Skillet Zucchini Bread

So I had my post all ready today and my hubby sends me an email informing that it is NATIONAL ZUCCHINI BREAD DAY! How did I miss that one? I mean anyone who is anyone knows it it national zucchini bread day, right? I am sure that I am probably the only person who didn’t realize what day it was. So my dilemma is this: Do I stick with the skillet recipe theme I had planned or do I honor the zucchini appropriately? Hmmmm….maybe I could combine the two? Yep, that’s what I did. I am rather impressed with myself. Here goes:



1 cake mix

¼ cup brown sugar

3 eggs

2 Tablespoons butter, melted

1 Teaspoon vanilla

1 medium zucchini, shredded (about 2 cups)

Mini chocolate chips (optional)

Press aluminum foil into electric skillet. Remove the foil and set heat on  skillet to 265 degrees with lid on. Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl. When batter is ready (it will be thick), place foil back in skillet and spray with non stick spray. Spread batter onto foil as best you can. Be careful not to burn yourself on edge of skillet! Cover with the lids slightly ajar so moisture can escape. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove lid and cook another 5 minutes to let some of the moisture evaporate.

Use different flavors of cake mix for fun variety!

Mold tin foil into your electric skillet BEFORE you heat it up. I used the heavy duty extra wide but if you need to stack it, that is fine.
Remove foil and turn the temperature to 265 degrees with the lid on.
Gather your ingredients. Note: You will only need one zucchini for the recipe, unless it is very small zucchini.
Mix ingredients together. Batter will be very thick.
Uncover skillet, put tin foil liner back in and spray with non-stick spray. Be careful putting the foil back in as the skillet will be hot.
Spread the batter the best you can. As you can see, I didn’t get it all the way to the sides but that’s okay–it will spread as it bakes.
Put the cover on but leave it slightly ajar so steam can escape.
Bake for 45 minutes…
You will be able to remove the bread easily from the skillet by picking up the sides of the foil.
Enjoy! I can’t believe that it actually worked…;)
