I've made lots of zucchini bread with so so luck until a friend gave me a loaf of hers. It's absolutely the best you'll ever eat. Texture and taste; it has it all. As recipe states let cool completely before slicing. Grease loaf pans well well!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add without beating between additions --.
  2. the zucchini, course grated not fine. flour, sugar, canola oil, vanilla, ground cinnamon, salt, baking soda, cloves, baking powder and the nuts.
  3. Grease bottoms only of two 9 x 5-inch loaf pans VERY well.
  4. Beat all ingredients on low speed of electric mixer, scrapeing sides of bowl for 1 minute -- beat on medium speed 1 minute.
  5. For even loaves, use a 1 cup measuring cup to scoop batter and pour into each pan at a time.

  7. Place pans on a wire cake rack for 10 minutes, then remove from pans and let cool c o m p l e t e l y . yes completely -- before slicing or bread will not be moist. i sliced it while warm and as my friend said it was not moist. a completely different bread when totally cooled.

Really good bread - super flavorful. I only made a few changes. I used half brown sugar and half white. I also subbed half of the flour with whole wheat and I used walnuts. Again, great bread - better the second day for sure. Super moist!!
