Classic Zucchini Bread

Sharing is caring!

This easy Classic Zucchini Bread is moist and buttery and full of summer goodness. My recipe has a light sprinkling of brown sugar to give it a little sweetness, without loading it up with sugar. 

Zucchini Bread

Hi Friends! I hope you are having a wonderful week!

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.

 Just the kind of thing that makes hump day a little bit better!

This easy Classic Zucchini Bread is moist and buttery and full of summer goodness. My recipe has a light sprinkling of brown sugar to give it a little sweetness, without loading it up with sugar. 


  • 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
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar for topping


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

    2. Add the shredded zucchini to the dry ingredients.

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

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

timesaving tips to streamline recipes

  • This recipe is so easy to make and you can make the dry ingredient base ahead of time and just add the zucchini and wet ingredients.
  • You can freeze the shredded zucchini in an airtight container until ready to use. This is a great way to store zucchini if you have it in abundance. 
  • You can double the recipe and make two loaves. Just wrap and freeze in an airtight container. It should last 2-3 months.
