Perfect Zucchini Bread

Perfect Zucchini Bread | Fall Recipe | Easy Baking


I LOVE zucchini bread – it’s not too sweet and it’s perfect for breakfast or dessert.  It seems that everything this time of year is pumpkin-flavored.  And I’m not complaining – this mama is a big pumpkin fan.  But it’s refreshing to experience a treat with a different fall flavor.

Everyone loves this bread and it’s super easy to make.  When my three-year-old requests it (he calls it “breakfast bread”), I can’t help but feel like it’s a parenting win since he’s eating something green.  I realize the sugar probably cancels out any health benefits, but I’ll take what I can get!

Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think.


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup unpeeled, grated zucchini
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350.  Spray a 8x4x2-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, salt, and baking powder.  Create a well in the center of the dry mixture.
  3. In the well of the dry mixture, add egg, sugar, zucchini, and oil.  Stir by hand until entire mixture is moistened.  Batter should be lumpy.
  4. Bake for 55 minutes.  Wait 10 minutes before serving or removing from the loaf pan.
  5. I like to serve warm slices topped with butter.
