"A sweet cinnamon-y zucchini bread that makes use of all the leftover zucchini from my family's garden. My whole family loves this bread and begs me to make it as soon as the zucchinis are harvested! Pecans can be used in place of walnuts if preferred."

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare 2 8x4-inch loaf pans with cooking spray.
  2. Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer until frothy. Slowly add the sugar while continually beating. Stir the vegetable oil and vanilla into the egg mixture; continue beating until the mixture is thick. Add the zucchini to the mixture and stir.
  3. Mix the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl; pour into the wet mixture and stir until just combined. Add the chopped walnuts and stir. Divide the batter between the two prepared loaf pans.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before loosening the edges with a knife and removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Love this bread. It is simple and delicious! I did make a few changes. I used 1 1/2c of sugar instead of the 2 cups, used 1/2c oil and 1/2c applesauce, used wheat flour instead of all purpose and since I didn't have enough zucchini on hand I used 1c zucchini and 1c shredded carrots. Yum!!


Wanted to try something different this time when making zucchini bread, so I thought I'd give this recipe a try. Greasing the pan is NOT ENOUGH. You need to flour it as well or you'll never get it out of your pan, especially if you use a bundt pan like I did. I added chopped walnuts to mine. Flavor was very good and ready to eat as soon as it cooled. I find that with most quick breads, they are better if you wait to eat them a few days after baking- no need to wait with this one. It even made a nice crunchy crust.


I have to say this is a very classic zucchini bread and it is perfect. :D We love it, a lot! I hate all of the fancy schmancy recipes, this one is very simple and yet very classic, almost like Grammas! Good job.
