How To Make easy zucchini bread

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350ºF and grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan; set aside.
  • 2
    In a large bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and allspice; whisk until mixed.
  • 3
    In another bowl, whisk eggs and sugars together. Add oil, apple sauce and vanilla extract; whisk until blended. Stir in zucchini.

    Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and gently stir until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts.

    Spread batter evenly in the prepared pan and transfer to the preheated oven. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean with just a few crumbs.
