Put your bounty of zucchini to good use with this soft and delicious Zucchini Bread recipe. The recipe makes two loaves, one for now, and one for later!
I’m Kristin from Yellow Bliss Road and today I’m sharing our family’s favorite Zucchini Bread recipe. Cooking and baking have always been a part of family tradition. I love making new recipes that I just discovered, but there’s something to be said for tradition, too. My grandma loved to cook and bake, and she had several beloved recipes.
Thankfully we still have a lot of them, including this – her famous zucchini bread. For all I know it could be an old Betty Crocker recipe, but to me, it will always be hers. It IS published in her church’s cookbook after all! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
As quick breads go, this one is definitely one of the best I’ve tried. It’s pretty easy to whip up, and you can customize it by adding different flavors like shredded coconut, mini chocolate chips, orange or lemon zest, or chopped walnuts. You want to be careful not to over-mix once you add the flour, though. Just a few quick stirs is all it takes to combine the final ingredients. If you over-mix, you’ll end up with a dense bread, and that’s definitely not what you want.
- 3 eggs
- ¾ cup oil
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 2 cups zucchini, grated
- 3 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 loaf pans with cooking spray.
- In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, combine oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla at medium speed; about 30 seconds. Stir in zucchini.
- In a separate medium sized bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Stir into the wet mixture, just until combined. Stir in walnuts in desired.
- Bake for 1 hour. Cool completely on wire racks.
