Plug in the bread machine.
Enter the bread machine settings (Sweet Quick Bread/Cake, Light Color, 2 lb) and press the start button. FYI - Before making this recipe, please read the tips section below for more information regarding the sweet quick bread settingused to make zucchini breads. The setting may be called "quick bread", "quick bread/cake", "cake", etc. However, some manufacturers use the "quick bread" setting are for rapid sandwich-type breads that use yeast (and not for quick breads such as zucchini bread that use baking powder/soda). Therefore, this setting can be very confusing... but the tips section below will help you to find the right setting to use on your machine. You need to enter the correct zucchini bread setting used by your SPECIFIC bread machine model or the zucchini bread could be under or overcooked.
After the first bread machine mixing cycle and before the second mixing (final mixing), add the grated zucchini & chopped walnuts (or mini chocolate chips). This is when the machine "pauses" and the mixing paddle stops for several minutes between mixing cycles. Some bread machines will also give off a "beep" to tell you when to add extra ingredients (i.e. nuts) to the mixing process. Read your bread machine manual for more details.
When the bread machine has finished baking the zucchini bread, unplug the bread machine.
Remove the bread pan and place it on a wooden cutting board (without removing the zucchini bread from the bread pan). Use oven mitts when removing the bread pan because it will be very hot!
Optional - Use a long wooden skewer to test if the zucchini bread is completely cooked. Wear oven mitts as the bread pan will be hot. See the tips section for more details on this classic "toothpick" test.
After removing the bread pan from the bread machine, you should let the zucchini bread stay within the warm bread pan on the wooden cutting board for 10 minutes (as this finishes the baking process). Wear oven mitts.
After the 10 minute "cooldown", you should remove the zucchini bread from the bread pan and place the zucchini bread on a wire cooling rack to finish cooling. Use oven mitts when removing the bread.
Don’t forget to remove the mixing paddle if it is stuck in the bread. Use oven mitts as the mixing paddle could be hot.
You should allow the zucchini bread to completely cool before cutting. This can take up to 2 hours. Otherwise, the zucchini bread will break (crumble) more easily when cut.
