Zucchini bread makes a favorite bread recipe and with the twist of this salted caramel version, it will surely become a favorite way to enjoy your zucchini!

Salted Caramel Zucchini Bread Recipe from addapinch.com

I’m not sure what it is about the salted caramel, but it just seems that whatever I add it to – even if I’ve raved about that recipe for years – just gets exponentially better. Take my family’s zucchini bread recipe. It is one that I’ve eaten and loved since I was a little girl. It’s one that has been in my family for years before I was even a thought in my parents’ minds. In other words, it’s an old, old, old, old recipe! Ha!

The other day when I was making it, I decided to add a fun new flavor element to it by adding in some salted caramel I’d made. Oh boy! Talk about being such a difference that I don’t want to make it without it again anytime soon!

Then, once the bread came out of the oven, I took the liberty of pouring some over the top. I know! While it was probably totally unnecessary, it sure was delicious! It soaked into the warm bread almost like you’d expect from a cake you’ve poked holes into, but not nearly as much. When I sat down with a slice and my morning coffee, I immediately thought how much I wish you all were able to have a bite. So, so delicious!

  1. Is coconut oil available in most grocery stores? If so, is it in a solid form like Crisco shortening?

    1. Hi Sally,
      Yes, coconut oil is now widely available in grocery stores and is solid at room temperature.

  2. Do you use a boughten salted caramel sauce? I have never seen any in the stores around here, in northern Wi. Only caramel ice cream topping. Can you use it and just sprinkle salt on top lightly?
