • 6

    Sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and cloves in a mixing bowl or on a large sheet of parchment or wax paper.
  • 7

    Combine the eggs, sugar, oil, yogurt, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and mix on medium speed. (You can mix the batter by hand, if desired.) Add half the dry ingredients and mix on low speed; add the remaining dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  • 8

    Stir in the walnuts and zucchini by hand.
  • 9

    Divide the batter between the prepared baking pans.
  • 10

    Arrange the pans directly on the grill grate and bake for 50 minutes, or until a bamboo skewer inserted in the center of the breads comes out clean.
  • 11

    Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes, then remove the breads from the pans. For best results, let the breads cool completely before slicing.
