Best Zucchini Bread Recipe

Total Cooktime: 3 1/2 - 4 hours


What you will need:

  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 c. vegetable oil
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/3 c. zucchini, peeled and grated
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 to 1 c. chopped nuts
Use a grater and grate your zucchini. You can also use a food processor to do this if you have one available. I use a Microplane 34006 4-Sided Box Grater.  I got this for Chirstmas last year and it really makes grating zucchini and cheeses easy.


Put aside. Grease and flour a 2 quart metal baking pan. You can substitute a 2 pound coffee can if you don't have one that will fit inside your crockpot.

Using a mixer beat your eggs until they are foamy and light. Add oil, sugar, grated zucchini and vanilla to the eggs and mix well.  In a separate bowl mix all the dry ingrediants including the nuts. Add the dry ingrediants to your egg mixture a little at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix on medium for 2-3 minutes until fully incorporated. Pour into your baking pan.

Place the zucchini bread recipe into your crockpot.  Take 8 paper towels and cover the top of your pan. Cover your crockpot and bake on high for approximately 3 1/2 to 4 hours. To determine if your bread is ready, insert a toothpick into the center. If it comes out clean your zucchini bread is done. Let stand for 5 minutes before turning out onto a baking rack for cooling.

Serve warm or at room temperature. Wrap and keep in the fridge or freezer.

One important thing I will tell you is that you DO NOT want to check or remove the crockpot cover until the last 1/2 hour of cooking. Doing so too early will cause your zucchini bread to fall and you will end up with a mushy mess. I learned this one the hard way.


Make it Healthy:  In order to make this healthier you may want to substitute egg beaters for the eggs, splenda baking sugar substitute for the sugar and applesauce for the oil. These suggestions also work well to make this zucchini bread recipe diabetically friendly.

I would love to hear your experiences with this recipe including anything you have done to alter it to suit your family's tastes!

Enjoy!
