"This zucchini bread recipe is super moist and super spicy, loaded with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. I tried several recipes before I asked my mom for her recipe. I go to the farmers market every Saturday and get these huge zucchinis, and this is the perfect use for them. It reminds me of my childhood. The loaves can be frozen and are great as gifts. People love them."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 9x5-inch loaf pans.
  2. Beat sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until smooth; fold in zucchini. Stir flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, nutmeg, baking powder, and cloves together in a separate bowl; gradually stir into sugar mixture until batter is mixed. Fold walnuts and raisins into the batter; pour into the prepared loaf pans.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean, about 50 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Any variety of nut can be substituted for walnuts, if desired.

Delicious! We did add a little extra vanilla. We didn't have 2 loaf pans so we baked 1/2 the mix in a loaf pan and made muffins out of the other 1/2. We baked the muffins for about 20 minutes...

I thought this was excellent even though I am picky about my zucchini bread, not too sweet but hearty, warm and treating. I think I am going to add some brown sugar next time though.

Very good, changed nothing and recipe is perfect the way it is written. Thank you

Pretty nice, rich taste. Also baked as muffins for 25 min. I used half AP flour and half WW flour. They have a brown color which is perfect for this spiced treat :)
