This Sugar Glazed CUCUMBER Bread is delicious and so moist! It tastes just like zucchini bread, but it’s made with 1 cup grated cucumber. The healthy dessert recipe is easy to make and is a great way to eat your vegetables! A powdered sugar glaze is poured on top once baked! Everyone in my family LOVES it – even toddlers!
This weekend there were many surprises in the garden. The monster pumpkin plant just won’t stop growing. There was a 5 pound bag of potatoes waiting for us under the soil. Carrots were pulled. Jalapeno peppers were picked. Cucumbers were spotted.
These are all vegetables I was hoping for, but maybe in a few weeks…. but in typical garden fashion, they make their own rules and showed up to the party early. I couldn’t have been more happy to see them!
I saw a few baby cucumbers growing on the vine last weekend but somehow those babies transformed to multiple large cucumbers in just a few days, ready to be picked and enjoyed. My Half Sour Pickle recipe and Cucumber Tomato Salad is a favorite way to use cucumbers, but I was trying to figure out how to bake with them.
Baking with Cucumbers!
This Sugar Glazed Cucumber Bread was created because of that! This bread is similar to Zucchini Bread, but instead is made with grated cucumbers. After the bread cools, a delicious powdered sugar glaze is poured on top to make it really special. This is our new breakfast recipe that I’ll be making weekly until the cucumbers finish in the garden.
This is one of my family’s favorite cucumber recipes – perfect for Mom and Dad, but also perfect for toddlers and kids! Even my 1 year old loves a piece of this for breakfast in the morning!
Now let’s get baking!
