Zucchini bread, Freshly baked and made from scratch.


I love Zucchini, but I would never have thought it would be good in bread.  I do not know where this recipe originated from; my mother sent this zucchini bread recipe to me in an email.  I also adjusted the recipe to my liking, so this isn’t an exact copy of the recipe I received from my other.

Fresh Zucchini Bread

Freshly baked zucchini bread recipe that the entire family will love. You don't have to be a zucchini fan to enjoy this freshly baked zucchini bread.

Whether you like zucchini or not you should make this bread and give it a try.  My oldest son said it tasted more like banana bread and he does not like zucchini at all.  However, he loves this bread.  I will tell you that freshly baked zucchini bread tastes much better if you are using freshly picked zucchini from your garden.  However, not everyone grows zucchini so buying your zucchini at the store will work just fine.

Zucchini Bread
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup canola oil (I used corn oil)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups shredded Zucchini (about 2 medium Zucchini)
  1. Preheat your oven to 350° and grease 2 8x4 loaf pans (or one if you don't mind tossing some mixture).
  2. In a large bowl; beat the sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla until blended well.
  3. In a medium bowl; combine all other dry ingredients (exclude nuts if you are adding those to your recipe). Gradually beat the dry mixture into the large bowl until moistened. It will get harder for your Zucchini Bread to combine all the dry ingredients.
  4. Stir in the Zucchini (and nuts). You may need to use your mixer to get it really mixed together.
  5. Pour mixture into prepared pan(s). Bake for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  6. Cool for 10 minutes then remove from pan(s) and place on wire racks to cool completely.
This recipe is enough to make 2 loaves of bread, perfect to have one for yourself and to give one to a friend or family member.

    I need to remember to plant zucchini next year so I can make zucchini bread! I heard that it usually grows pretty easily. Sounds like a yummy recipe, thanks for sharing!

      It is very easy to grow, just plant the seeds and make sure to water. Keep an eye on them though because they grow fast and HUGE! Also, you only really need one plant to give you plenty of Zucchini. If you don’t have a lot of room just allow one to continue growing.
