The Best Zucchini Bread is moist, super delicious, and will melt-in-your-mouth with every single bite! A wonderful addition to add to your brunch table this Fall.  Loaded with 2 cups of zucchini, cinnamon, and some pumpkin pie spice, making this the BEST tasting Zucchini Bread ever!


Fall is all about baking!  But, as always, I try to make ones that are super easy too and this happens to be one of them. 

For this recipe, you will only need ONE bowl, a good whisk, and 10 minutes to whip it up. 

The warm, cozy flavors are fabulous!  Plus, the soft, moist texture inside with a slightly crunchy crust on the outside, makes this the most delicious tasting bread – ever!   

Trust me, when my family gives me the thumbs up – you know it’s good.

I have to confess… this recipe was an actual test recipe for me.  Since my oldest daughter requested I make a zucchini bread without any chocolate … for my grandchildren, of course! 

So I took one of my favorite recipes, my triple chocolate zucchini bread recipe, and omitted the chocolate completely.   Then I adapted my recipe and added in a little more flour and some of the warm spices like cinnamon to make the bread taste better and even cozier.    

I knew the flavor would turn our bland without the chocolate, and hoped my additions would make the bread taste better.  I even added some pumpkin pie spice, and surprisingly, it worked just fine!

So with a great outcome (and from a test recipe) I knew had to post it and called it the Best Zucchini Bread!  For me, not every recipe I make turns out great, but when it does – I’m proud to let you know!

Best part?  As always, the zucchini is completely hidden in this bread, making it a healthy alternative! But remember – I won’t tell – if you won’t!

Try this recipe, it won’t disappoint! 


Baking Notes and Tips:

  • No need to squeeze out any liquid from the grated zucchini.  It makes my bread very soft and moist inside, and it will melt-in-your-mouth with every bite.

  • When the bread has cooled enough to handle, wrap the bread tightly in a clear wrap. This will ensure the bread will stay moist. 

  • Zucchini Bread is delicious served chilled, but it’s best served at room temperature.

  • Homemade bread is perfect to give as a gift!

Storing and Freezing:

  • Zucchini bread will stay fresh for up to 3 days at room temperature.  It’s best to keep the bread sealed and wrapped with a clear wrap to keep fresh and moist.   

  • You may also, keep zucchini bread chilled in your refrigerator and for up to 5 days.

  •  It freezes perfectly for up to one month.
