Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 10-inch cast-iron skillet, and place it into the oven while it preheats.
  2. Place the zucchini, milk, onion, eggs, and vegetable oil into a blender, and pulse 5 to 8 times, until thoroughly mixed and the zucchini and onion have been chopped into very small pieces.
  3. Mix together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Pour the zucchini mixture into the cornmeal mixture, stirring to combine, and gently mix in the Cheddar cheese.
  4. Carefully pour the batter into the hot greased skillet, smooth it out with a spoon, and bake until the cornbread is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

This would probably be 5 stars without my tweaking, if just a bit less favorful. I used yellow summer squash (but don't think that mattered), adding approximately 1/8 c. more squash. I used half the salt & added a little Cajun seasoning. For half the onion I substituted crushed French onions from a can. Very tasty & moist!

This was fantastic! The only changes I made were to use 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup white (instead of all white), added a pinch of red pepper flakes to the blender mixture, and sprayed an 8x8 baking dish w/garlic olive oil (I don't have a cast iron skillet). This was certainly full of flavor and I will be making it many times over! The only bummer is that it only uses 1 cup of zucchini and I needed to get rid of a lot more than that.

Followed the recipe exactly. Baked in four mini loaf pans. Served with chili. Delicious and will definitely make again.
