We all have our favorite Zucchini Bread recipes…and this one’s mine. It has been in my family for years and comes from our family friend, Lydia. I just love it.

Zucchini Bread From Lydia

  • 3 eggs well beaten
  • 1 cup oil
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini (I use heaping cup-fulls)
  • 2 t vanilla extract
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Prepare 2 loaf pans with Pam for Baking.

In the bowl of a standing mixer, beat the eggs. Next add the oil. sugar, zucchini and vanilla, mix well.

In a separate bowl whisk the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon. With the mixer on low, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Turn mixer to medium until well combined. Pour into prepared pans.

Bake for 60-70 minutes, or until cake tester comes out clean. Cool on wire racks. Each loaf serves 16, in theory.

A little extra…

Saw this on A Fridge Full of Food, What Kind of Cereal Are You?

You Are Corn Flakes

You are traditional and easy going.
If something is high quality, you’re satisfied with it.

You don’t need much variety or novelty in your life.
You’re happy with what you have. You’re quite loyal.

You’re the type of person who eats the same breakfast every day…
And likely at the exact same time each day!

  1. YUM!! There is nothing like the smell of bread filling up a kitchen. Looks delicious.

    LOL about you being a “Corn Flake”! You are the most loyal friend, that’s for sure.

  2. mrmmmm!!! can you add walnuts to this?

  3. The original recipe does call for 1/2 cups of nuts…so sure, throw them in if you like. Me, I like nuts in my banana bread, but not zucchini bread for some reason.
