We all LOVE zucchini bread!! With zucchini coming in the garden now, we’ll be enjoying a lot of this fresh bread. Here’s my go-to recipe, adapted from the BHG Cookbook.

Zucchini Bread

  • 1 1/2 c. all purpose flour (soft or hard wheat work well also)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 c. finely shredded unpeeled zucchini (use a cheese grater for this)
  • 1/4 c. cooking oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp finely shredded lemon peel (opt.)

In a mixing bowl combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg. In another mixing bowl, combine sugar, shredded zucchini, cooking oil, egg, and lemon peel (if using this). Mix well. Add flour mixture to the zucchini mixture, stirring just until combined.

Pour batter into a greased loaf pan 8x4x2. Bake at 350* for 55-60 min. or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack.

  1. Are there any adjustments to be made to recipe using frozen vs fresh zucchini as there is a lot of liquid in the frozen?

    • Just drain the liquid out of the zucchini it will work fine. Also if you add a cup of chopped walnuts and a cup of raisins this bread is to die for! You can also get quart size zip bags and make up 2 cups of shedded zucchini in each bag you will have the measured amount you need instead of thawing a whole bunch of it every time you need it.

  2. I know this is 3 years after you posted this recipe, but I have to tell you that the batter tastes delicious..lol.. so I’m looking forward to a delicious zucchini bread. Yum!

  3. AH! I am doing this TODAY! Our zucchinis are blowing up right now! I love it! However, I discovered a giant one hiding under some leaves… so, this will be the perfect way to dispose of it! Thanks for sharing!
