Old-Fashioned Zucchini Bread

Yield: 2 loaves

Not only does this recipe for old-fashioned zucchini bread freeze well, it also makes a great breakfast or quick snack.


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups unpeeled, coarsely grated zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two 9x5x3-inch loaf pans. In a large bowl, beat the eggs until light and fluffy. Add the sugar, oil, zucchini, and vanilla extract, and mix lightly but until well blended.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon, and mix well. Stir the flour mixture into the egg-zucchini mixture, stirring until well blended. Fold in the nuts.

Divide the batter evenly between the two pans and bake for 1 hour, or until a knife or toothpick inserted in the middle of one of the loaves comes out clean.

    I searched all over for an old family recipe and was unable to find it … this one turned out even better than that old tried and true recipe I had lost; this will become the new family recipe!
