I'm not sure what I like best about this recipe -- the way it tastes, or how good it makes my house smell while it's baking!

How to Make Zucchini Bread


  • 1NOTE: This recipe is a double-batch, so it will make TWO LOAVES. If you only want one, split the ingredient amounts in half.
  • 2Preheat oven to 325. Peel and shred zucchini, set aside. Sift flour with salt, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, and baking soda. Set aside.
  • 3Beat eggs until foamy. Add in oil, sugar, and vanilla.
  • 4Fold in zucchini.
  • 5Add flour mixture.
  • 6Turn batter into well-greased/floured or sprayed loaf pans. Bake for 60-75 minutes, depending on your oven. Test center of bread with a toothpick to check for doneness.
  • 7Cool in pans for 10 minutes, then turn onto baking rack to cool entirely.
  • 8TIP: When bread is cooled, I wrap pretty tightly with saran wrap, then tinfoil and let them sit on the counter for 24 hours. This makes the bread a bit more moist and the spices bloom a bit more. Serve with soft butter.
