Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Zucchini Bread

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!

Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is ZUCCHINI BREAD!!

I like zucchini bread as much as I do banana bread. It’s moist and flavorful and one of the wonderful ways to use up the tons of zucchini you end up with if you’re a gardener. 🙂 I don’t think it’s possible to just make one loaf so it’s great this recipe makes two loaves!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!


P.S. We’re at 105 recipes and counting with this posting. Hope you find some recipes you like. If this is your first visit, please check out past blogs for more Killer Fixin’s.

[Makes 2 loaves]

3 eggs
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 cup oil
1 tsp. baking soda
2 cups grated raw zucchini, drained
¼ tsp baking powder
3 tsp. vanilla
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup chopped nuts

Beat eggs until light and foamy.  Add sugar, oil, zucchini and vanilla.  Mix lightly, but well.  Combine flour, salt, soda, baking powder, and cinnamon.  Add to egg and zucchini mixture.  Stir well until blended.  Add nuts.  Bake 1 hour in preheated 350 degree oven.  Make two 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaves.

NOTE:  If you’re like me, and don’t love nuts in your sweet breads, you don’t have to include them. 🙂

    1. I like both…in their own time. I do have a great banana bread recipe that my MIL made. Really is best I’d ever had. Moist and flavorful. Zucchini bread is simply different taste and, heaven knows, if you only grow a plant or two, it produces a lot of zucchini. Finding recipes for zucchini can be a challenge! 🙂
