Classic Zucchini Bread

Happy hump day! We are almost to the weekend. I saw that zucchini squash was on sale at the market this week so that was about all the excuse I needed to make this Zucchini Bread. It has been a little while since I have made zucchini bread and I love it so I am not sure why. It is one of those recipes that I do not think about too often unless I have an abundance of zucchini.  Zucchini is one of my favorite vegetables because it has such a great taste no matter how it is prepared, and it is good for you. So today I am celebrating hump day by sharing my Classic Zucchini Bread Recipe.

This bread is very tasty on its own and does not need any kind of frosting or icing. You will not need to add any topping as it is moist and buttery. Just the kind of thing that makes hump day a little bit better!

 

Classic Zucchini Bread Recipe

1 1/2 cups flour

3/4 cups sugar

1 1/4 cups fresh zucchini squash, washed and grated

1/3 cup butter, melted

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

 

Pre-heat oven to 350°. Grease loaf baking pan with butter or oil. In a mixing bowl, blend together dry ingredients, butter, and eggs.

Add the shredded zucchini to the dry ingredients.

Pour into loaf pan. Bake  35-40 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.

Makes one delicious loaf. Let cool a little bit before slicing. This recipe may also be used to make muffins.

The bread is also great for lunch boxes and after-school or after-work snacks.

  1. I love Zucchini bread, but I have never made it before because I thought it might be difficult. Thanks for posting a super easy and delicious recipe. Stopping by from Hump Day Happenings.

  2. Looks delicious! Thanks for linking up with Hump Day Happenings. You have been pinned! See you next week.

  3. YUM! This sounds so fantastic. My grandma used to make zucchini brownies, which were out of sight delicious. Everyone ate them, even the people who hated vegetables. I think the zucchini gives baked goods really good moisture.

    Thanks for sharing on Hump Day Happenings!

  4. It’s been a while since I’ve had Zucchini Bread but I do enjoy it. I’ve never tried making it before either but I’m certainly interested now. Your recipe looks simple and delicious!

  5. Delicious! I’d love to add Anise seeds to it and toast it for breakfast. The first picture made me crave it really bad 🙂

  6. Hi Raquel! I love zucchini and this bread looks wonderful! I like to make parmesan zucchini – my family will eat just about anything if it has marinara and parmesan on it! 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing at Best of the Weekend – pinned to our party board. Hope you have a happy Sunday and a wonderful week!

  7. Yours looks so good! We do get a lot of zucchinis but not quite yet. Now it’s asparagus. Definitely not as good in bread as this!!!

  8. Yum, what a great idea! I think I have to make some zucchini bread soon 🙂
