The Best Zucchini Bread – EVER!

Zucchini bread topped with cinnamon & sugar and light in texture

I’ve been busy this week stretching my time between work, more work, hoeing out for a yard sale, and planning our FIRST EVER CAMPING TRIP with the PINK PARADISE.

It won’t be long and we’ll officially be christening the camper that we’ve worked so hard to rehabilitate.   Our reservations are booked!  There really is such a fun energy that comes with planning a trip.  Especially one that is long overdue!

The Best Ever Zucchini Bread

In my not so spare time, I baked something special to share with all of you too. If you like zucchini bread then I can almost promise you that you’re going to love this recipe!  And if you don’t like zucchini bread, then I can almost promise you that you’re going to love this recipe!  This is a moist bread but the texture is lighter than most recipes.  The cinnamon & sugar topping makes it extra special too.  However, the only way you’re going to know that for sure is to make some for yourselves.

I have made up my mind that this will be my “go to zucchini bread recipe” from this day forward.

A light textured zucchini bread that's topped off with a great tasting cinnamon & sugar mixture.


  • 3 Large eggs
  • 2/3 cups olive oil
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups zucchini (peeled & grated)


Step 1
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour two 5x7 pans.
Step 2
In a large bowl, beat eggs, sugars, and oil.
Step 3
Add salt, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla, and flour; mix thoroughly. Fold in zucchini.
Step 4
Pour into prepared pans. Bake for about 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of each loaf.
Step 5
While warm, sprinkle tops of loaves with prepared cinnamon & sugar mixture. Cool before removing from pans.

Did you know that you can grate zucchini and freeze it?  If you have a recipe that you know calls for a specific amount of grated zucchini like this one does, just package accordingly to make thawing and use easier.
