  • Hand mixer
  • Strainer and bowl


  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 1/2 cups grated zucchini
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tbsp. nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. vanilla
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • Spray cooking oil for greasing the pan


  • Grate the zucchini and add it to a strainer on top of a bowl. Let it sit there a few hours to give the zucchini time to drain out some of the water/zucchini juice. This will help with the overall moisture content. Set aside in the refrigerator at least three hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix together the dry ingredients and whisk well.
  • Add in the wet ingredients - except the zucchini - and mix well with a hand mixer.
  • Remove the zucchini front the fridge and press out any extra water still remaining between two paper towels (See video for demonstration).
  • Fold the zucchini into the bread mix with a spatula or spoon.
  • Grease the pan with a cooking spray and line the bottom with parchment paper.
  • Add the batter to the pan and make sure its nice and even.
  • Bake for 40 minutes and then check with a toothpick or bamboo skewer. If you're using two small pans that are not deep then this should take 40 minutes. If you're using a full sized bread pan then this can take up to 60/65 minutes.
  • Let the bread cool for 1 hour once it is removed from the oven. Slice and enjoy!
