Your Kids Will Love It Zucchini Bread

A few months ago I stumbled upon the best zucchini bread recipe ever! I like a lot of vegetables and love bread, but was never a big fan of the zucchini bread until now!

I make this recipe every 2 or 3 weeks and my kids gratefully gobble it up. They have even said it tastes like chocolate, yet there is no chocolate in the ingredients!!

I found the recipe at and modified it slightly.


3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3 tsp ground cinnamon
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 1/4 cups sugar
3 tsp vanilla
2 cups very finely grated zucchini

1. Grease and flour two 8 x 4 in. pans. Preheat oven to 325ยบ F.
2. Combine flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, & cinnamon in a bowl.
3. Beat eggs, oil, vanilla, & sugar together in a large bowl. Add dry ingredients from step 2 and beat well. Stir in the zucchini. Pour the batter into the prepared pans.
4. Bake about 50 minutes or until center is set and springs back up when lightly pressed.

Hint: I'm not big on tons of extra fancy kitchen appliances (for example I have a hand-crank can opener rather than electric) but this mini food chopper really makes it easy to get the zucchini super finely grated, which is what makes the recipe so yummy and kid-friendly!
