Fall is here and one of the most exciting things is, it’s the start of baking season!!!

Well all year you can bake…but sometimes in the summer you don’t want to start your oven and get the kitchen all hot, you know?!  For me when I think of fall baking I think of breads, banana bread, pumpkin bread, zucchini bread and the list of variations go on…

I did not create my own recipe for chocolate chip zucchini bread because there are a million and one recipes out there, BUT I did put a fun twist on the bread by baking them in a fun Wilton’s Silicone Fall pumpkin and leaf molded tray.

The bread came out so delicious and moist! 

I don’t know but, I just love picking up a little piece of bread in the shape of a pumpkin or leaf and enjoying with a cup of coffee…so good!

The recipe I used is here Zucchini Bread.

Preheat your oven to 350°F

Here are your ingredients.

  • 3 cups grated fresh zucchini
  • 2/3 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 1 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • Pinch salt
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup walnuts (optional)
  •  In a large bowl combine the sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Stir in the grated zucchini and then the melted butter. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt. Stir these dry ingredients into the zucchini mixture. Now add in your extras ( walnuts, chocolate chips…)

    One little tiny thing I added to the fall themed muffins were chocolate chips and walnuts, totally optional. I added a cup of chopped walnuts and ½ cup chocolate chips.

    Here are all the extras stirred in. 

    I did mix all the dry and wet ingredients instructed by the recipe with my stand mixer.

    Here are my favorite fall themed molds by Wilton and the key is to use Pam Baking Spray so nothing sticks.

    If you want to purchase Wilton Silicon molds go down to your local craft store and they carry them in the cake decorating area. Also before you go, your local craft store usually has coupons too (Michael’s, Joann’s, Hobby Lobby etc.)

    You can see some are higher than the others but ideally you want them about 3/4’s of the way full.

    Bake according to the directions or until a toothpick comes out with no batter on it. 

    Aren’t they just to die for??! So cute and delicious!!!
