Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread

To me, Zucchini Bread is the spring/summer equivalent to Pumpkin Bread in the fall.  Confession, I made this bread not once but TWICE over the weekend.  I love it with coffee for breakfast and as a snack too.  Plus, it makes my house smell insanely delicious while it’s baking.  My kids cannot wait until the zucchini in our garden are big enough to use for this recipe.  In the meantime, we’ll just buy ours from the store…because I guarantee you, we will keep making this all season long.  Enjoy!

This recipe makes one loaf.

Shopping List
2 eggs
1 cup of sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1¼ cups of all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
one cup of grated zucchini (I just used my cheese grater)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

 Lightly spray one loaf pan with cooking spray and then set aside.
 In a mixing bowl, beat eggs with an electric mixer until light and frothy.  Beat in your sugar and oil.  Set bowl aside.
 In a second mixing bowl, whisk together with a fork your flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
Slowly beat your flour mixture into your egg mixture.  Beat until just combined.  Stir in your grated zucchini.
 Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake one hour or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
 Allow bread to cool 10 minutes before removing it from the pan to finish cooling completely.
That’s it!  I’m telling you…it’s so easy and so good that you’ll make it more than once too!

    I think this is the simplest zucchini bread recipe I’ve seen – this is definitely manageable for me.

    Have you ever tried replacing some of the flour with whole wheat flour and/or the oil with coconut oil? My kids love quick bread and I love making it as healthy as possible for them :). Love your recipes….thank you for sharing them!

    I make a very similar recipe and turn it into muffins for my girls for breakfast. On top of the cup of zucchini, I also add a cup of grated carrots (I put them in a mini food processor so the carrots are almost ground rather than long strips if that makes sense). They are extra yummy, and extra veggies is always an added bonus.

    The baking temp is it 350 degree celsius or fahrenheit?
    Thank you for this simple recipe.

    How many zucchinis will I need to make a cup? Thanks!

      I had smaller ones, so for me, about one and a half. One large zucchini will do the trick though!
