Cuisine American
Prep Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Cook Time 55 minutes
Servings 2 loaves


  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup real butter (two sticks)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded zucchini pressed down in cup
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon sugar for topping


  1. Beat sugar and butter together until soft and fluffy. Add eggs and beat again until well blended.

    Add spices, baking soda and baking powder. Mix well.

    Add zucchini and gradually beat in the flour, stopping to scrape down sides of bowl. Keep mixing on low speed just until all flour has been blended in. Don't over mix. Optional: Add 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans to batter.

    Put in two loaf pans which have been sprayed or well greased on the bottom only. (This lets the bread rise higher.) Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar for a slightly crunchy top.

    Bake at 350 degrees about 55 minutes or until a toothpick or skewer comes out clean. Let cool in pan about 10 minutes on cooling rack then invert and bread should slide right out.

    This can be made into mini loaves, reduce baking time. Great for sharing!

    Cool, slice, enjoy. Wrap up leftovers in plastic film to keep fresh. Freezes well.
