This is a delicious zucchini bread made with shredded zucchini, cinnamon, vanilla, and chopped nuts. Feel free to use walnuts or pecans in this zucchini bread. Here's a larger picture of the zucchini bread. Enjoy!

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 55 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes

Yield: Makes 2 Loaves


  • 2 cups shredded raw zucchini
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts


Heat the oven to 350° F (180° C/Gas Mark 4) . Grease and flour two 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pans.

Put zucchini in mesh strainer or colander and press or squeeze with hands to get some of the excess liquid out.

In a mixing bowl beat eggs, sugar, and oil together. Stir in the flour, baking powder, soda, cinnamon, salt, vanilla, and walnuts, mixing just until all ingredients are combined. Add drained zucchini. Mix well.

Pour into the prepared loaf pans. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out with very little or no crumbs clinging to it. 

Makes 2 loaves.

Everyone enjoyed this bread!, Member zzcookie

This was easy to make and even my picky eating son came back for more. My husband didnt like the idea of zucchini in bread but he said it smelled really good so he tasted it. He really liked it! One thing: I added half a banana to the mixture before adding the flour and zucchini. I would add a pinch more salt next time. The carmelized candy top was a winner!
