Zucchini Bread Recipe with Caramel Baking Chips and Stroopwafels:

This recipe came from The Working Cook, one of my go-to old school cookbooks. I modified our Classic Zucchini Bread recipe by adding some yummy ingredients to make this caramel version.  You can jazz up zucchini bread with chocolate chips (our favorite), glazes (try our mocha glazed version), nuts and raisins, and so much more.

Recently, I found a bag of Ghiradelli Caramel baking chips and a half-eaten box of Stroopwafels from Big Lots while cleaning out the pantry. What is a Stroopwafel?  It is a double layered waffle cookie filled with caramel originally from the Netherlands. My brain started working, and next thing you know I created a new favorite version of zucchini bread.

I love how you get a double-punch of caramel flavor in this zucchini quick bread.  It is a great combination with a cup of coffee for breakfast or for dessert after a summer dinner like Grilled Pork Steak.

2 Loaf Zucchini Bread Recipe

I love zucchini bread recipes that make 2 loaves of bread.  Here’s how I play these cards.

We eat one loaf of this moist zucchini bread right away, and then there’s an extra to do one of two things with.

  1. Share a loaf of zucchini bread with caramel with friends or family, or possibly someone who just had a baby, a death, or who might be just have a rough time.
  2. Wrap up the moist zucchini bread in foil and then seal tightly in an air-tight zip lock back, and toss it in the freezer for later.

Either way, you’ll be glad you made this 2 loaf zucchini bread recipe.
