This is my MASTER zucchini recipe. No need to look further. I've tried 3 recipes from this site, and this one is the BEST. I do half and half oil/applesauce and subsititute and reduce to 2 cups of sugar - plenty sweet! 1 cup brown sugar for the white. The brown sugar adds so much more richness and depth of flavor than just using all white sugar. I did start using at least 3 cups zucchini. It melts and disappears into the bread and all you end up tasting is the cinnamon. So 3-4 cups is best, with true zucchini flavor. It won't be green, trust me. No nuts needed or draining/squeezing out the zucchini either. The water adds to the moistness of the bread. 55 min. cook time for me. I did 60 min. the first time and it wasn't as moist. I live in the city, so I don't have a garden, but since zucchini is available year round, you can make this anytime of the year. Super quick and easy to make and my 2 and 5 yr. old inhale this stuff. Don't tell them about the veggies and they won't know it's there!!

I had a large zucchini so I doubled the recipe. I used 1 1/2 C oil and 3 1/2 C sugar. I though the result was good, but not fantastic. Next time, I will try the chocolate zucchini bread versions.

Very moist and good. I added a crumb topping as another reviewer suggested and that was fabulous! By trial and error, I discovered that the topping works best when added 15 minutes into the baking time. That way, the topping stays on top rather than sinking down into the batter as the bread bakes. I made 5 mini-loaves and baked a total of 40 minutes. (Crumb Topping: 1/2 c. regular oats, 1/2 c. brown sugar, 1/4 c. flour, 1/4 t. cinnamon, 1/4 c. butter.)

Just a note to reviewers Draining zucchini . DON'T You are taking out the moisture the recipe requires. I fairly firmly pack shredded zucchini then I do not fold in I use a beater on medium speed and the bread is moist and good

excellant recipe ! I replaced 1 cup of the plain flour with whole wheat flour , used unsweetened applesauce in place of the oil, reduced the sugar by 1/2 a cup and used ener-g egg replacer for a much healthier ,vegan version . The bread came out beautiful , moist and tasty :)

Great way to use up some of the zucchini in our garden. I'm a mother of three and I'm always looking for ways to sneak in vegetables and fruit whenever I can. I also make substitutions to ingredients to make the recipe a bit healthier without compromising the taste. For this recipe I did the following substitutions: 1) for the flour I used half white (1 1/2 C) and half whole wheat (1 1/2 C). 2) I cut the salt in half (1/2 t) 3) Instead of 3 eggs, I used 2 egg whites and 2 mashed bananas 4) I used half the oil (1/2 C) and added 1/2 C of plain applesauce 5) I decreased the sugar to 1 C. I scooped the batter into a muffin pan and convection baked it for 11 minutes. The muffins were wonderful and the whole family gobbled them up.

This is the best base for a zucchini bread I've ever had. I changed it some so my daughter would eat it. I left out the cinnamon and added milk choc. chips. To make it more healthy, I added 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 applesauce. I took this to a church dinner and one little girl ate 5 pieces and another ate 6.

I lost my original zucchini bread recipe so I was looking for something similar. This recipe was it! But I added an 8 oz. can of crushed pineapple and some cut up maraschino cherries. This recipe turned out better than my original recipe and to top it off I got three loaves of bread out of it. Everyone loved this one, even my super picky kids.
