I never have any of this left. It disappears faster than the time it takes to make it!

Oh gosh, yummy is right when describing this zucchini bread. It's super moist with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg throughout. We opted to use pecans and dried cranberries. So good! They added a crunchy texture with sweet and tart bits in every bite.

How To Make yummy yum yum zucchini bread

  • Ingredients combined in a mixing bowl.
    Preheat oven to 350*F. In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Mix in the grated zucchini and then the melted butter.

    Sprinkle baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour, a third at a time. Sprinkle in the cinnamon and nutmeg, and mix. Fold in the nuts and dried cranberries or raisins, if using.
  • Batter poured into loaf pans.
    Divide the batter equally between two greased 5x9-inch loaf pans. Bake for 1 hour (check for doneness at 50 minutes) or until a wooden pick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean.

    Cool in pans for 10 minutes. Turn out onto wire racks to cool completely. Makes 2 loaves.
