The Best Zucchini Bread! Light, super moist and delicious, this zucchini bread would make a great addition to your brunch table this Fall. Like most zucchini bread recipes, it is made with staple ingredients including; some cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice, along with 2 cups of freshly grated zucchini. Together they create warm flavors making this the BEST tasting Zucchini Bread ever!
Keep in mind, this is super easy too! You will only need 1 bowl, a good whisk and 10 minutes to make, then bake. Yes, it’s that easy!
This Best Zucchini Bread was a test recipe since my daughter requested if I would make one without any chocolate, for my grandchildren, of course! I took one of my favorite zucchini bread recipes and omitted the chocolate and added in a little more flour and some of the warm spices. I only added a small amount of pumpkin pie spice, but you can add in a bit more if you prefer.
And once we realized this zucchini bread turned out so well, I had to post it and call it the Best Zucchini Bread! For me, not every test recipe I make turns out great, but when it does – I’m proud to let you know!
Once again, the zucchini is completely hidden in this bread, making it a healthy alternative, but remember – I won’t tell, if you won’t!
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
- 2 cups packed grated zucchini
- ½ cup butter (1 stick, melted and cooled)
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. baking soda

- ¼ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
- ¼ tsp. salt
- 1 + ¾ cups all-purpose flour
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-inch loaf pan with some butter and dust with all purpose flour.
- In one large bowl, whisk together sugar, egg and egg yolk until its creamy and a light yellow color, about 1 minute.
- Whisk in the zucchini. Then slowly whisk in the melted butter, vanilla extract, baking soda, ground cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and salt.
- Finally, gradually whisk in the flour until all the flour mixture is well incorporated, about 2 minutes or 15 to 20 strokes.
