Yes, absolutely! This is one of the best ways to use zucchini for the winter months or until the next zucchini season. I do what Mrs. Story's mom does: bake it, cool it, wrap in foil and pop into a large ziplock baggie or if you have one, use your vacuum food-sealer. It's wonderful to thaw out a loaf in the middle of winter for a quick, ready-made treat or as a gift for someone. :)

Before freezing the zucchini bread, I use an electric knife to slice the bread. That way it is ready to serve almost immediately out of the freezer. I don't have a vacuum food sealer, so after placing the wrapped bread inside a plastic bag, I remove as much air as possible and then close the ziploc bag except for a small opening where I stick in a drinking straw. I do my own vacuum sealing by sucking air through the straw and when the bag is tight around the bread I pull the straw out while sealing the bag.

I agree with lah34a. My mom makes zucchini bread and freezes it. She wraps it tightly in foil and then puts it into a freezer ziplock bag.

I also freeze zucchini bread. I make chocolate zucch ("zook" as we fondly call it) bread with chocolate chips too. I wrap it in wax paper (keeps it soft), then foil.

My daughter lives alone, so when I make it for her, I cut the loaves in half, wrap each half in wax paper, and foil, and put in big ziplock. Then she can take out a half at a time, and keep the other half frozen. Phyllis

I like to can it since I have a small freezer. To can zuke or nanner bread {or any other fruit bread, strawberry, orange or tangerine tea bread} just get jars that are wider at the top than the bottom, spray the inside with pam or grease it well, then fill just under 1/2 full with batter and bake on a baking sheet {helps keep the jars from falling between the oven grates & tilting} then bake, about 10 minutes short of the full time for a loaf pan size and remove from oven, place on a towel to keep jars from cracking if suddenly placed on a cold counter} wipe tops with clean dry cloth and put on the 2 piece canning lids, tada! {you must seal them while they are still scalding hot and then listen for the "POP" that means they have sealed as they cooled off}

They will keep 2 years easily and are great for shut ins or anyone alone, they just pop the lid and slice, easy to toast and smells wonderful while it's in the toaster!

If you give these as gifts also add a plastic lid {available with the canning supplies} so if the person doesn't eat it all they can use the plastic instead of metal lid while the leftovers are in the fridge, no more rusted jars or lids!

Add a jar or 2 of home made jam or jelly {use the 4 oz jars for single peep, they will get eaten before getting moldy} and you will really make someone's day as they bite into summer with the snow on the ground!
