How To Make Air Fryer Zucchini Bread
In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and all-spice.
In another bowl, mix together the vegetable oil, eggs, vanilla extract, and sugar, mix well. Then pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, mixing well.
Mix in the grated zucchini and diced walnuts. Pour the batter into a greased air fryer safe pan. Set the pan into the air fryer, and set the temperature to 320 degrees F, for 20-30 minutes.
When the time is up, place a toothpick in the pound cake, and check to see that the toothpick comes out clean. If not, add another 5 minutes.
How to Prepare the Zucchini for Zucchini Bread
Start by grating your zucchini; I usually use a grater. You do not need to peel the zucchini; it will all be grated.
Then add into a layer of paper towels, and let some of the moisture drains. I usually leave it for about 20 minutes. Then wrap up the grated zucchini into the paper towels, and drain. You will be surprised how much water you actually get out of the zucchini.
Then follow the recipe as directed.
What Can I Add to Zucchini Bread?
You can really add anything that you think goes well with zucchini bread. Some of my favorites are chocolate chips, blueberries, dried cranberries, or raisins.
Another great option, which I have not tried is shredded coconut flakes.
What does zucchini bread taste like?
Zucchini bread usually is a bit sweet and very tender. Since zucchini bread is a mild-tasting vegetable, you generally do not taste it.
If you add some walnuts or diced pecans into the mix, it provides a great texture.
How many zucchinis is 2 cups grated?
This recipe calls for 2 cups of grated zucchini, so if you hit the market, you are probably wondering how many zucchinis actually to purchase.
My advice is that 1 zucchini (medium-sized) zucchini is about 1 1/4 cups, so you will need to purchase and grate 2 medium-sized zucchinis.
How to Store Air Fryer Zucchini Bread
If you have any leftovers, I would wrap them up and place them on the counter. If your kitchen is hot, or it’s a hot day, I would wrap it up and place it into the refrigerator.
Zucchini bread will last between 2 to 4 days. It will last longer in the refrigerator.
How to Freeze Air Fryer Zucchini Bread
This is a great recipe if you have a LOT of zucchini to use up since Zucchini bread freezes amazingly!
To freeze, let the Air Fryer Zucchini Bread cool to room temperature, wrap it up in saran wrap, and then wrap it in foil.
Place the zucchini bread into the freezer, it will last between 2 to 3 months.
