Yummy Zucchini Spice Bread

I have a lot of favorite things about summertime but all of the wonderful fresh veggies is probably my favorite. I made this Zucchini bread the other day and sent a loaf to work with hubs. It was a HUGE hit and I am making it again today! This is the recipe I use:

  Zucchini Spice Bread


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 large zucchini
  • 2 C packed light-brown sugar
  • 4 T granulated sugar
  • 1 1/3 C vegetable oil
  • 4 t or (1 T and 1 t)vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 C all-purpose flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1 T ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 t ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 t ground ginger
  • 1/4 t ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 t salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat two 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan with cooking spray, and set aside. Grate zucchini on the large holes of a box grater (when grated mine fills my 2 cup measuring cup a little over the edge); set aside. In a large bowl (or stand mixer), whisk together sugars, oil, vanilla, and eggs.
  2. Into a small bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and salt (I am too impatient for sifting so I just whisk all of the dry ingredients together really well. You want the mixture to look really smooth. No big clumps!) Add flour mixture to egg mixture (I use my stand mixer & add about 1 cup of flour mixture at a time), and stir to combine well. Stir in grated zucchini.
  3. Pour batter into prepared pan, spreading evenly (Pan should be about 3/4 of the way full. It will rise quite a bit when baking). Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of loaf comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Cool in pan 10 minutes; invert onto a wire rack, then reinvert, top side up. Cool completely before slicing. And ENJOY!!!

    WARNING!!! If you send this to work with your husband you WILL start getting requests to make it again, and again and AGAIN! But I think this is a good thing. It's so nice when people enjoy your hard work so much! =)



  1. Yay! You must have figured it out :). I plan to try this recipe...especially after the review from Dan's co-worker! BTW...Jeremiah and I think you should make your font's hard for our old eyes to read. Ha.

  2. K. Font is bigger! Too big? I dont know I think I kind of like it.
