A Personal Favorite

Today I am sharing with you a great recipe I’ve been a little selfish with. I have been blogging on this blog for years and have yet to share this one simple zucchini bread recipe that happens to be my favorite.

Mmmm…fresh sweet moist zucchini bread with a little butter melted over… one of my favorite snacks and breakfasts.

Recipe Makes Two Loaves

Another perk of this yummy zucchini bread recipe is that it makes two loaves. One for me and one for a friend. Service in a snap. People pretty much think you are the best ever when you drop by with a warm loaf of bread.

Here are a few steps to making this easy zucchini bread…

1. Take your fresh garden zucchini (I wish, mine is market fresh) and grate, using a box grater, to make a beautiful mess. You will need two cups.

Pro Tip: One large zucchini or two small zucchini = 2 cups grated.

2. Combine zucchini in a large bowl with the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and other goodies). Mix until just combined.  Don’t over mix.

4. Bake at 325 degrees for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

A lovely quick bread. I hope you enjoy, now that I have broken down my walls, and shared with you my simple zucchini bread recipe. It’s an old friend of mine, bake it nicely.

        1. I have not tried it but you can use brown sugar as a sub! It might slightly change the texture and taste since it has molasses and is a bit heavier.

  1. My best friend’s mom used to make zucchini bread all the time and I’m so excited to try it now and bring it when I visit next time (:

    1. Isn’t it awesome how food brings back memories :) This really is a great zucchini bread and simple too. Good luck Kolya! Thanks for your comment!

  2. First time trying Zucchini bread. Found your recipe and I did one pan loaf and about 17 muffins and the bread came right out of the pan onto the cooling rack, looking perfect!! I can’t wait to taste it. They made the house smell amazing too while they were baking!!

  3. This bread is amazing! I have messed up every recipe i have tried except this one. So easy, simple and delicious. One pan to wash! Love that it makes two. Thanks so much for sharing!

  4. This recipe is great and best of all super easy to make. I choose this one because it says to just add everything in the bowl and then use a mixer. Made 2 going into this labor day weekend and 2 in the oven now. This will be my go to recipe from now on.

  5. Well this will be the first time ive missed up zucchini bread. I had to MIX it BY hand, and i forgot the sugar. I used to make it a lot in the mid 80’s and a few times in the early 90’S. I couldnt find the receipe i had back then. Oh well maybe this loaf wont be too bad.

  6. does zucchini have seeds? if not, i just put cucumber bread in the oven! what i used looks like a zucchini. it was picked up laying on a table with a “free – take one or two” sign.

  7. Hi! I am more on the savory side… Can i make it savory? Without shugar?? And without the vanilla.. And maby i can add insted a bit soup powder and a bit ground pepper…maby even to add fresh dill, 1 tbs or so…what do you think???? Do you think it can work???

    1. I have never made this bread savory, but let me know if you do. Normally quick breads are sweet breads, while yeast breads are savory.

    I found this recipe and have made 4 loafs so far, and it is the best, most yummy zucchini bread I have ever had! I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of adding a half cup of cinnamon applesauce for moisture (I am always in fear of making a dry bread). It came out AMAZING and I will definitely be making this again. With zucchini in abundance this time of year I am so excited to find such a wonderful, easy recipe! Thank you!!!
