Got this from my friend Judy, it's the best zucchini bread recipe i've found so far. Serve for breakfast, a snack or dessert. It's great with butter, plain or cream cheese. We are not fans of nutmeg, BUT this recipe is the exception.

How to Make Judy's Zucchini Bread


  1. You will need 2 Cups of grated zucchini. IF you are using an 8-10 young zucchini, there's no need to peel or de-seed. IF they get away from you and you have a baseball bat sized one, just peel it lightly, cut it in half and remove the seeds.
  2. Combine and mix wet ingredients in a large mixing bowl.....you can beat the eggs and add separately. i just usually add them 1 at a time and let the mixer do the work. The grated zucchini is considered a wet ingredient. Set aside.
  3. In another large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Stir to mix.
  4. Turn the mixer on low and slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet. Mix until well combined.
  5. IF you are using nuts, now is the time to add them, stir them in. It's just as good with or without. We have a lot of nut allergies, so I usually leave them out, or maybe just add to one loaf.......I especially like pecans or black walnuts in this.
  6. Spray or butter 2 loaf pans well. I use Baker's Joy. It will stick if you don't. Bake at 350* for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool in pan, 5-10 min and remove to wire rack.
  7. This freezes well. If you are over-run with zucchini, grate and freeze it in 2 Cup amounts. Thaw in a colander and squeeze/press the moisture out. You do not need to squeeze the moisture out of the freshly grated zucchini, although i do usually let it hang out in the colander for a bit, while i'm mixing everything else up.
