Zucchini Bread

Now is the time when gardeners are beginning to wonder what to do with all those zucchini that keep coming. Here’s an idea.

We love this zucchini bread, and it is easy to make!

Zucchini Bread


  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 3 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup of vegetable oil
  • 2 1/4 cups of sugar
  • 3 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of grated zucchini
  • 1 cup of chopped walnuts (optional)



Grease and flour two 8 by 4 inch pans (bread pans).
Preheat oven to 325° F (165° C).
Sift flour, salt, baking powder, soda, and cinnamon together in a bowl.
Beat eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar together in a large bowl.
Add sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture, and beat well.
Stir in zucchini and nuts (if desired) until well combined.

Pour batter into prepared pans.
Bake for 40 to 60 minutes, or until tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool in pan on rack for 20 minutes.

Remove bread from pan, and completely cool, if you have that kind of self-control.  Otherwise, try a piece hot with melting butter on it.
