  • 3 cups flour all purpose
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups zucchini grated
  • 3 eggs whisked
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 cup nuts chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 3 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 350°
  • Generously spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
  • Start by sifting together the dry ingredients - flour, baking powder, soda and salt - set aside.
  • Next whisk together the eggs. Add the oil, vanilla, zucchini until well incorporated. Though you can do it by hand, I prefer to use a a hand or stand mixer.
  • Add the flour in three batches, mix to combine.
  • Add the nuts and mix to combine with a spoon.
  • Spoon the batter into a loaf pan..Place in a preheated oven for one hour to one hour twenty minutes. I've found that cooking times really vary depending on the type of loaf pan you use.
  • Check for doneness at one hour with a toothpick. When it comes out clean, the loaf is done! Cool for 15 minutes. Run a knife around the edges and remove from pan. Allow cool, serve and enjoy!



Be sure to check the doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of the loaf. If it's not done, allow it to bake for another 5 minutes and check again.
Recipe can be double and the second loaf easily frozen. Allow it to cool completely, double wrap with plastic, then foil. Tuck into a plastic bag and freeze. It will last up to six months when well wrapped. Freeze whole - avoid slicing the loaf until you're ready to serve. It will stay more fresh that way.
