Zucchini Cinnamon Sugar Bread Recipe

Zucchini Cinnamon Sugar Bread Recipe

My good friend called me and said she had a giant zucchini from her garden that I could have. I was so excited and grateful, as I love garden zucchini. I drove over, and sure enough, it was over a foot and a half long! So, I got out my mom’s moist and delicious Zucchini Cinnamon Sugar Bread recipe and started baking. This recipe is loved by almost everyone who tries it—especially my dad. The cinnamon flavor is very light and balances perfectly the zucchini flavor and sweetness from the sugar.

My 18-month-old daughter discovered the bread this morning and would not leave it alone. She kept trying to take handfuls out of the loaf! She gave a little to my 3 year old and he said, “This tastes like, like… CAKE!!!”, which made me really laugh. It really was a huge hit in our family! My friend came over yesterday and had some. She commented on how moist it is. So, if you have any zucchini, trust me: this is a must-make!

Ingredients

1/2 C. oil
1 3/4 C. sugar
2 beaten eggs
2 C. unpeeled grated or shredded zucchini, closely packed
3 C. flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Optional – 1/2 Cup chopped nuts

The zucchini can be grated finely or even shredded more thickly. I’ve experimented baking with both consistencies and they both turn out great. If you have a large zucchini, I would recommend trying to avoid/pick out the extra large zucchini seeds. When I make it, I leave the seeds in the zucchini as I shred it more thickly as shown in photos below. After shredding, I pick out the large intact seeds.  You can also use a food processor to grate the zucchini as well.

Make sure the zucchini is closely packed when making the bread. This is so there is a lot of moisture and enough vegetable bulk.

The top of the loaf should look like the photo above, remove it from the oven before the sides get too dark/overdone.

5- Cool and serve with butter.

I personally love this Kerrygold butter (salted variety for bread). It is from grass-fed Irish cows and is very delicious. I find it at Costco and many grocery stores, as well as Amazon.

    I brought a loaf of this bread to the office and it was gone in minutes.

  2. Yummy! Cinnamon sugar zucchini bread sounds delicious! Last year my husband’s grandma let me take a GIANT zucchini home and I seriously couldn’t made like 10 loaves of bread with it. I’ll have to try this recipe out!

  3. I love garden zucchini too! I had a big garden at our old house and would frequently find a zucchini that had been hidden under those giant leaves and had grown 14 or more inches long – I hate to waste and they are perfect for baking, just like this! Gonna have to give this bread a try – know my little ones would eat it up too!

  5. […] baking time. My zucchini bread recipe bakes for 60 minutes. I bake my zucchini bread muffins for 27 or so minutes. My banana bread bakes […]

    This looks very good. I bet if you peel the zucchini first NO ONE would know it had zucchini. My picky son can always detect green (ack! a vegetable!) in his food.
